Pip is a tool for installing and managing packages for Python. The popular Python programming language is considered one of the easiest to learn because of its emphasis on code readability.

Pre-Flight Check

  • These instructions are intended specifically for installing Pip on Fedora 23. If you’re using a different operating system, check out our guides to installing pip on Fedora 21 and CentOS 7.
  • We’ll be working from a Liquid Web Self Managed Fedora 23 server and logging in as root.

Step #1: Install Pip

First, we’ll clean up our packages:

dnf clean all

As a matter of best practice we’ll now also update our packages:

dnf -y update

Now we’ll install python-pip and any required packages:

dnf -y install python-pip

Step #2: Verify the Installation

View a list of helpful commands:

pip --help

Check the version of Pip that is installed:

pip -V

Which should yield a result similar to:

pip 7.1.0 from /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages (python 2.7)
