Install Python pip on RHEL/Centos 7

When you initially try to install pip you may get an error as below:

# python –version
Python 2.7.5

[root]# yum install python-pip

No package python-pip available.
Error: Nothing to do

We need to install epel-release first:

[root] # yum install epel-release

epel-release.noarch 0:7-11

Next install pip:

[root]# yum install python-pip

python2-pip.noarch 0:8.1.2-10.el7

# pip –version

pip 8.1.2 from /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages (python 2.7)
