I have a repository installed. I want to update that repository with new rpm files. Can I rerun
createrepo command on this repository in order to make my new files available to the servers using that repository?
--update option with
createrepo --update: Sometimes you have a lot of packages in your repsitory and regenerating the meta data for each package when only a few packages have been added or changed is just too time consuming. This is where --update comes in handy. You run createrepo just like you did before but you pass the --update flag to it. Like this:
createrepo --update </path/to/repo>
Now, createrepo will only update the items which have been changed, been added or been removed since the last time the meta data was generated.
