My python is 2.7.5,

-bash-4.2$ python --version
Python 2.7.5

By default it doesn't have python pip.

My Linux is Redhat ERHL 7.3.

-bash-4.2$ cat /etc/redhat-release
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 7.3 (Maipo)

I have also checked that I don't have python-pip in Linux repository.

-bash-4.2$ yum search python-pip
Loaded plugins: product-id, rhnplugin, search-disabled-repos, subscription-manager

My way to install pip is using get-pip.py. I got the get-pip.py from https://packaging.python.org/installing/

The download link is https://bootstrap.pypa.io/get-pip.py

I downloaded it for my windows laptop and ftp upload it to the Linux server.

When I ran python get-pip.py. It tried a connection to the Internet.

-bash-4.2$ python get-pip.py
Collecting pip
  Retrying (Retry(total=4, connect=None, read=None, redirect=None)) after connection broken by 'NewConnectionError('<pip._vendor.requests.packages.urllib3.connection.VerifiedHTTPSConnection object at 0x35755d0>: Failed to establish a new connection: [Errno 101] Network is unreachable',)': /simple/pip/

Question:

  • Where does it connect to?
  • Can I setup a private repository?
  • Is it pypi repo?
  • Can I use static web server for this pypi repo?
  • How can I set the get-pip.py to point the connection to my private repo?

  • From where did you obtain get-pip.py? The version I found has a base85 blob representing a zip file at the end, though just downloading from the source seems much more reasonable

    pip is in the EPEL repository, if you can add that, use it.

    Edit get-pip.py, changing with open(pip_zip, "wb") as fp to with open ("pip.zip", "wb") as fp. Remove bootstrap(tmpdir=tmpdir). Run it, unzip pip.zip, and copy the new pip directory to /usr/lib/pythonX.Y or wherever your system keeps Python libraries. I'm not posting this as an answer because I consider it "hackish" and bad

    If you have recent enough version of Python, you may be able to use ensurepip.

If you don't want to go the OS way, you can also download the source archive from PyPI and install it manually.

  1. Go to https://pypi.org/project/pip/#files
  2. Download and extract the archive file.
  3. Run python setup.py install

  • Not working because no dependencies - from setuptools import setup Commented Jun 18 at 20:08

Download the .rpm from EPEL repo and install using yum command.

https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/7Server/x86_64/Packages/p/python2-pip-8.1.2-8.el7.noarch.rpm

If you have recent enough version of Python (3.4 or higher), you may be able to use ensurepip.

ensurepip does not contact PyPI, but instead rely on a private copy of pip stored inside the standard library (src).
