I am using the following way to install pip on redhat 7.5 version

I download the pkg - pip-8.1.2-py2.py3-none-any.whl to the machine without network

and I instal it

python /root/pip-8.1.2-py2.py3-none-any.whl/pip install /root/pip-8.1.2-py2.py3-none-any.whl

but I am not sure if this is the right approach to install the pip ?

we try by -

clone https://github.com/psf/requests.git

then copy the file to the machine that not have network


python setup.py install

, but by this way I get errors , so we leave it

the errors are on the last line

any way we can see that from some unclear reason this approach try to get internet network , so I not understand why?

  • What errors do you get? Also, what's the point of setting up pip on a machine without internet access? – Panki Oct 18 '19 at 10:35

    Good question in my opinion. Too bad I don't have enough reputation to have my vote taken into account. Installing in python is often painful, every attempt to make it easier should be rewarded! – Vincent Achard Oct 18 '19 at 10:58

Answer using the latest pip version.

Download the setuptools compressed file from here:

wget https://files.pythonhosted.org/packages/f4/d5/a6c19dcbcbc267aca376558797f036d9bcdff344c9f785fe7d0fe9a5f2a7/setuptools-41.4.0.zip

Unzip , change directory then install it: python setup.py install

Download pip from here :

wget https://files.pythonhosted.org/packages/ce/ea/9b445176a65ae4ba22dce1d93e4b5fe182f953df71a145f557cffaffc1bf/pip-19.3.1.tar.gz

Untar , change directory then install it : python setup.py install

Old pip versions can be found here. pip 8.1.2

Old setuptools versions can be found here. setuptools 20.0.0
