If you want to install Ajenti (GitHub) and cannot right now, because the official domain
ajenti.org has been overtaken, here are my notes to do it without the official repository. As
pip install ajenti is still possible, but installs a lot of packages of which many fail at first try, and installation via
yum and official Ajenti repository are currently not available, use these steps as a guideline. They do not represent or can substitute a complete tutorial.
Be sure to have root privileges :
su - or
For the installation you will have to add the EPEL repository.
rpm -Uvh http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/x86_64/epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm
yum groupinstall base, console-internet, core, debugging, directory-client, hardware-monitoring, java-platform, large-systems, network-file-system-client, performance, perl-runtime, server-platform yum groupinstall "Development Tools"
Note: You can append
-y to every line to make it install without further questioning.
Basic Python and building environment
yum install gcc gcc-c++.x86_64 compat-gcc-34-c++.x86_64 openssl-devel.x86_64 zlib*.x86_64 yum install libxslt libxml2 libxslt-devel libxml2-devel yum install zlib-devel bzip2-devel openssl-devel ncurses-devel sqlite-devel readline-devel tk-devel yum install python python-devel python-libs python-setuptools python-pip

If you want to use the latest curl version ( to be able to download files which present their filenames not via URI but only after (some) redirection(s) ), you can install it via the city-fan repository:
rpm -Uvh http://www.city-fan.org/ftp/contrib/yum-repo/city-fan.org-release-1-12.rhel6.noarch.rpm yum install libcurl
yum install libevent.x86_64 libevent-devel.x86_64 pip install greenlet pip install gevent
yum install ez_setup mako
pip install pyasn1 pip install python-ldap
pip install ajenti
To make the startup script work, which is already installed, you'll have to perform these last steps:
chmod u+x /etc/init.d/ajenti chkconfig --levels 235 ajenti on /etc/init.d/ajenti start
Ajenti should now be listening on Port 8000 (
Congratulations, you should be able to access it via webbrowser now. If not, check your

- If you are considering using different third party repositories, remi or city-fan might be of use to you.
- If something is not working, read the command line responses carefully. You could also leave a comment here, as I still got some kind of installation log.
- If a
pippackage could not be installed proberly, try to resolve its dependencies and reinstall with
pip install <PACKAGE> --upgrade
