Manual install directions by operating system#
These instructions explain how to manually install Salt on various operating systems. See Install Salt for an overview of the steps involved in installing Salt.
Pay close attention to package versions when navigating repo.saltproject.io. For example, if you are using a RedHat 7 variant, make sure you select RedHat and then select version 7. Otherwise, you will get the wrong repo and will install RedHat 8 Salt packages on a RedHat 7. Version incompatibility will throw unknown errors.
