Install Terraform on Centos8

If you have not tried Terraform or have not heard of it, look it up. The product is made by the wonderful company called HashiCorp and they also have other programs that can make your life much easier in this new cloud world.

Enough of that, lets get into it.

Just make sure your box is up to date

dnf update

Install wget

dnf install wget

Install unzip

dnf install unzip

Download the newest version of terraform

wget https://releases.hashicorp.com/terraform/0.12.24/terraform_0.12.24_linux_amd64.zip

Uznip the package

unzip terraform_0.12.24_linux_amd64.zip

Copy terraform to /usr/local/bin

cp terraform /usr/local/bin

Verify that its ready for us

terraform –v

You should be ready now to deploy using Terraform. In my next blog I will post how to deploy to vCenter a VM using a template.
