Hi, and welcome to LQ!

The 'yum' repos would be on the Red Hat servers. Fedora is their 'testing' level distro, Red Hat is the stable enterprise version, and CentOS is the free stable release.

Cheers

For RHEL/Fedora/CentOS, yum repository is defined in /etc/yum.conf and/or /etc/yum.repo.d/*.repo

I think there was a typo error. It is /etc/yum.repos.d/


Code:
[root@box1 ~]# ls -ld /etc/yum.repos.d/
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Dec 31 09:32 /etc/yum.repos.d/
[root@box1 ~]#
[root@box1 ~]# ls -l /etc/yum.repos.d/*.repo
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 299 Dec 31 09:32 /etc/yum.repos.d/vikas.repo

And you can see the repository configuration location and find out if you want.
But I seem not to have understood you correctly. Are you talking about the physical location of the yum repo server or just the configuration section on your local machine?

when you try to install yum server that time you copy your file in cd/var/ftp/pub.
