Deleted all of the repos in yum.repos.d, how to restore them?


Hi all,

New to the forums, and new to Linux. Learning the best way I know how, and that's finding things to mess up and spending time to try to fix them. Tonight I decided to see what would happen if I deleted all of my repos from the yum.repos.d directory. Now, I can't seem to find out how to get the default repositories back, and can't find anything on Google. I'm on CentOS 6.5. How can I get the default repos back that came with the original installation? Thank you.

Code:
yum reinstall http://vault.centos.org/6.5/os/x86_64/Packages/centos-release-6-5.el6.centos.11.1.x86_64.rpm
That's for a 64-bit OS. For the 32-bit version:
Code:
yum reinstall http://vault.centos.org/6.5/os/i386/Packages/centos-release-6-5.el6.centos.11.1.i686.rpm
Once you get that done, do run "yum update" to bring your system up to the current release (6.6).

Much appreciated. When I paste that in the terminal I get the following output:

Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, refresh-packagekit, security

No package matched to remove: centos-release-0:6-5.el6.centos.11.1

This is my Centos-Base repo defn; you could try this
Code:
[base]
name=CentOS-$releasever - Base
mirrorlist=http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=$releasever&arch=$basearch&repo=os
#baseurl=http://mirror.centos.org/centos/$releasever/os/$basearch/
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-CentOS-6
priority=1


#released updates 
[updates]
name=CentOS-$releasever - Updates
mirrorlist=http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=$releasever&arch=$basearch&repo=updates
#baseurl=http://mirror.centos.org/centos/$releasever/updates/$basearch/
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-CentOS-6
priority=1

#additional packages that may be useful
[extras]
name=CentOS-$releasever - Extras
mirrorlist=http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=$releasever&arch=$basearch&repo=extras
#baseurl=http://mirror.centos.org/centos/$releasever/extras/$basearch/
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-CentOS-6
priority=1

#additional packages that extend functionality of existing packages
[centosplus]
name=CentOS-$releasever - Plus
mirrorlist=http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=$releasever&arch=$basearch&repo=centosplus
#baseurl=http://mirror.centos.org/centos/$releasever/centosplus/$basearch/
gpgcheck=1
enabled=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-CentOS-6
priority=1

#contrib - packages by Centos Users
[contrib]
name=CentOS-$releasever - Contrib
mirrorlist=http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=$releasever&arch=$basearch&repo=contrib

Then you are not running CentOS 6.5. If you haven't already recovered by using chrism01's suggestion, run "rpm -q centos-release". If it's "centos-release-6-6.el6", then you just need to reinstall that package:
Code:
yum reinstall http://mirror.centos.org/centos/6/os/x86_64/Packages/centos-release-6-6.el6.centos.12.2.x86_64.rpm
or
Code:
yum reinstall http://mirror.centos.org/centos/6/os/i386/Packages/centos-release-6-6.el6.centos.12.2.i686.rpm
