Centos 5 Error :- -bash: yum: command not found


Hi,

I have taken a centos dedicated server of linux.
I tried to install one game panel to it. Somehow it did not go though well and i m in some real problem.

When i try to use the command Yum it says

-bash: yum: command not found
It was working fine earlier.

Somebody has told me i need to go for complete os reinstall. But for that i have to pay 100 dollars to data center as its chargable.

Is their any way to fix it??

it is hard to say from here. Maybe your path is not ok, maybe yum is lost somehow, maybe you can simply restore it (if you can boot and log in and in general the host is working properly).

Have you tried /usr/bin/yum instead of just yum?
It could be possible that /usr/bin has been removed from the path.
You can check by typing echo $PATH
Or it could also be that yum package accidentally removed.
Check if the yum packages is installed or not.

rpm -qa | grep -i yum

Let's see if the rpm is installed.
If there is some kind of response try a "which yum".

If it's not installed, you can download it from the centos site. Then you can you can install the RPM via "rpm -Uvh <name of the rpm".

[root@HYD1008 /]# cd usr
[root@HYD1008 usr]# cd bin
[root@HYD1008 bin]# cd yum
-bash: cd: yum: No such file or directory
[root@HYD1008 bin]# yum
-bash: yum: command not found
[root@HYD1008 bin]# echo $path

[root@HYD1008 bin]# which yum
/usr/bin/which: no yum in (/opt/mono-1.9/bin:/usr/kerberos/sbin:/usr/kerberos/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/root/bin)
[root@HYD1008 bin]#

Yes, i removed yum by mistake.

You need following packages to install YUM software successfully -

yum
python-elementtree
python-iniparse
python-sqlite
rpm-python
python-urlgrabber
yum-metadata-parser
m2crypto

May be all the above packages already installed on your system.

Code:
# rpm -Uvh http://mirror.centos.org/centos/5/os/i386/CentOS/yum-3.2.8-9.el5.centos.1.noarch.rpm http://mirror.centos.org/centos/5/os/i386/CentOS/python-elementtree-1.2.6-5.i386.rpm http://mirror.centos.org/centos/5/os/i386/CentOS/python-iniparse-0.2.3-4.el5.noarch.rpm http://mirror.centos.org/centos/5/os/i386/CentOS/python-sqlite-1.1.7-1.2.1.i386.rpm http://mirror.centos.org/centos/5/os/i386/CentOS/rpm-python-4.4.2-48.el5.i386.rpm http://mirror.centos.org/centos/5/os/i386/CentOS/python-urlgrabber-3.1.0-2.noarch.rpm http://mirror.centos.org/centos/5/os/i386/CentOS/yum-metadata-parser-1.1.2-2.el5.i386.rpm http://mirror.centos.org/centos/5/os/i386/CentOS/m2crypto-0.16-6.el5.2.i386.rpm

Then you need to download the tar package of rpm and extract the package and compile and install that package.

Are you able to install all these packages using rpm -ivh <package-name> command? I think not because as you told that rpm package is also not installed on your machine, am I right?
