For installing python releated packages we need to use pip. Hence installing pip in our server is our first task.
the package name for pip is “python-pip”. Hence the straight forward approach to install pip would be
apt-get install python-pip
But, if the source list is not updated properly , we will end up with older version of pip (in my case i got 1.5.3 however, 8.1.1 is the latest one). Hence to avoid this issue , we need to follow the approach given in wikipedia
i.e to download the package from internet via this url . Hence we use the curl command
Once get-pip.py gets downloaded. run the python file to install pip
Even beyond this, if we need to install pip package without internet .
Download the source from https://pypi.python.org/pypi/pip
extract the folder
tar -xvzf pip-8.1.1.tar.gz
Move inside the folder and install it
cd pip-8.1.1; python setup.py install
