Installing on Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Fedora, CentOS and similar

These instructions apply to any RPM-based distribution with systemd.

RPM binary packages exist to simplify the installation of Yggdrasil. These will also work on any other RPM-based distribution.

Install RPM package from COPR repository

There’s a Fedora COPR repository available, which provides recent versions of Yggdrasil - only for Fedora!


Installation on Fedora is easy as:

dnf copr enable rany/yggdrasil
dnf install yggdrasil

… and you’re ready to go!

Visit our Builds page and download the relevant .rpm file, then install it on your system:

sudo groupadd --system yggdrasil
sudo rpm -i yggdrasil...rpm

Configuration will be generated automatically into /etc/yggdrasil.conf when the package is installed, and the Yggdrasil service will automatically be installed into systemd and started.

Please note: By using this installation method, you won’t receive (security-/) updates for Yggdrasil!

Making configuration changes

Modify the /etc/yggdrasil.conf file and then either reload the config:

systemctl reload yggdrasil

… or restart the Yggdrasil daemon altogether:

systemctl restart yggdrasil

After installation

Read the Linux platform page page for further information about Linux platform support.
