How do I install a full version of CentOS 7?

Linode Staff

Is it possible to get a full infrastructure version of CentOS 7 as I have the Minimal version installed?

From what I’ve found, you can install & upgrade packages within CentOS 7 using the yum groupinstall command. This allows you to install multiple packages with a single command.

To upgrade from Minimal installation to Basic:

yum groupinstall "Base"

To list all the installed & available groups

yum grouplist

While testing this, I found ‘Infrastructure Server’ under the Available Environment Groups after running yum grouplist and installed the Infrastructure Server with yum groupinstall "Infrastructure Server"
