Installing Dependencies

FusionDirectory requires both the EPEL repository and the REMI repository for PHP 7.1

  • To install epel
yum install
  • To install remi repository
yum install

yum install yum-utils
  • To enable Remi repo an PHP 7.1
yum-config-manager --enable remi-php71
yum-config-manager --enable remi
yum update

Install the FusionDirectory Repos

Chose the repositories that goes with your centos version

CentOS 7 / RHEL 7

If you bought a subscription you can configure the subscription repositories

RPM Repository

Install FusionDirectory

You can then install FusionDirectory by running:

yum install -y fusiondirectory
yum install -y fusiondirectory-selinux fusiondirectory-schema schema2ldif


If you use SELinux (same in permissive), you must install fusiondirectory-selinux !

FusionDirectory Schema Setup

Now that we have FusionDirectory installed, we need to install the FusionDirectory schemas into our LDAP database.

We can easily do this by running:

fusiondirectory-insert-schema -i /etc/openldap/schema/cosine.schema
fusiondirectory-insert-schema -i /etc/openldap/schema/inetorgperson.schema
fusiondirectory-insert-schema -i /etc/openldap/schema/nis.schema

Now we just need to restart apache:

systemctl restart httpd

You should see the FusionDirectory setup page come up by going to:
