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

Install the FusionDirectory Repos

To easily install the latest version, you can install the fusion directory repos

Chose the repositories that goes with your centos version

CentOS 6 / RHEL 6

CentOS 7 / RHEL 7

Create 2 new repo file your favorite text editor.

  • One for fusiondirectory

  • One for fusiondirectory-extra

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
