List All Installed Packages with yum on CentOS 7

List All Installed Packages with yum on CentOS 7


In this short tutorial, we will show you, how to list all installed packages with yum on CentOS 7 . Yum is the default package manager used in CentOS, used to interact with both individual RPM package files and many repositories. This tutorial was written for CentOS 7, but the commands in this tutorial should work on any server with Redhat, CentOS, or Fedora installed on it.
In order to list all installed packages on a VPS with CentOS 7 installed on it, you can use the ‘yum list installed’ command line command. It will list all installed RPM packages on the server in case-sensitive alphabetical order. For example:

yum list installed

As you can see from the output, this command line command will show you a long list of all installed packages, including the package name, package version and the repository name from which the package was installed.
Or, use less at the end of this command:

yum list installed | less

It will allow you to view one screenful at a time.
In order to see all packages, both installed and available, you can use the following command:

yum list available

Also, you can use grep to filter the output and list specific packages only. For example, if you want to list all installed PHP packages, use the following command:

yum list installed | grep -i php
