Install Python Boto on CentOS 6

I’ll quickly take you through installing Python & Boto on CentOS 6 for use with Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Boto is an interface to access all of the Amazon Web Services via the Python programming language. Using Boto you can write some handy scripts to automate simple things like starting or stopping EC2 instances or taking regular snapshots of your servers..

All the syntax listed here is executed via the command line. Simply open a terminal window and you’re good to go

Installing Python and Python development libraries:

I install the python-devel package as you’ll find you may require them in the future when attempting to install additional Python packages.

We will use Python pip to manage additional packages:

Python pip isn’t available with the CentOS base yum repository. The EPEL yum repository will need to be enabled, this is achieved quickly by running the following command:
64bit run:

32bit run:

Installing the epel rpm will also automatically enable the EPEL repository so nothing more is needed to be done. If the URL I used in my example doesn’t work, it may be because a new version has been released. You can check for the latest EPEL release rpm here: http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/x86_64/repoview/epel-release.html
http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/i386/repoview/epel-release.html

easy_install is another popular tool to install and manage Python packages. Currently pip appears to be gaining more favour amongst Python users.

Finally we will install the Boto package via pip:

This process is pretty straight forward, pip will connect to the pypi.python.org web server, search for the package, download it, compile it if required and enable it in your environment.

To test that Boto has successfully installed into our environment:

If installed correctly you should simply get the output of the current Boto version installed.

    It can be used side-by-side with Boto in the same project, so it is easy to start using Boto3 in your existing projects as well as new projects.

    Some people, especially those running on busy daily schedules tend to use the pills to help maintain weight since they can not afford to follow all the diet programs. This is not advised. It is recommended that one seek advice from a professional in this field before using the pills. This can save one from many dangers associated with the misuse.

    The diet pills should always be taken whole. Some people tend to divide the pills to serve a longer period of time. This is not advised and can lead to ineffectiveness. If it is required that one takes a complete tablet, it means that a certain amount of the ingredients are required to achieve the desired goal. It is also recommended that one does not crush the pill and dissolve it in beverages. Chemicals found in beverages have the potential of neutralizing the desired nutrients in the pill thereby leading to ineffectiveness. The best way to take the tablets is swallowing them whole with a glass of water.

    The diet pills speed up the metabolic processes. This is the key factor that leads to the burning of all the fats in the body. This means that one passes out lots of urine, which subsequently leads to dehydration. It is imperative that the user take lots of water round the clock. This will help curb dehydration, which can lead to health problems. In addition to that, water offers the required medium for the function of the nutrients and elimination of the fats.

    When buying the review of diet pills, it is imperative that one gets the most recommended dose. People tend to compromise the quality and effectiveness of the tablets due to the variation in cost. The low priced pills depict poor quality, which means their effectiveness is not reliable. Some have also been found to cause health problems. The dose should also be taken as recommended. Over dose will not speed up the process but rather lead to complication. This will increase risk of side effects. If the taking of the pill is forgotten, do not take more to compensate for the lost time.

    The diet plan enclosed with the diet pills has also to be followed. According to the requirements, the termination of the diet must be done even with no results. This means your body is irresponsive.
