Hi All,

I'm fairly new to Linux. Could somebody please tell me how to install FFS on CentOS 7?

All the instructions I found are for Ubuntu or Mint.

Thank You!

I publish a third-party build on a COPR (COmmunity PRojects) hosted by the Fedora Project.
Instructions adapted from my blog post: https://bgstack15.wordpress.com/2019/03/02/freefilesync-10-9-on-centos-7/
Save down the two repository definition files:
curl https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/bgstack15/stackrpms/repo/epel-7/bgstack15-stackrpms-epel-7.repo | sudo tee -a /etc/yum.repos.d/bgstack15-stackrpms-epel-7.repo
curl https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/bgstack15/FreeFileSync/repo/epel-7/bgstack15-FreeFileSync-epel-7.repo | sudo tee -a /etc/yum.repos.d/bgstack15-FreeFileSync-epel-7.repo
And then install freefilesync. It will need some dependencies from the second repo you installed above.
yum install freefilesync
Note: none of this is official. That's just me, a random dude, who builds it for CentOS 7 for himself and shares with others. You can always download the official version.
