How To Install Htop on Fedora 37

Install Htop on Fedora 37

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Htop on Fedora 37. For those of you who didn’t know, Htop is a popular process monitoring tool for Linux systems. It provides real-time information about system resource usage and process management such as information about CPU usage, memory usage, and more, making it a valuable tool for system administrators and users alike.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the Htop monitoring and managing processes on a Fedora 37.


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Fedora 37.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
  • An active internet connection. You’ll need an internet connection to download the necessary packages and dependencies for Htop.
  • A non-root sudo user or access to the root user. We recommend acting as a non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.
