How To Install Yarn on Rocky Linux 9

Install Yarn on Rocky Linux 9

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Yarn on Rocky Linux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, Yarn (Yet Another Resource Navigator) is a package manager for JavaScript environments. It is an alternative to the NPM package manager and was developed by Facebook in collaboration with Google, Tilde, and Expo Dev. Yarn improves on many aspects of the standard NPM client. That is, although the functionality is similar, Yarn adds certain enhancements that make the process easier.

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 Laravel Package Manager on Rocky Linux. 9.


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Rocky Linux 9.
  • 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).
  • 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.
