Install HTOP on CentOS-8

You don't have an HTOP on your CentOS-8 operating system and would like to install the package? Then you are right here!

Normally the "HTOP-Package" should already be preinstalled on CentOS-8, but it could happen (e.g. by upgrading from CentOS-7 to CentOS-8) that this is not the case.

In order to be able to install HTOP successfully, you must first install the "EPEL repository":

dnf install


After the successful installation you need to update the system:


dnf update


Now you can easily install HTOP on your CentOS-8 system:

dnf install htop

Now you can easily run HTOP on your system:
