Installing CSS Tidy For WordPress W3 Total Cache Plugin

Installing CSSTidy is quite simple on a centos linux machine. All you have to do is to issue the following command.

If its successfully installed, it would really be that simple. However, if you can't find this option, it will be time to do some work.

Installing CSS Tidy alternative

Since the simple step wasn't there for you, we will have to try something manual. Fire up the below command,

rpm -ivh http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/epel/5/x86_64/csstidy-1.4-1.el5.x86_64.rpm

and see whether it went successful. If it does, csstidy is installed. If it doesn't try download it and rpm again.

wget http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/epel/5/x86_64/csstidy-1.4-1.el5.x86_64.rpm
rpm -ivh csstidy-1.4-1.el5.x86_64.rpm

If it still doesn't work, you should find it on your yum using the following command.

yum install -y csstidy.x86_64

since the rpm was added into your repo. Hope it works 🙂
