Hello, I'm trying to install s3tools on my vps ( WHM 11.38.1 build 15 / CENTOS 6.4 x86_64 )

In the main page of Amazon S3 tools: Package repositories there are some simple instructions, so after some reading I started in this way:

Code:
cd /etc/yum.repos.d
wget http://s3tools.org/repo/RHEL_6/s3tools.repo
yum install s3cmd
But I have this error:
yum install s3cmd
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, presto, priorities, security
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
6 packages excluded due to repository priority protections

You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
Can someone please help?

Hello :)

I do not recommend changing the version of Python on your system. You may want to consider installing the package from source. EX:

Code:
cd /root
wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/s3tools/files/s3cmd/1.5.0-alpha3/s3cmd-1.5.0-alpha3.tar.gz/download
tar -zxvf s3cmd-1.5.0-alpha3.tar.gz
cd s3cmd-1.5.0-alpha3
python ./setup.py install
python
 >>> import S3
Note that the download location and directory path depend on the version you decide to install.

Thank you.

Hello, thanks for your reply.
Today I've tried again with yum install s3cmd and everything worked:); I didn't do nothing on the vps ( except for a scripts/upcp ), so may be that Cpanel or amazon have just solved this problem.
