Edit the following file (the command will create it if it is not present):
sudo nano /etc/yum.repos.d/openathens.repo

Update or populate it with:

name = yum repository for athens rpms
baseurl =$releasever/la/2.2/$basearch
enabled = 1
gpgcheck = 0
failovermethod = priority

#Exclude libmemcached from this source
exclude = libmemcached 

Replacing 'username' and 'password' with the credentials you used to download the software.

If you are installing on your own server, you may also need to add the EPEL repository before installing.

Installing / updating to the latest version

Now that you have configured the repository you can check for and install the latest version.

If you are using the pre-built image (or are upgrading):

sudo yum update openathensla-admin

If you are installing on your own server:

sudo yum install openathensla-admin

In both cases you will need to enter a 'Y' to proceed when prompted.
