pythonToday, I think to upgrade my python version 2.6 to 2.7 on CentOS-6 because of some application requirement so I tried to search on Google How to upgrade python 2.6 to 2.7 on CentOS-6 but I haven’t found any easy way like RPM or YUM. The below is a step by step procedure for how to upgrade to Python 2.7 on CentOS 6.5.

Python-2.7]$which python

#To verify if the install succeeded
Python-2.7]$python -Vpython-12#Use UPPERCASE ‘V’ – not lower-case.
#Output will be “Python 2.7”
#Exit your current shell prompt and reopen if you are not able to view this output
#a new before checking the version.
