1. Log into your Linux server via SSH

2. requests can be installed using pip

3. Run the command ‘pip3 install requests’

4. Import requests to confirm it is installed correctly

ModuleNotFoundError No module named requests


First check the version of Python installed on your server.

[root@centos /]# python3 -V
Python 3.6.8

The below command checks whether python-pip package is installed or not :

[root@centos /]# rpm -qa | grep -i pip


[root@centos /]# pip3 -V
pip 21.3.1

Run the command ‘yum install python-pip’ OR ‘yum install python3-pip’ to install python-pip package on your CentOS server.

pip is the package installer for Python. To install requests using pip:

# pip3 install requests

Import requests to make sure it is installed correctly.

[root@centos /]# python3
Python 3.6.8 (default, Nov 21 2019, 19:31:34)
[GCC 8.3.1 20190507 (Red Hat 8.3.1-4)] on linux
Type “help”, “copyright”, “credits” or “license” for more information.
>>> import requests

OR you can run ‘pip3 freeze | grep -i requests’ to confirm

[root@centos /]# pip3 freeze | grep -i requests

Follow the below steps if you want to install a specific version of requests

Example :

#pip3 install requests==2.25.1

The above command will install requests version 2.25.1.
