    How to Install Go on CentOS 7

    Golang Known as "GO" is a opensource Programming language created by Google. Many popular applications, including Kubernetes and Docker are written in GO. 


    Download the Tarball:

    Check the official GO page to Download latest version. Current version is 1.14. You can use wget to download the tarball.

    wget https://dl.google.com/go/go1.14.3.linux-amd64.tar.gz

    [root@elasticsearchserver ~]# wget https://dl.google.com/go/go1.14.3.linux-amd64.tar.gz

    Resolving dl.google.com (dl.google.com)..., 2404:6800:4009:80a::200e

    Extract the tarball:

    Use the tar command to extract the tarball to the "/usr/local" directory:

    [root@elasticsearchserver ~]# tar -C /usr/local -xzf go1.14.3.linux-amd64.tar.gz

    Set Go Path Variable:

    Now we need to path for Go executable binaries. We can do this by appending the following line to the /etc/profile file (for a system-wide installation) or to the $HOME/.bash_profile file (for a current user installation):

    export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/go/bin

    Save the file, and load the new PATH environment variable into the current shell session with the following command:

    source ~/.bash_profile

    Test GO is installed properly:

    [root@elasticsearchserver ~]# go version
    go version go1.14.3 linux/amd64
    [root@elasticsearchserver ~]#
