I want to install packages automatically by running a script

I can write

 yum install php

but I want it to install another package once installation of the php package is completed

Is there any solution to make it automatic?

I have around 20packages which are to be downloaded from remi repository

You mean yum doesn't accept yum install <package> <package> <package>? –  mkaito Aug 27 '12 at 13:04

Write your script named installer.sh as:

yum -y install php
yum -y install <another_package>
yum -y install <yet_another_package>

Then run it $ bash installer.sh
