In this blog post, I will show you how to install Terraform on a Linux CentOS operating system.
Terraform is an open source multi cloud Infrastructure as a Code (IaC) tool.
Using Terraform we can deploy, modify and delete workloads in Azure, AWS and GCP.
The key benefit of Terraform is automation and reusability of code to provision and de-provision resources.
Before installing Terraform we need to check which paths are configured on our server.

Note down one the path that you are going to install Terraform.
Placing Terraform in a directory or location that is not in the PATH will result in Terraform not working.
