I have loaded my ISO files int /opt/iso   and configured mrepo.conf and /etc/mrepo.conf.d/centos6.3-64

but when I run mrepo -ugv  iso file is not getting mounted to /var/www/html

[root@localhost mrepo.conf.d]# cat  /etc/mrepo.conf
### Configuration file for mrepo

### The [main] section allows to override mrepo's default settings
### The mrepo-example.conf gives an overview of all the possible settings
[main]
srcdir = /opt/iso
wwwdir = /var/www/mrepo
confdir = /etc/mrepo.conf.d
arch = i386 x86_64

mailto = root@localhost
smtp-server = localhost

#rhnlogin = username:password

### Any other section is considered a definition for a distribution
### You can put distribution sections in /etc/mrepo.conf.d/
### Examples can be found in the documentation at:
### /usr/share/doc/mrepo-0.8.7/dists/.

[root@localhost mrepo.conf.d]# cat /etc/mrepo.conf.d/centos6.3-64
[Cents6.3-64]
name = CentOS $release ($arch)
release = 6
myrepo = file://var/www/mrepo
metadata = repomd repoview yum


[root@localhost mrepo.conf.d]# mrepo  -ugv

Your config has wwwdir = /var/www/mrepo but in your Q you ask about /var/www/html. Could this be the problem?

There are no error messages. Perhaps mrepo can't find anything to do. mrepo -ugvv may tell you more (extra "v" on the end of the command).

Sorry it was a typo. It should be /var/www/mrepo

Here is the output of -vvvv

It does not appear to read /etc/mrepo.conf.d/centos6.3-64. You might have to resort to using strace to see whether it accesses that directory at all and if so what further action it takes. Could there be a permissions problem?
And what is myrepo in the Centos file anyway? A typo for mrepo?

Thank you, I will look into it. I have a quick question. This mrepo program suppose to mount as loop device or we need to mount it?  I am confused about the mounting ...

Where is it mounting?

It'll be a loop device. It will mount on some empty directory which I expect mrepo will create.
