worksheet for a a centos 6.0 setup?


Hello, i am pretty new to Linux and not quite good with that stuff. However, is this a good way to get started with a web server?

Code:
alias vi='mcedit' #dont ask...

yum install yum-priorities

useradd mouse
passwd mouse

wget http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/epel/6/x86_64/epel-release-6-5.noarch.rpm
rpm -Uvh epel-release-6-5.noarch.rpm

wget http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el6/en/x86_64/rpmforge/RPMS/rpmforge-release-0.5.2-2.el6.rf.x86_64.rpm
rpm -Uvh rpmforge-release-0.5.2-2.el6.rf.x86_64.rpm

wget http://rpms.famillecollet.com/enterprise/remi-release-6.rpm
rpm -Uvh remi-release-6.rpm

mcedit /etc/yum.repos.d/remi.repo

yum -y update

yum -y install dovecot postfix

yum -y install perl-Net-SSLeay

yum clean all
yum-complete-transaction
Any suggestions?

Hi Eckhard,

The best way to get started with a webserver on CentOS would be to install the Apache HTTPD runtime:

Code:
sudo yum install httpd
Consider a tutorial geared at installing a LAMP (Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP) server, such as this:

HTH,
Jameson

Update is just
Code:
yum update
Don't add other repos unless you NEED something that the Centos repos don't have. You can easily break your system.

you can VERY easily brake the system

rpmforge is 100%safe
BUT rpmforge-extra IS NOT SAFE
the *-extra brakes compatibility with red hat

so install and SET UP "yum-priorities" ( READ the documentation on it !!! )

remi ??? unknown i install firefox by hand

epel and EL should be fine for most cases but USE "yum-priorities"
