Cool Centos 6.5

Good Day

I have installed Centos 6.5 on a live server since I am new to Linux I installed the minimum package but would like to upgrade to the full package without rebuilding the server is this possible.
Please advise on how to do this.

Kind Regards
Anwar Khan

Hi Anwar,

Did you try to search on google for "update centos minimal to full?" There are several very good hits. Give that a try and then ask any specific questions that might arise.

Assuming you have the necessary repos, you can simply yum install the stuff you want. It will be a lot leaner and meaner instead of installing a full package which will most likely include stuff that you not even use.

So like for a LAMP stack you could do

yum install httpd php mysql mysql-server
