Redhat 9 Questions


I am attempting to build a server (web, email, mysql, php, perl, ftp, telnet) using redhat 9. Only thing is it's not working. When I choose the server install and then select the individual packages option to add things I want (php, mysql) and get rid of things I don't want or need (python, fortran) the software install but I can't seem to connect to the box with a browser, ftp, telnet, or ping.

What I'm after is a lean, mean serving machine with only the stuff I want/need on it.

Is there a tutorial somewhere on doing this? I've used google but found nothing on redhat 9 of value.

Thanks in advance.

Make sure your firewall is allowing you through. While you are setting up the server turn off your firewall....

service iptables stop
chkconfig iptables off (this will stop iptables from starting on boot)

and obviously make sure the services you are trying to connect to are started, using

service <the service> start

Good luck.


PS. The reason some things are getting installed when you don't select them is most likely Red Hat resolving the dependencies on the stuff you are installing.
