Installing QuickBooks on CentOS 7x


Hello All,
I am looking at using a CentOS 7 VPS to host my QuickBooks data file. I know it requires the implementation of their Linux Database Server Manager but what I am really hoping to find is a clear soup to nuts of how to install everything required to make this all work.

Is anybody here able to guide me in finding this?

Did you see this? As it was one of the very first hits I got from Google.

While from what I can see, it doesn't mention CentOS in particular; it does mention RHEL 7, therefore the same should also apply to CentOS 7.

Try that.

Thanks very much for responding. I did see that information however the fact is that with my being new to all of this my concern is based on what has been suggested to me by another person. The person who is "supposed" to be helping & guiding me through this gave me the impression that there are some other dependencies that need to be installed. Not having gotten any rresponse from them for about 3 weeks, I have opted to go the distance on my own.

Is it a case where all I need in addition to what is in the docs to which you have linked is to install/configure Samba and a software VPN for additional connection security?

When you want to have a mixed network that have both Windows and Linux machines, and you want Windows to do the user authentication for those Linux machines (among other things), you would use Samba.

A VPN would provide more security, but I'm not an expert on VPN's though.

In truth, you are being more open with information that the person who is "supposed" to be helping me. Apart from what you have added about Samba and the VPN, can you say if there are any other components that should be/need to be installed for this to work properly?

Not from what I can see in the link I gave you. I can only rely on what that link says - I didn't write the Quickbooks software myself. Samba for one is in the package repositories for CentOS 7, so it therefore should be a matter of installing that, along with the Quickbooks software, and then configuring both. This said, I can't say I'm an expert with Quickbooks.

You'll have to follow what it says in the link I gave you. It explains what the components of it are.

I thought Quickbooks had their own suypport departmennt, won't they help you?
Edit, ignore me, I'm not reading correctly.

Thanks for the help.

So far got the VPS set up with OS and Soft Ether as VPN and going to install Samba now. I found a guide for that on How To Forge which looks simple enough for my brain to follow and I am wondering if it is possible to setup Samba so that it can only share over the VPN?

Did some additional reading and found (http://http-download.intuit.com/http...ation_Tips.pdf) that covers installation on different Linux Distros. It also appears to give a little more instruction than the link previously provided.

In this document they speak of additional dependencies that need to be installed (Gamin - 0.1.7.7 or newer or Fam – 2.7.0 or newer, Glibc – 2.5-3 or newer, or Libc6 – 2.5-3 or newer, Libgcc – 4.2.1 or newer, Libstdc++ - 4.2.1 or newer). Can these be installed by a single library or package?
