Base Install of CentOS 6.4
Here are the steps I use to install CentOS 6.4 to get to a base load.
Configure a gateway for our static IP address: vi /etc/sysconfig/network
Add some DNS resolution as well: vi /etc/resolv.conf
Restart networking to commit our changes: service network restart
Let’s drop the firewall: service iptables save | service iptables stop | chkconfig iptables off
Let’s relax selinux: vi /etc/sysconfig/selinux
Restart the system to commit the changes: shutdown –r now
Add the EPEL repository: rpm -Uvh http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/i386/epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm
Update the system: yum update
And there you have it. A base install of CentOS 6.4
