Ok, I just finished my Perfect Setup
64bit install on CentOS 5. Most everything is the same as the 32bit HowTo but, I had a few minor things I wanted to highlight while this is fresh in my memory:
Step 10 MySQL (5.0)
When you do this:
yum install mysql mysql-devel mysql-server
It installs the 32bit AND
64bit mysql and mysql-devel packages.
That could be a problem so I removed
mysql.i386 and mysql-devel.i386. Now I only have the 64bit packages installed as shown below:
Step 11 Postfix With SMTP-AUTH And TLS
mysql.x86_64 5.0.22-184.108.40.206 installed
mysql-devel.x86_64 5.0.22-220.127.116.11 installed
mysql-server.x86_64 5.0.22-18.104.22.168 installed
mysql.i386 5.0.22-22.214.171.124 updates
mysql-devel.i386 5.0.22-126.96.36.199 updates
When you telnet into localhost 25 and do "ehlo localhost" the HowTo says to look for
250-AUTH LOGIN PLAIN
...but what you actually get is
Step 13 ProFTPd
250-AUTH PLAIN LOGIN
ProFTPd is compiled from source in the HowTo.
Many of us prefer to use yum so we can get updates easier.
The rpmforge repository has ProFTPd available via yum if you add their repository. More info here:
Then all you have to do is:
yum install proftpd
will give you:
proftpd.x86_64 1.3.1-1.el5.rf rpmforge
It installs as /usr/sbin/proftpd by default so no symlink is needed.
...now it's on to my ISPConfig install
