    I have a new server I was allowed to put in my friends rack in a data center. The problem is that he pre-installed CentOS for me, and then said ... go to it. He didn't put on LAMP for me, and is too busy to offer any help.

    Here is my version:
    Linux my.localhost.org 2.6.18-53.1.14.el5 #1 SMP Wed Mar 5 11:36:49 EST 2008 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

    My needs are very simple. I want to run two websites on the server. A drupal site & a Word Press site, with the option for more if I need it. Pretty simple.

    However, I tried following the Perfect Server tutorial, and totally got lost. Since I only have shell access to it, I don't have the GUI.

    Can anyone point me to some tutorials via Command line, or explain to me what I need to do to get this up and running, and in what order you would do it in? Once I have it running, I think I can get him to help me with the security (as it's on his network!).

    So far I have used YUM and installed Apache, mySQL, and PHP. However, configuring them, I am not sure of the next set of steps, as far as setting up the virtual hosts and then getting it up and on the net. Once I get this going, I know how to configure and install my drupal and WordPress installs.

    Frustrating being a newb!

    The perfect server tutorial is for the command line, you just have to skip the first installations steps, the ones with screenshots from the installer.
