On to the network settings. The default setting here is to configure the network interfaces with DHCP, but we are installing a server, so static IP addresses are not a bad idea... Click on the Edit button at the top right. In the window that pops up uncheck Configure using DHCP and give your network card a static IP address and netmask (in this tutorial I'm using the IP address and netmask for demonstration purposes) Uncheck Enable IPv6 support and enable Activate on boot:

Set the hostname manually, e.g., and enter a gateway (e.g. and two DNS servers (e.g. and

Choose your time zone:

Give root a password:

Now we select the software we want to install. Uncheck Office and Productivity and check Software Development and Web server instead. Do not select Fedora Extras - on my installation it caused the installer to stop! This seems to be a bug. Then check Customize now, then click on Next:

Now we must select the package groups we want to install.

If you are going to install ISPConfig you have to be careful on the MySQL password.  Do not put !@#$%^&*() type characters in it.  While it works fine when you log onto mysql at the prompt, ISPConfig prompts you for a password which it then passes into a script.  If you use these characters you can get a strange command-line substitution.

Stick with [A-Z][a-z][0-9] and you should be fine



If you're planning tpo install the ISPconfig support, you'll need to have the MySQL headers installed in the system prior to trying to install  that package. 

 To do so, while on the PACKAGE GROUPS INSTALL page, select SERVERS, then, from in that group, select MYSQL DATABASE, then click on the OPTIONAL PACKAGES button in the lower left corner of the page.  In the dialog that opens, check the box next to "mysql-devel".

Close the OPTIONAL dialog and continue as indicated in these instructions.

From: admin

...or just install mysql-devel, as shown on page 4:

yum install mysql mysql-devel mysql-server
