The Perfect Server - OpenSUSE 11.2 x86_64 [ISPConfig 2] - Page 2

Click on Edit partition setup... to change the proposed partitions. As this is a server setup, we need a large /srv partition instead of the /home partition:

Select /dev/sda3 and click on Edit...:

Change the Mount Point to /srv and click on Finish:

Click on Accept:

The resulting setup should look like this. Click on Next:

Now I create a user named administrator. You may use any username you like. Make sure that you disable the Automatic Login checkbox for this user. The password that you enter here will be used as the root password:

The installer shows an overview of the selected install options. Scroll down to the Firewall and SSH section and enable SSH...

... and then disable the firewall (ISPConfig 3 comes with its own firewall):

Click on Install to start the installation process:

Confirm that you want to start the installation:

The installer formats the hard disk, installs the software packages and prepares the system configuration for the first boot:

After the basic installation is finished, the system will do an automatic reboot:

The automatic configuration starts right after the system has rebooted:

Now log in with the username root and the password that you selected during the installation.

Hey Falko,

I read this at today.

Starting with openSUSE 11.2, a live upgrade from the prior version of openSUSE 11.1 is officially supported. This allows one to perform a complete operating system update in place, without reloading everything from scratch. For versions prior to 11.2 see Upgrade/Unsupported.

Does this mean that your future how-to's for Opensuse Perfect Server will demonstrate the upgrade path?  Thanks.

Before using:

 server1 # mysql_secure_installation

Please go to root and then make secure installation of mySQL or in openSUSE will give an error:

 server1 # cd / server1
 server1 # mysql_secure_installation
