    Question Install CentOS like my hosting company does!

    Hi All,

    I'm planning to rent a Dedicated Server soon, but before I would like to deploy my application to a VMWare appliance on my local machine.

    The OS that i'm planning to use is CentOS 5.1

    Does anyone knows how the dedicated server's on hosting companies are customized or installed?

    I'm installing in on my machine, but there are many options to select.

    For example, I did not installed the GUI, just to mirror my a server setup.

    Any idea how is the best way to mirror a dedicated server installation, for learning purposes?

    Thanks!!!

    Yes, but I've tried and did not get a "minimal" setup option.
    You directly must select which applications are you going to install.

    Uncheck just about everything and you have a minimal install

    Go for a box which runs on 32 MB space running your webserver. That could be much minimal.

    This is ideal. If you do not have such a file, you can probably google one up. Absent the kickstart file, uncheck everything but base on the selection screens and you should be good to go.

    Good luck,
