Reddit: Looking for experienced CentOS user

Thursday 5th of March 2015 11:07:52 AM

-I'm willing to pay (send paypal funds / gift voucher) to somebody that can help me :) -contact me here or add my skype "live:rekkke" or email me ""

I'm going to be setting up a couple of servers with CentOS (6.5?) because I believe it is the best for what I am going to be doing.

I've tried doing it before but I always run into a lot of problems, that's why I'm looking for somebody that can give me some step-by-step instructions for the setup I need. Read on if you want to see what steps I'll need:

  1. Install the OS onto my server, via SSH (I have ssh program already) from Windows computer
  2. Install firefox/chrome
  3. Install vnc-server so I can view my sever via a VNC-viewer
  4. Install an up-to-date version of java 7 or 8 so I can run the program "Tribot" - when I was configuring my server before I installed Java 7 however when I tried to run this program it wouldn't let me open it with java, even though I installed it via root. I then tried to download and install Java, but I had nothing to open the installer with :/
  5. Install a desktop (any) to my server.

If anyone is willing to help me, I am willing to pay for this guide/information, my skype is "like:rekkke" and my email is "", thanks! :)

Wednesday 4th of March 2015 03:26:01 PM
Open source and crowdsourcing—uttering these words at a meeting of the United Nations before the year 2010 would have made you persona non grata. In fact, the fastest way to discredit yourself at any humanitarian meeting just five years ago was to suggest the use of open source software and crowdsourcing in disaster response. Then, a tragic earthquake occured in Haiti in 2010, and OpenStreetMap and Ushahidi were deployed in the aftermath.
