With the correct packages we can quickly setup a simple CentOS 7 server to run a full LAMP stack.
This will turn our Linux system into a web server capable of serving out dynamic content from a database back end.
We can configure storage reports with File Server Resource Manager (FSRM) in Windows Server 2016 to generate various useful reports. These reports allow us to get a high level overview of the file shares on the file server.
In this example we’ll show you how to configure storage reports in Windows Server 2016, however the steps are very similar to older versions of the Windows operating system.
This short guide will show you how to upgrade MariaDB 10.0 to 10.1 in CentOS 7 Linux. We’ll start by modifying the repository file and perform a ‘yum update’. This may fail to automatically update the MariaDB-server package, so we’ll show you how to manually use the mysql_upgrade script to complete the process.
By default a full installation of CentOS 7 will have the GNOME graphical user interface (GUI) installed and it will load up after system boot, however if we have installed CentOS without a GUI installed we can always install one later, or optionally we can install a different GUI.
This quick guide will cover how to install the MATE desktop environment in CentOS 7, which will provide a GUI for working with the Linux system. While I don’t suggest using a GUI on a production server, it’s a good option if you’re using CentOS as a desktop.
This WordPress based website loads fairly quickly, or at least I’d like to think so based on my testing. In this post I’m going to share some of the things that I’ve setup in order to get the fastest possible page loads from WordPress.
We’ll be covering general server configuration, Nginx web server configuration, WordPress plugin configuration, and finally use of content distribution networks.
