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.
How can we find where the default configuration files for the httpd package in CentOS are located?
By using the RPM command we can query a package to find all of its associated configuration files. Failing that we can use the find command to search the file system for these files, as we will see here.
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’.

There are many different supported versions of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL)/CentOS Linux available for use, so which version of CentOS/RHEL Linux should you be using?
Here we take a look at the differences between the different versions of CentOS and compare them to help you decide on the best version to use.

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.
