I am a complete Linux newb. I admit my failures. But I figure I need to start someplace, so last week I installed CentOS on an extra machine here so I can learn something. (http://www.centos.org)
If you can answer any of these questions, much appriciated.
1) When I installed CentOS, it gave me options to have web publishing software, and MySQL. I assumed this would mean it would install Mysql and Apache for me, but I can't find it in the usr/local directory.
My question is: Does a fresh install of CentOS also include an install of Apache/MySQL/PHP? Where would it be if it isn't in the usr/local directory?
2) Since I cannot find Apache I assume it isnt installed, so I have downloaded it, but don't know how to get it from my PC machine to my CentOS machine to compile and install it? I was using the following tutorial on installing Apache/MySQL/PHP
My question is: How do I transfer files from my Windwos PC to my CentOS box?
3) Is there a more complete tutorial on installing Apache/MySQL/PHP that I haven't found?
4) After that, I will have questions on installing MySQL and PHP...
My goal is to learn how to get a website up and running, without using Cpanel.
