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! :)
