The simple one line command below will enable the EPEL repository on CentOS 7
rpm -Uvh http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/7/x86_64/e/epel-release-7-2.noarch.rpm
Once ran you will see confirmation that it has been installed successfully, that’s it!
- You can find out more about the EPEL repository here
- If you don’t already have a server, I’d strongly recommend starting with DigitalOcean
Recently I created a script that uses the Bad Bots database where a list of bad bots is retrieved and then parsed into iptable firewall rules to prevent further access from known bad hosts.
More information can be found at GitHub here.
The following commands can be used to install Webmin 1.610 on CentOS 5.8. Make sure you’re logged in as root and then follow the steps below.
Select a temporary directory to save the download to. We will only use the downloaded file once so it’s pointless keeping it.. free up space and put it in /tmp!
Begin the download of Webmin using wget:
Install Webmin by unpacking the archive:
rpm -Uvh webmin-1.610-1.noarch.rpm
Done! You can now login to your fresh installation of Webmin by heading to http://hostname-or-ipaddress:10000 using the root username and password.
- If you don’t have a server to try this on I’d recommend DigitalOcean hands down – virtual servers start from $5 a month
