Hi, first of all i want to thank you all that do this help. Without this i cold never put my own webserver. Now my question. I know when i have to install some software, they recommend a “fresh” install of CentOS, but my provider (we have server via internet and webmin) every fresh install says that i need to pay like 50$ ( alittle expensive for me). Im live i Costa RIca and here internet sucks thats why i use panama server. Now my question is: theres any form to restore to “default” a CentOS server? like windows 8
or like norton goback? i searh a lot via google but not sure if theres no way or i dont know how to search it. Sorry for my bad english. Hope could help me this time

    First, who is this they who recommend a “fresh” install of CentOS, and what’s the software? There’s absolutely no reason I know of, nor am I
    aware of any software, that requires you to do a complete new install of the O/S (other than, maybe, for WinDoze…).

    In short, I think a) they’re full of it; b) they have no idea what they’re talking about, and don’t know *Nix, or c) just what is it that’s *in* that software?

    Thinking about it, the first thing that comes to mind is that iptables is set to leave your box wide open…..


  • Why would you have to reinstall CentOS so often that it becomes a burden like that?

    Unlike some other Linux distributions like Fedora or Ubuntu, CentOS is intended to be a long term installation; you set it up once and run it for several years..

  • I would pretty much ignore any such ‘fresh install’ requirement, and just figure out how to integrate this new software with what you have, if it even interacts at all.

    such ‘requirements’ are most often born from lazy documentation.
