Yesterday I installed yet another linux server and made screenshots for you.
Your language may vary on the dialogs, but the buttons should be in same place.
New VM in VMWare and I drop the CentOS 7 iso on it:
now I confirm it's CentOS 7 64-bit:
I uncheck easy installation and continue:
Not sure what BIOS, so I keep default:
Now I click done button:
Or you click customize button there in the middle and change CPU, RAM or disk space.
Now we boot it and press return for first menu entry:
may take a while:
welcome and pick a language:
this screen take a few seconds till all options are initialized automatically. We click the software button on the right to choose:
and here we pick server with GUI as I like to have a desktop on a VM:
and I pick the disk as destination:
and I enable the ethernet connection for VMware with the on/off toggle on the right:
we are online:
all set, so click install button:
now I can set passwords for root and create an user:
User setup done:
you see message it's installing in the bottom?
Done. So press restart button on bottom right:
somewhere we have to agree to license agreement:
little checkbox on the bottom:
now click button on bottom right to quit configuration
Now login first time:
with my secret password
Let's pick a language again
and a keyboard:
we turn off location as it doesn't make sense for a VM:
Now we can click skip button on top right:
This is desktop. We downloaded FileMaker Sever zip
unpacked and not going to Terminal, You can open a terminal with contextual menu. Just click on the desktop with right mouse button and pick terminal from menu. We cd in the folder and list files:
We run the sudo yum install command:
May ask for password and then may wait for lock on package database. This is blocked as long as some other background service looks to update packages.
Do I want to install? Yes, please.
It asks to pick a GPG key:
Agree to FileMaker license:
and 0 for a normal server:
Next user name and password:
and a PIN:
Waits for connection:
We can restart the server. Then double click the icon on the desktop to go to admin console.
We enter our secret admin/admin password:
Check the SSL certificate to use:
For a throw-away test server this is fine:
Now you can enable plugins in connectors settings tab and copy the MBS plugin in the right folder or use the script based installation.
