CSIA 430 – Linux Administration: Centos References

Centos, like most Linux distributions, has plenty of support on the Internet. If you need help with certain tasks you can find hundreds of web sites with hints, tutorials and guides. And there are even more if you consider that you can usually use the Red Hat references as well. But, this is one of those situations where having more sites doesn’t necessarily improve your situation. That is, even though there are hundreds of Centos sites, many of these aren’t very helpful as they might be aimed at different versions, or may be poorly organized and hard to use, or may contain erroneous information and mistakes. To help you out, and really to help myself, here are a few of the sites that I’ve come to rely on for correct information:

  • Server-World Web Site – Centos 7.– I love this site as it has concise and mostly correct instructions for doing almost everything in Centos. It’s original language isn’t English, so some of the wording is a little goofy; but it’s the first place I go when I need help doing something new. Plus, it has the same information for several other distributions and versions of Centos.
