Install CentOS 5.3 in text mode without any server application options.

Update and harden CentOS 5.3

Applications you need to install after server installation.

yum install httpd
yum install php
yum install php-mysql
yum install mysql-server

Startup MySQL Server and set password

/etc/init.d/mysqld start
/usr/bin/mysqladmin -u root password 'newpassword'
chkconfig mysqld on (So when the server reboots MySQL will startup with Server)

Download GLPI and copy to server

Download GLPI (Version I used glpi-0.72.21.tar.gz)

Once downloaded copy to server and extract tar.gz file.

tar -zxvf glpi-0.72.21.tar.gz

If this server is only for GLPI then copy to the root of Apache.

rm -rf /var/www/html
mv glpi /var/www/
cd /var/www
mv glpi html
chown -R apache:apache html

Edit php.ini and change memory_limit

vi /etc/php.ini
Find memory_limit and change to at least 64m

JSON is needed for GLPI

yum install php php-pear php-devel
yum install gcc make
cd /root/
pecl download json
pear install json-1.2.1.tgz
vi /etc/php.d/json.ini
; php-json package - http://pecl.php.net/package/json
extension=json.so

/etc/init.d/httpd start

php -r 'var_dump(function_exists("json_encode"));'
Everything is good if you get this answer: bool(true)

Start and Stopping Apache

/etc/init.d/httpd start

/etc/init.d/httpd stop
