It has been a very long time since my last post. This one was inspired by the lack of fully documented installs online, outlining each and every step, with a visual, for those who learn using images.
I have also included the ever-populer oxidized in this guide, as this for me personally, was really tricky to get operational.
I initially built this for my employer, and have now built it at home to monitor my homelab.
Something to note, is that it is incredibly easy to mess things up, and without a decent amount of knowledge around Linux systems, can make it very difficult to roll back, so I recommend using some form of snapshotting technology, this should help you quickly revert if you need to.
I have built this in a vSphere 7.0 environment on a ESXi 7.0 host.
Install Required Packages
sudo yum install -y epel-release yum-utils
sudo yum localinstall -y http://rpms.remirepo.net/enterprise/remi-release-7.rpm
sudo yum-config-manager --enable remi-php73
Add the MariaDB10 Repository
sudo vi /etc/yum.repos.d/MariaDB10.repo
Add the following information and save the file:
# MariaDB 10.5 CentOS repository list - created 2021-04-26 19:41 UTC # http://downloads.mariadb.org/mariadb/repositories/ [mariadb] name = MariaDB baseurl = http://yum.mariadb.org/10.5/centos7-amd64 gpgkey=https://yum.mariadb.org/RPM-GPG-KEY-MariaDB gpgcheck=1
