  1. hi, i’m installing CentOS 6.5 webserver, afer the install it restart and them he ask me for user and password, what i do to go to the graphic again? what user pass it asks?
    the only link (http://dev-random.net/how-to-install-a-centos-6-5-64bit-server/) that have something like that don’t tells how to start the system

    • Hi Marduk6666,

      So you are installing web server and want desktop? If this machine is coming only testing and developing use, then it’s totally okay, but if you try to setup real web server, then you shouldn’t install any gui or desktop.

      Did you selected any desktop packages on installation?

      It’s asking your username and password, example for root user:

      Or your normal username, like:

  2. Ty JR,

    I saw that for web server i can have the gui/desktop but i’m a newbie on linux so i will need the desktop so it can be more easy for me, now i did install the desktop with web server files so i will try to see if i can get it running

    As for the user/pass yes i did yty the root data and is that

  3. I had the exact me problem you did, but with a different package, it seems that the mirror I chose for my install didn’t have the firefox package the installer wanted and in the end I had no way of skipping and installing firefox later.

    It was not a network issue, just the repo not having that package, really annoying not being having an option to skip or specify an alternate location for the missing file.

    I recommend everyone just go with a minimum install.

  4. I had the same annoying issue with the missing firefox package. You have to start from the beginning as you cannot skip. The issue seems to be with the sonic.net mirrors. If you use the centos.org mirror the package can be found.
