Hi,

Can anyone give me the detailed steps about how can I install/set-up/configure my CentOS 6.0 with the following services:

1. Remote shell
2. FTP service allowing non-anonymous access
3. Web service(s) with CGI support
4. Samba Server
5. Password protected web pages

Kindly provide me the step-by-step information if possible as I am very new to linux.

Thanks

Remote Shell - Use ssh (service sshd start; chkconfig sshd on)
FTP service - Use Vsftpd (service vsftpd start; chkconfig vsftpd on)
Web service - Use httpd (service httpd start; chkconfig httpd on)
Samba - You need to setup a share so that samba exports it.
vi /etc/samba/smb.conf
[share name]
path = /home/my_path ;just an example
Password protected web pages need to setup in httpd; you can create a file like .htpasswd under /var/www/html and add users to it like
htpasswd -cm username password ;to create the htpasswd file and add username
htpasswd -m username2 password2 ; to add username2 to htpasswd file

There are lot more steps but these are just a start..

The first think I would recommend is doing
# yum update
which should take your server to v6.2 instead of 6.0.

It seems like you are trying to setup a Lab environment for RHCE/RHCSA.

Refer my site, I have posted blogs related to what do you want.
