HTTP installation server

I was doing some installs and running through the different types nfs, web, and ftp.

Looks to be if you have to install apache then present it you are easily going to lose a little while.

What would be the fastest strategy to install apache and present this.

create a local cd-rom repo and then install httpd or just play the dependancy game as fast as you can?

    Depending on the distru - the quickest way would be using yum / apt to download the package ... Problem with that - you cannot customize it.

    Second quickest - download source and install ..

    I did a long guide a while back

    Are you trying to set up a server that will allow you to serve the installation repository or serve web pages?

    sorry lemme clarify

    I was practicing my network installations...I was thinking on the test they most likely won't let you use the external yum repo

    So the installation repository...
    if they won't let you access the external repo would the fastest way be to create the cd repo.


    If any one that has taken the test knows whether you have external repo access or not that input would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    OK i believe I have thought of the most efficient method to solve this problem if no external repositories are available

    They say on the installation that you most likely will have to complete a network installation which means your going to have to copy the disk somewhere. If you have to do an apache install or ftp install my suggestion would be this.

    Start your copy to directory you need:
    cp /mnt/cdrom/. /inst
    mkdir /var/repo/
    ln -s /mnt/cdrom/Server /var/repo/1
    rpm -ivh /var/repo/1/createrepo*
    createrepo /var/repo
    vi /etc/yum.repos.d/iso.repo
    [ISO REPO]
    gpgcheck=0
    enabled=1
    baseurl:file/var/repo
    yum install httpd
    ln -s /inst /var/html/www/inst

    on the test they will probably give you a local repository so you just need to set up yum repo.

    Exactly,

    you will have to install the os from NFS, FTP or HTTP

    and then they will probably ask you to setup an HTTP server (with mild customizations).

    I can't say for certain since I have not taken the test.
    encrypt the encryption, never mind my brain hurts.

    And you are probably not allowed to say anyway :p
