Well it was bound to happen. I'm moving from Fedora to CentOS. As it turns out the Fedora release/update cycle is too fast.

This section covers the setup of advanced linux servers using CentOS. What do I mean by advanced. Well I'm talking about servers setup for virtual hosting with a database backend. I am talking about servers that are scalable.
