1)- How to setup manual IP and access web server test page ? (previously i was able to access test page only using DHCP assigned IP)

2)- In this tutorial video, at the beginning this guy install software using 'cd rom'. => https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n1vBb5fl5Xc

There's an /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Media.repo file that can be used to install from local media. Just mount it on one of the directories mentioned in that file (or add your own) and then yum --disablerepo=\* --enablerepo=c7-media install $thing
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!

CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.

The regular DVD (4.5GB) will do the trick.
