Hello Friends

My lecturer asks me to install Linux version in a virtual environment and setup email & web server.I was able to install Centos 7 in vmware and install httpd and access default test page.Now i have 2 questions.

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

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