Quick Setup Guide for centos, mariadb, mongodb

To test installers, I used to bring up regularly vms through vagrant.

A good way to reliably install a machine with the same configuration is by scripting the install of software.

Here is an example of how to do this:

#!/usr/bin/env bash
#install php, mysql, apache, ssl, python, mysql python

function rhel-install-epel {
  pushd /tmp 2>/dev/null
  wget https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/epel-release-latest-7.noarch.rpm
  #ls *.rpm
  rpm -ivh epel-release-*rpm
  popd 2>/dev/null

function install-base {
yum install -y wget vim-enhanced gcc gcc-c++
yum -y install epel-release
yum install -y \

pip --upgrade pip
function install-mariadb {
  yum install -y mariadb mariadb-server MySQL-python
  pip install -r python-requirements.txt
  systemctl enable mariadb.service
  systemctl start mariadb.service
function install-mongodb {
  pip install python-pymongo
function install-apache {
  yum -y install httpd mod_ssl
  systemctl enable httpd.service
  #systemctl start httpd.service
function install-php {
  yum install -y php php-gd php-mbstring php-mysql
