Time for a rookie mistake

As with all these learning things we do in life it is time for a rookie mistake to be made and I have made it. Following on from my Starting from scratch with CentOS 6 post I discovered today what can only be called a complete and utter fail in thinking on my latest VPS. That fail of thinking was…

I DID NOT REMEMBER TO SET THE TIMEZONE

Thankfully this wasn’t a difficult mistake to rectify and after a couple of seconds on google I stumbled upon how2centOS who very simply explain the process required. So now my updated starting from scratch commands are:

yum install http://www.mirrorservice.org/sites/dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/i386/epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm -y
yum clean all -y
yum update -y
yum install nano -y
ln -sf /usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/London /etc/localtime

I’ll just have to keep reminding myself that if I want to get good I’ll have to make the rookie mistakes to start with!
