The Redhat Enterprise Linux 6 image was built using the Minimal install feature to create a lean system with the minimum features and packages necessary to have a functioning RHEL server. The system was further customized in the following ways:

  • The firewalls (iptables and ip6tables) were disabled.
  • SELinux protections were disabled.
  • Postfix (version 2.6) replaces Sendmail as the default MTA.
  • The Apache httpd (version 2.2) server and mod_ssl module were installed.
  • The PHP (version 5.3) scripting language and corresponding Apache httpd module were installed.
  • The Perl (version 5.10) scripting language was installed
