[ic] Operating System Choice - RH 6.2 or 7.0
Wed, 14 Mar 2001 15:15:27 -0700
I have interchange on RedHat 7.0 servers. Both were fresh installs. I
wanted to keep the sites in the /home partition, so I made a symbolic
link from /var/www/domain to /home/domain. Works fine so far. I also had
problems installing the RPM but the tar file worked fine.
