I just set up a  cloud server per your guide (actually did it twice for 
practice) - what a great way to test various interchange settings on the 
different platforms!

Used CentOS 5.4


I had to compile in make, since perl complained when it wasn't available 
(#which make), suggested change to this line:

sudo yum -y install gcc gdbm-devel openssl-devel tk-devel gd-devel 
expat-devel make

                + Uncomment line 265 and change to your own domain name

ServerName hostname at my.domain.com:80

--- should be www.mysite.com:80


I installed Mysql instead of Pg

Install Mysql Database

$sudo yum -y install mysql mysql-server mysql-devel

$sudo /sbin/chkconfig mysqld on
$sudo /sbin/service mysqld start

when doing the CPAN section:
>install DBD::mysql

don't forget to secure your mysql at some point
$sudo /usr/bin/mysql_secure_installation

I had to manually create the test database table in Mysql
>create database test_mysite

Then interchange started without an error, and created the tables...

best regards,
