    CentOs 6 Server linkup with Windows OS


    Hello All,

    I am using Windows platform for last 7 years now for some reasons i am switching my server platform to CentOS6 to which i am totally a newbie, i do not want to make my other machines in the network to be on CentOS they will run on Windows 7 OS.

    I have 10 users who are using Win7 for various PHP and other development work which I want to synchronies at one place (intranet) i.e. CentOS 6 server.

    I have installed CentOS 6 then Xammp over it, Samba and SWAT both.

    I am seeking a detailed response to my queries,
    How can I synchronize my development work to one machine i.e. CentOS 6?
    How the user accounts will be created and managed?
    What more tools I need to install and how, to make whole system work.

    I'll be very grateful to all the respective responders

    Regards,
    Sukh

    If you want to synchronize your development work, it sounds like you need a source code control system. There are several popular ones, the granddaddy of them all is CVS, but there are newer alternatives such as Subversion and the much more modern GIT. Google up these, but installing them is really easy with the package manager.

    User account control is straightforward - you'll set up user accounts for your users on the Linux server, then add mappings in the Samba config to match windows usernames with their Linux accounts.

    I second the use of subversion or git.

    Thanks Roxoff for the points

    But if you can please detail the points as i already said that i am a newbie and don't have much experience in the same.

    Please give me the detail information and procedures so that it can work for me.

    This should get you started with git
    Git Community Book

    As roxoff wrote, there are already a lot of howtos for both git and svn.
    Just google them and/or read the documentation.

    Just give it a go - you'll be setting this up in a non-live environment first, wont you? There are already plenty of guides around that can explain things much better than we can in a small forum post. If you have complications or if there are things you don't understand, then ask the questions here. Answering direct questions is much easier for us than explaining how to do big tasks.
