I am trying to setup a web map server on a CentOS 6.2 virtual machine for development. I have never used Linux or web mapping frameworks, but I am trying to do this work as low cost as possible. So far, I am having some difficulty determining how to install and configure all the packages I need.
Here are the packages I want to install:
Apache Web Server Apache Tomcat? - is this necessary? Geoserver PostgreSQL/PostGIS GeoExt? Mapfish?
Has anyone had any experience with these packages in a Linux server? Could you provide any advice or links for setting this up?
