AlmaLinux is well on its way to becoming one of the most popular drop-in replacements for CentOS/RHEL. Anyone who has used CentOS will immediately be familiar with the operating system. Any admin who’s not used CentOS will find it as solid a platform as any other for enterprise-level computing.
Although the installation of AlmaLinux is just as simple as any other server-ready operating system, you might find yourself at a loss as to what to do upon the first login.
This checklist, from TechRepublic Premium, consists of nine things you should do immediately after installing AlmaLinux. This list of items can be applied to all use-cases for your new server operating system. And although there will be plenty more to do (such as install the services and specific software you need), you can count on this checklist as a launch point to getting AlmaLinux ready for production environments.
