Install Kloxo-MR on CentOS 6
Step 1. Update all the packages installed on the Operating System.
sudo yum update -y
Step 2. Install the needed packages.
yum install yum-utils yum-priorities vim-minimal subversion curl zip unzip -y yum install telnet -y
Step 3. Make sure SELinux is disabled.

setenforce 0 echo ‘SELINUX=disabled’ > /etc/selinux/config
Step 4. Download Kloxo-MR repo.
wget https://github.com/mustafaramadhan/kloxo/raw/release/kloxo-mr.repo –no-check-certificate cd /

Step 6. Accessing Kloxo MR Web Interface.
Once it is complete, we can navigate to our Kloxo admin panel
https://your-server-ip:7777 over SSL or
http://your-server-ip:7778 without over SSL. So the traffic such as passwords and data will be sent unencrypted (plain). If we had trouble login into our Kloxo admin panel. We should stop the firewall before and make sure the firewall permits Kloxo traffic at 7777 and 7778 ports. The default username is admin and the password is admin.
