Install CentOS 6 in Parallels Desktop

The following are instructions to help you to create a CentOS 6 virtual machine in Parallels Desktop for Mac.

Create the CentOS VM

1) Download a CentOS 6 VM from Virtual

2) Import the VM into Parallels and create a new virtual machine:


3) When the import process is completed and the VM is started, login with :

Username: root
Password: tomtom

4) Open the Terminal (Applications -> System Tools -> Terminal) and enter the following commands:

$ yum install kernel
$ reboot

5) Log in again, open the Terminal and enter the following commands:

$ yum install gcc kernel-devel
$ reboot

6) Log in again, open the Terminal and enter the following commands:

7) Log in again, and:

Let Parallels install Parallels Tools:

If this does not start automatically, choose Install Parallels Tools from Parallels' Action menu.

8) reboot again

9) Log in again, and create an administrator user (so you won't need the 'root'-user all the time)

- Choose System -> Administration -> Users and Groups
- Authenticate with the 'root'-user's password 'tomtom'.
- Click 'Add user'

10) Open the Terminal and enter the following command:

$ visudo

Add the new admin-user to allow ALL, below the root-user:

adminuser ALL=(ALL) ALL

$ cd /var/lasso/
$ mkdir instances
$ chmod g+w instances

Final steps

- Check if MySQL and Apache are both running

- Create instance 'Default'
- Add the MySQL data source and check if it accessible.
