Hello,

I'm primarily a web app developer (LAMP) living in the UK, but I'm interested in lots of other technologies, most of which are open source.

Currently I'm tinkering with my Arduino when I'm not doing PHP for $. I'm actively learning C and am interested in new languages and stuff.

This is a good answer, but not the correct answer to the question.

Yup, sometimes you can't use key based auth for various reasons.. for example right now I can't use keyauth on a plesk server because out the box it's not enabled and I don't have root.

comment Getting CentOS 6 to trust a certificate from AD
Is there no way to 'sign' it or trust it myself? It seems a bit odd that I can't get my system to trust a cert..

Will give that a try, now it's just waiting for our client to provide said certificate...

comment Should servers have their timezone set to GMT/UTC?
I have worked over different timezones with different servers. We had serious issues with a project once where data was being stored with the servers timezone set to DST and GMT.. not easy to fix. Not easy at all. UTC is your friend :)

Hence you should just install from source. Don't be afraid.

There's nothing wrong with make install. As long as you're careful it's fine. Just remember to keep your installation directory so you can make uninstall if you want to upgrade later on. As jgoldschrafe said, you'll struggle to find a repo that keeps up to date releases and is 'safe'. Remember every time you add some weird foreign repo it could be filled with all kinds of nasties etc.
