i can't recommend to install the server to such old linux distribution.

CentOS will stay a long time at specific php version, and even Centos 7 isn't a good distribution if you need the newest distro, for example if you need to run glpi on the same host.

i can recommend this installation manual on debian


if you wan't to install a minimal client - i can recommend

It's not because you are a debian lover, that Centos is not a good distribution.

I have read your documentation and found many errors ...

Centos 5 is very old. If you want to install the server, choose Centos 7 that is supported by RedHat and by OCS Inventory. We provide also RPM to made an easy install.

Centos 7 is a really good distribution with a long support by the editor. Think to upgrade your server.

If you want to install the agent, you must use the tar.gz manual installation. We don't provide RPM as centos 5 is not supported anymore by RedHat. The agent must run whitout problem on Centos 5.

My OCS-Installation is also running on Cento - so i like CentOS 7

I wrote that it was the wrong distribution if you NEED the newest PHP because the you have to use specific repositories.

I don't know why you gave me a Minus 1 vote kapouik when i help people to get ocs-inventory running.
