Setting up ASP.NET on CentOS 6.x

With vNext, we are now finally able to run asp.net on Linux!

 

This is done via the MONO framework, which has been around for ages. However as it is with bleeding edge technologies, the setup can be rather cumbersome.

 

Here is the script that you can use to install the latest version of everything and set it up nicely on a minimal setup CentOS box (which is what most servers typically use).

Full source can be found at http://pastebin.com/aTxQne2n
