I have installed Fedora 21 server alongside with Windows 8. The installation appears to be fine. I would like to use it to host a website later on, that's why I installed a server version.

I realized I can only use command line once I booted into Fedora. I wonder if F21 server has a graphical interface or is there any third-party software can be used for that purpose?

There is no graphical environment by default. You can use any desktop environment you may like. Cockpit provides a web management interface to the server and comes pre-packaged with Fedora Server. Refer to

Thanks for your answer. Could you give me a little hand on how to install a desktop environment on F21 server? I have trouble to install GNOME by using yum groupinstall "GNOME". It does not seem to find the packages.
