[SATLUG] Hosting a Gitorius website/repo

I've been wanting to host my own Gitorius website/repo ever since I
found out that it is open source, and that GitHub is closed source
(sounds ridiculous because GH advocates FOSS). I have my programming
projects on GH but want future ones on my own Gitorius.

I am running CentOS release 6.2 (Final) on an unmanaged Rackspace
cloud slice. I read the guide in the link below. I get to the
paragraph right before the commands start, and it says to disable what
I believe are some important system services such as disabling DNS
lookup, cron task scheduler, etc. Even if I did not write any scripts
or commands for cron to run on this server, cron still runs other,
probably important, tasks by default. Do I really need to disable all
those services to install and run Gitorius? I am ok with disabling
sendmail, bluetooth, and gpm.
