New guide for installing Snort 3.0.3 on CentOS

We are excited to release a new guide on the Snort Resources page today to assist users with installing Snort 3.0.3 on CentOS. 

Thanks to user Yaser Mansour for all of their contributions to this document. This is one of the best ways to help out the rest of the Snort community — by submitting things like documentation, guides and answers to our Snort mailing lists.

This guide walks through installing, configuring and testing Snort 3 on CentOS, version 8.1. Some of the
configurations may not be applicable to production sensors. The author encourages all users to test the steps in this guide before enacting permanent changes.

If you haven't already, you can check out the first official release candidate for Snort 3. Stay tuned for a full, public release of Snort 3 later this year.
