"
IPV6INIT=yes
IPV6ADDR=XXXX:C810:300100::3/56
IPV6_DEFAULTGW=XXXX:C810:300100::1
DNS3=2620:0:ccc::2
DNS4=2620:0:ccD::2
"
Furthermore , I use apache , PHP , mysql , nginx etc , is there anything that I need to do ?

If it's running on centOS, why are you asking in a Linux Mint forum?
There are no silly questions, but there are silly answers.

Catweazel has a point; the topic has been moved to the Chat area.

And why would you want to default to ipv6? You'll actually get faster net response most of the time by disabling it.
