I'm looking to colo a server pretty soon to do some hosting for a relative's business. I'm looking at putting Directadmin on there, in the case that I decide to do some selling on the box also. How do you handle installing something like that? They require the IP address of the box when you install it.
(They told me that it could be changed by editing some config files in the future...)
So....regarding IP's for DNS, Directadmin, and everything else that is IP specific... how do you handle it? Do you build the boxes locally and then just ssh in and change the info? Do you install webmin and hit it that way? Can someone clue me in before I do something extremely wrong and cost myself even more money than I've already spent on this server, components, and soon controlpanel?
Thanks in advance!
