Plain Blank Dedicated Server - What do we do?
I've got my eye on a dedicated server, which includes nothing, basically.
My primary ( only ) use will be to host a forum, which requires PHP & Mysql databases.
Would i need to install them both? How would i do that? I'm new
They include this:
HTTP / Web Server
SMTP / Email Server
MySQL / Database
None. Please do a base install only and provide SSH or RDP for remote access. I will install what I need.
If you don't know what you're doing - you are really going to want to go with the following:
a) A server with a control panel and hire a 3rd party management company
b) A fully managed server
If you are new, the very last thing you want to do is get a plain blank dedicated server.
You might even consider a managed VPS, like what ServInt offers.
Please, help us all out and don't do this alone without experience.
Without experience, you're bound to be hacked, exploited and your machine may turn into a spam zombie or something.. just follow what sirius explained.
Is there something wrong with you using shared hosting? Is your forum too big?
Maybe a VPS would be better for you.
sounds like you are looking at corenetworks
higher some expert to do the job for you or you will be spending times troubleshooting configuration if you are new.

I would recommend a vps or dedi from liquidweb. Excellent support and they are very noob friendly.
I have a vps with them and run my vbulletin site on it.
What are your forum stats, this might help people reccommend something for you.,
As long as you know how to administer the SW installed, you'll probably be ok assuming your host does a good job with the OS install.
I'm sure you could find someone to help out with your initial setup for not a whole lot of $$$.
