    Just got a AMD 1 Ghz - Ensim - Now what?


    I am sorry if this has been asked many times before, but I am hoping you all can help me & others in the future.

    I just leased a AMD Duron 1 Ghz. - Ensim from Rackshack.

    Now, how do I get this server ready to offer hosting to my customers? What patches should I install? What software/scripts should be installed? What upgrades should be made? What security measures should be taken? How do I get this server ready for the net & all the customers can ask for.

    I appreciate in advance all the help & advice you all can give.

    Thank You,

    Congrats on getting your first server (?)... the questions you've asked are very common for many new hosting companies around here who just get a Rackshack server and then expect to put customers on it... there's more to managing a server than upgrading the software etc. Over time, you'll come across problems... even small problems... that you'll need a Systems Administrator to solve, since Rackshack wouldn't be able to help you. I would suggest hiring a Systems Administrator to manage the server for you, the cost for such a person ranges greatly from $100-$300 per month.
