web hosting softwares
Hi, Im new to this. Could anyone tell me the necessary softwares to be installed into a linux machine in order to start hosting for others. help would be greatly appreciated
Usually, you need something called a control panel that integrates other server software (web, ftp, mail, etc...) to host sites for others.
It sounds like you don't know too much about Linux administration. You should read a few books or find some resources before jumping into the setup.
A few comes to mind: cpanel, ensim, and plesk.
You can search the forum archive for more information. There are many discussions on control panel. (not to mention an entire forum dedicated to it).
Oh, I meant any books to recommend on Linux Administration, thanks for the info anyway
Red hat Linux bible by IDG Books
Apache Server Bible by IDG Books
The famous DNS and BIND
I also recommend you get 1 other security book and 1 perl book to help automate some tasks
