    Help setting up my server

    I have my own dedicated server, i need someone to help me set it up.

    It's Celeron D
    Cent OS 5.3
    Webmin

    Having trouble continuing the settings.
    Any help would be appreciated.
    Email me for info to access the server.

    I can't give money or anything, the help is by volunteering.

    Regards

    yum install mysql bind


    yum install proftpd (I think proftp in another repository for centos you may need to add it)

    or you can get it from the proftp website http://www.proftpd.org/

    So let me get this straight. You are a web host; you don't know how to set up a server; and you are asking your competition to do it for you for free.

    Do I have that about right?

    No not really.
    My hosting is close and i never claimed to know configuring servers.
    And the server is for my website.

    Funny

    My suggestion is to get get a managed server or hire a management service to set up things.
    running a plain Linux box is fine and all (if you know what your doing) I would suggest getting a control panel installed on your server so you can manage the basic stuff. (at the very least)

    A real control pannel webmin is great for what it created for
    an (experienced admin)

    one upon a time I used webmin but doing the same thing from the command line is so much faster

    What that config is doing is asking where things are located...you need to figure out the paths of what you are setting up...locate is your friend

    hmm, webmin is really not a CP and it's just a web interface to configure various services and configuration files, which also requires extensive knowledge and linux concepts to configure and satisfy your requirement.

    it's better to get a managed server or higher a linux admin to complete your task.

    I'd highly recommend purchasing managed service some where.

    The issue is someone can assist you with the setup but we can't keep it updated, secured, etc. If you aren't sure how to set it up then hardening may be out of reach.

    I seconded and thirded. You have to hire a management company to do it for you. Do not expect that everything in this world will be free. Owning a dedicated server is more than setting it up. You must know how to manage it. Otherwise, do not get a dedicated server and learn server administration first. No offense but it's kind of aggressive that you bought a dedicated server and asking for help setting up your server for free.

    If your going this way then do this. read this http://www.virtualmin.com/download

    fresh install CentOs 5.3
    login>root

    cd /tmp
    wget http://software.virtualmin.com/gpl/scripts/install.sh

    /bin/sh install.sh

    When it's all done.Virtualmin,webmin,usermin installed.

    logout

    http://yoursite or site ip:20000

    login with root and rootpass

    follow the on screen guides.

    Read all the Docs for the other stuff. Someone has to learn somewhere.

    CentOS 5.3 should have some of the stuff already installed but just incase we're going to make sure..

    I would suggest you go with my last post since it's all done for you. but if not this answers all your questions.
