How 2 Build webserver
Posted on 2004-09-17
I've got a spare 400mhz PII box, and am looking for links to sites on how to set it up as a webserver ... I'm coming from a strong windows background, with decent scripting/programming skills, and am very familiar with windows/PHP - but am brand new to linux. I'm also hoping to duplicate basic email/webmail functions on the box as well.
I realize this is no small task, and i'm not looking for a long essay on how to do it, but will hand out my marks on quality of links, and quality of advice.
- only looking to put less than 10 sites on it, so won't be huge load
- i'm not tied to any particular disto, but install & setup has to be relatively easy, as I don't know any linux commands (other than the bare basics)
- looking for a pretty basic apache, PHP 5.0, MySQL install
- need email server ... webmail would be nice
Thanks for any advice you can offer ...
