I lack the basic knowledge of what to do in order to set up my own server. I know of a few free linux OS's out there such as CentOS and Fedora but not sure which one would be most suitable to host my own web site. Here are a few questions I have.
1) What OS would be most suitable to host my own website as well as being able to FTP through my server directly?
2) Can someone please refer to me to several tutorials that may help me 'step through' the installation process
3)The machine I have set aside is 550Mhz, 256 MB Ram, and 30 GB of storage space. Will my processor or memory need upgrades?
4) Anything else that you can throw in to help me accomplish this is much appreciated.
As always, thanks in advance.
