Setup Dedicated Server Website, Email, Security etc
Posted on 2007-07-21
I have a dedicated server with Windows 2003 web edition, I need some info on setting this up, securing the server, enabling email and how to put a website on the server for all to see without allowing entry to other areas of the server.
The dedicated server has two IP addresses, Windows 2003 web edition, IIS 6, Security Configuration Wizard (???), basically I think it is a pretty standard install of Windows 2003 web edition.
The server is to be used for storing various files that can be shared amongst my colleagues and I, hosting our website, email etc etc.. I have no idea how to go about any of the above (I am a complete novice) any help that is provided will be greatly appreciated - please be as descriptive as possible, in laymans terms - I don't even know if I have posted this question in the right zone!!! Thanks in advance for any help or assistance you can provide.
A step-by-step guide would be fantastic - I just don't know where to start.
