setting up a linux web server
Posted on 2010-09-24
I am currenty building a test web server using ubuntu server v10.04.01 the latest downloaded it today from their website for a community interest company (cic) to test web designs already on a hosting account as we will do hosting ourselves for the community projects. So my questions are:
1 the router has no dmz to put the linux server into whats the best way instead of port forwarding, if I have to port forward what ports are needed
2 the linux server will have a dedicated ip address so how does the host header work so the hosted accounts work from the same ip address under dns
3 I am looking for a free c-panel/whm control panel so we tell teach webhosting as well as web design as the cic is basically a charity so we cant go down the cpanel route as the cost is too much. I am currently looking at ebox/ventyal as thats ubuntu's replacement for webmin. Should i look for something else ?
