I recently bought/rent a new dedicated server (running on the latest CentOS and DirectAdmin). At first it was simply to host my clients websites. But I do get requests to install Teamspeak (non profit) and IRC network.
Installing shouldn't be a problem when checking all of the articles on the web. But what are the best practices to do so? I have full root access fyi.
Where do you put your source files? Do you create folders for each one of them?
Where do you install it?
If libraries should be installed, where are those placed?
Anything special I should take into account?
