Hey Dave,

Look at this site and tell me what you think.

I was looking at setting up a web/mail server with linux.

Is this a good guide?

I haven't dabbled in this stuff, and would love to get into it.

Seems ok if thats what ya after, but old (RH 7.2 Question ) which could cause troubles. It covers Apache which alot of sites do (i use the resources on http://www.apache.org Smile ) as its the most common web server for any platform and rather easy to get the hang on (same configuration setup on windows and linux, well very similiar)

DMail though sounds limiting and to be honest i have never heard of it. Most linux distro's come with Apache as web server and either or both Sendmail and/or Postfix. I use Postfix as i was told its much easier to use the Sendmail and is going to be superceding Sendmail.

Webmin comes built in with most distro's and is very useful and easy to use (can controll every little thing bout your system in the Web interface of Webmin (even hardware matters and shutting down the system)


Go http://www.apache.org for details on apache and for postfix i think i just used http://www.postfix.org and a mate who's a genius in this plus IRC/forums Smile




PS if you want tutorials a great place is http://www.linuxforum.com it has a forum, but also has hundreds of tutorials.

Thanks dude, I'll have a look at that.

I just want basically what you've set up.

A couple of domains pointing to the web/mail server.

Which raises another question.

I've tracked down a company that will register a .com.au domain for $59.99 for 2 years. If I use another ISP for my internet connection, is it a drama to point that domain to the IP address i get from my ISP?

shouldnt be, but ask them,

I have dward.us and jward.net from http://www.orderyourdomains.com cheap, but US ones only.

I then use http://www.zoneedit.org to get the DNS entries right for the domains and add sub-domains.
PS Zone Edit is free and very reliable.

Cool Thanks.

Just installed Red Hat 9 on an old PIII 533 I had lying around.

It's piss easy to install, but I'm running througha tute here that may help me in getting it going. A bit tricky as I've never really went beyond installing and then playing, but never really tweaked.

thats running kernel 2.4 yeah ??

Strongly suggest getting and OS that has the new 2.6 kernel, lots of gadgets and tricks built into it making life alot easier (and more secure)


Either that or grab the latest kernel RPM for RH9 (www.rpmfind.net etc )

I've downloaded the new FC2 Fedora as well.

Would that be better?

I only went with RH9 could I found that tute.

Will the online update from RH update to 2.6 do you think?

yeah you can update your kernel over the net although i have never done it myself just used RPM's

FC2 would be much better, easier and more secure.
I keep meaning to download that too and use one of these HDD's i bought off Graeme to try it out.

I'll have a go with this one, if no success I can alway rebuild it.

I'll have to go hunting for some tutes for FC2 though.

its not the OS ya want but the servers you'll be running

for example you need to know Apache to use it, Apache is Apache whether on Red Hat or Fedora os SuSe!
(some have slight differences like Mandrake has tinkered with Apache and called it the Apache-Advanced Extranet server , but essentially the same)
