Does anyone know of any good current Linux web server setup articles?
What I am looking for would be preferably for Mandriva 2010.2 but most any should work.
So far I am finding articles in the 2005 vintage with out dated packages. The more current articles I have Googled don't exactly touch the real subject of step by step setup for Old Farts like me.
If anyone can point me in the right direction this would be GREAT!
I would really like to get thing up and running before my present hosting expires. (Another story for another day)
What I have tried
So far I have Madriva 2010.2 ONE installed that I am stripping of all unneeded packages.
The only reason in choosing this OS is that it is the only one that I found other than Ubuntu that is currently compatible with my server configuration I.E. Duo Quad Xeon 1.86Mhz Processors, They don't recognize the type of server ram 'DRD that is installed they try to find 'DDR' or 'SDRam' and there is this complaint about my video card. I have upgraded and downgraded the video no luck.
Obviously video will not be a major concern once the system is setup but the OS still needs to recognize the Processors and Memory.
I would have liked centos for the claims of easy setup and all web server packages readily available but with the above system it failed.
Fedora well letâ€™s say I still have it on DVD I am sure if there was a day that I wanted to wake up my old file server then I have it here.
Ubuntu Server installed but I am sorry that I donâ€™t and wonâ€™t believe another word on its speed. The Desktop version with all the extra packages is faster.
Mandriva 2010.2 Enterprise got lost with 15 errors and itâ€™s a current server OS.
Debain I have not tried due to the lack of keeping the OS updated. And being Green to Linux, the OS has to be up to date for an old fart like me to understand or so I thought. Maybe I should forget about what I have read about it and give it a try anyway.
I have learned in the past that Windows 2000, 2003 and 2008 servers only setup with a lot of hostility and aggravation. No wonder people leave the room when a totally screwed up pc comes to me.
Not to mention I can find one hell of a lot more open source software for Linux that will never be found for Microsoft
