    Also quick question, Im looking at the forum page and under Your Distro there flavors of Linux, how do I figure out where to post since Im unsure what Linux flavor I have. How do I find out. I have access to the Linux server only through putty.

    Hello and welcome!

    You can check this thread for common questions about how the forums work and using them:

    http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/fee...ng-forums.html

    Threads should go in a distro specific forum only if the problem is distribution related. Otherwise, it probably belongs in one of the other forums.

    You can login to Linux and enter some of the commands below
    Code:
    cat /etc/*-release
    Code:
    cat /etc/issue
    Code:
    lsb_release -a
    One of those should show you which distribution you are running and its version number.
