    Question What distribution, for server + proxy (with cache) + web interface


    I'm looking to move one of my computers to Linux.

    I need:
    server-software: Apache2, MySQL 5, PHP 5
    it will be used as a local proxy (all other computers use windows Vista), caching and traffic shaping would be nice
    a web interface, so no screen/keyboard has to be connected (except for installation).

    So I'm looking for a light-weight linux distribution, that's easy to configure (almost runs-out-of-the-box).
    *light-weigth, because I don't need any gui, nor many programs. The computer will be at least an AMD 2600+ (2GB RAM)

    Untill now I've found ClarkConnect, but I'm looking for alternatives.

    Thanks in advance for your sugestions.

    Any distro should do as long as you install the right paackages. I personally recommend CentOS and Debian for use on servers.
