Hello Guys, I don't know if someone have asked this question before or not. I have recently started reading about Linux, so i do not know a whole lot of Linux. And i have been reading lot online about Different Linux distributions available. But my question is what is the best linux distribution for server. Which is easy to configure and free.
Welcome to the forums! :)
There really isn't a "best" that everyone would agree is the best, so you should probably go to http://www.distrowatch.com and study up on some of the many options there.
I can say that Debian, Red Hat, and Slackware have been very popular for server usuage for years, but I wouldn't say that one is better than the other, as they all have their good and bad points. Debian and Slackware are free for downloading, and I'm assuming Red Hat is still free, but I'm not sure.
As ozar said, do lots and lots of research on the net, and in particular take a look at the top 100 distributions on distrowatch. And also take a look at my sig. Just google:banana: google:banana:google.
Good luck and welcome to the forum! :)
debian and fedora would be good to take a look at
since you said you want easy to configure, i wouldnt suggest slackware, but you might want to look at a slackware derivative
Thanks Guys, really appreciated you taking the time and answering the question.
For ease of use id recomend ununtu(its debian based), mepis(another debian based one) or suse
