which linux will be perfect for me to run a server?
I am little bit confused.I want to open a home based server.I bought a domain name.Now I want to connect my domain name with DNS server.As I don't have a static IP ,I will take an advantage from Free Dynamic DNS, Static DNS for Dynamic IP to get an dynamic IP.
Let me clear,I want to open this server as an educational purpose. My web site will have some facility to open sub domain name.I just want to know how every thing works.I want to have some practical knowledge.I am using virtual server at my desktop.I want to start with JSP,MySQL,PHP,webmin etc.My current server is running under debian .I want to move to redHat enterprise 5.Is it a good idea?
Please give me suggestion.I am not an expert so I thing moving to BSD or Solaris will not be a great idea.What do you think guys ?
