I have been interested in linux for some time now, and as a project, me and some friends are making a personal webhost (to start off) for ourselves to use and to learn linux.
I have a fresh install of RedHat 9.0 on what will be my server. I did minimul install, and installed the development tools. I want to build these servers right from the source to stay at 100% up to date all the time, and learn it even better. I tried RPMs with Mandrake...and just don't like it.
Heres what I picked out for our server setup:
ProFTPd 1.2.9 (already installed and running A-OK)
Apache2 httpd 2.0.49
MySQL standard 4.0.18 (source; installed and running A-OK)
Is there any dependencies or anything else I will need for these installs? Or anything that might be good to have. I am trying to make the server run as professional as possible...as one of the paid hosts would run.
Also, one last question...What is the proper order to setup these things in, if any? Apache2 first? then PHP and Perl or how does it go?
