Default Re: My Own Web Server

Setting up the installed Linux NETWORKING
################################

First you will have to change the ip of the server

log into your server using your "admin" username and password that you typed when installing the linux os.

type in the command "sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces" (with)

right now it looks something like this
Code:
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp
this is the setup for DHCP configuration (the router assigns the ip), we don't want that the setup for a static ip (one that never changes) is below

Code:
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
address 192.168.0.100
netmask 255.255.255.0
network 192.168.0.0
broadcast 192.168.0.100
gateway 192.168.0.1
once your done typing type "ctrl+o" to save the file save as the original filename, reboot or type "sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart" to restart


Setting up the installed Linux FTP SETUP
################################
First im going to piont to "http://www.faqs.org/docs/securing/ftpd.html" for securing and chrooting <---- this is a must for a semi secure server.

And for installing "http://www.debian-administration.org/articles/383"

I will type in a more customised step by step instruction tommorow but its 4:09 am and im getting sleepy. post if you have any questions if you have any problems

no there isn't a set limit. XP would probably be suitable as a simple solution but if you wanted to you could go down the linux route to get more experience
