The ideal Mandriva 2006 setup (for ISP’s and hosters)



How-to forge has what they describe as a copy and paste how-to up on the Perfect setup for Mandriva 2006 to meet the needs of ISP’s and hosters. It’s copy-paste because they suggest copying the commands and pasting them into the putty/xterm/console window on the machine that you’re setting up. It’s welcome to see this kind of “handholding” so people can see that it really is quite straightforward to get up and running with a linux server.


The software to be installed is…

Web Server: Apache 2.0.x
Mail Server: Postfix (easier to configure than sendmail; has a shorter history of security holes than sendmail)
DNS Server: BIND9
FTP Server: proftpd
POP3/IMAP servers
Webalizer for web site statistics

They say after this you should have a good base system to install the freely available ispconfig webhosting control panel

Obviously, especially with linux, there are more ways to skin this particular cat (it’s just a saying…), so there are many other ways to approach this, you should certainly evaluate your requirements, mileage may vary (some setups may be more complex), etc. That much said, it looks like a good 6 page walkthrough from installing the main system to getting the above services setup.

I was pleased to read about ISPConfig as a webhosting control panel too. I hadn’t heard about it before and am curious to look through their online demo.
