First off I know there are companies/places that will "host servers (or desktop PCs as servers)." Anybody know of any?

Here is what I mean: http://clan-si.com/servers.php

I figured it would be easier to send to off to a company that "hosts" them instead of working with my NAT'd router (though it would be cheaper to get better internet service and a new router I suppose).


Anyways the main thing I want to know is:

How do I setup a server?

The farthest I could get on my own is inserting the Ubuntu Server Edition 9.10 dvd, and clicking install lamp.
Where do I go from there?

Try creating the file /var/www/test.php with the following contents:
php code

<?php phpinfo(); ?>



Then on the same network, open a browser and go to http://192.168.0.??/test.php

...but replace the IP with the local IP of your server.

If you run the browser on your server you can go to http://localhost/test.php.

If everything is working, you'll see a page listing all of PHP's settings and installed modules.

sprinkles, I'm afraid that if you set up a server, no one would every bother is visit it (however once I hosted a cs server when everyone used to play cs and it ran zombie swarm and it was quite popular...)

Perhaps sprinkles wants it for his own use. I know I'd like my own personal svn/git/mercurial...

Maybe I wanted to set up a server to smack little punks like you upside the head. Did you consider that?

And DR, because I like you, when I set up my server you will have your own svn; only on one condition though, its not shitty like Google's svn.

Ah, but see personal, it'd be mainly for convenience :p

But thank you, I imagine it could be quite useful. :)

You can put a password on the files/directory.

Admins can't read it if you encrypt it yourself.

The only people that would have the password (or access to the directory) would be the author, and super-dooper-admin. So you and I.

I could always just hijack Subadar's computer and the password to de-encrypt your secret maps would likely auto-complete. Then I would have complete full control.
