    After installing Linux on my home server, hating myself, and testing Apache2 (in that order), the default index page is simply:

    It works!

    Hahaha. I wonder when they changed to such spartan terminology :-P

    Now if only I could install PHP. And I shudder to think how MySQL and PostgreSQL can be installed. And I puke on the monitor to think about how I can set up file shares and other cool stuff. And I punch the computer to think about how I'll set up stuff I need like subdomain support.

    Windows Server 2003 was fun. But it's also $500, cheapest, so I don't think so.

    Depending on the distribution you're running, it should be fairly easy. In fact, generally, all of those are cake to set up, more or less. The one that would be most difficult, if you wanted to do it the old-fashioned way, would be filesharing. I've never liked Samba much.

    Anyway, on Gentoo most of what you describe can be summarized in the following three commands:
    Code:
    # emerge php mysql postgresql samba
    # vim /etc/conf.d/apache2 # add the PHP define to the startup command
    # /etc/init.d/mysql start
    Granted, there're a few USE flags to be set, but that's a simple as editing a text file, too.

    But then, most people don't run Gentoo, and the wait involved in that first command would be sizeable :-)

    Point being, package managers can usually do a pretty good job of installing everything. Configuring samba can be a bitch, though.

    I got it all the web stuff up and running. Thank god for the GUI admin tools built into SUSE Linux 10.1.

    Too bad I can't connect to VNC...although I've never done it before anyway. An SSH server works though, and that should be enough for most things.

    Ah yes, SuSE has some nice tools. Concerning VNC/SSH -> http://www.nomachine.com

    Got SMB shares working, too. It would be nice if you could make them authenticate via users on the server itself rather than making separate users individually though [typethis]smbpasswd[/typethis].

    Actually VNC works too. The JVM on my desktop just wasn't set up properly so it wasn't loading the applet inside IE (applets never work in Firefox for me).

    Gotcha. SMB setup has always been a bit of a bitch for me. There's supposedly a way where you can get it to authenticate via shadow or passwd, but I've never been able to get it to work. Granted, I haven't devoted much of any time to it. Point being, there's theoretically a way.

    ...but how do you get MySQL to start up automatically? I have to start it manually via: [typethis]sudo /etc/init.d/mysql start[/typethis]
