    Be careful doing this. After a few months and several servers it's hard to track where each server physically is. I've lost machines before now this way. They are up and respond over the network, but can I find the cupboard/room they are in? Can I hell...
    It should be able to work your back from the switch cabinet

    Yeah, it's crawling through the conduits and cable trays that's the tricky bit

    Re: Which *nix?

    To set MySQL root password:

    Code:
    $ mysqladmin -u root password <password>
    To create another MySQL user for a given database:

    Code:
    $ mysql -u root -p
    Password: [enter root password]
    mysql> GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON <dbname>.* TO 'foo'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'password';
    phpMyAdmin information

    Top stuff Webman!

    All working, just tried phpmyadmin and i get logged in and have made a database so its looks like we are ready to start adding sites.

    I changed the sources.list to the reposiaties one as told to by that website you recommended, do i change it back to what it was originally?

    Is there anything else i need to do to secure my server?

    So far i followed steps 1-6 on the "perfect setup guide" like you said and have installed phpmyadmin. Anything else i need to do?

    Nice one j17sparky

    You can leave it as it is to have access to a wider range of applications through apt/Synaptic; or change it back to how it was. It won't harm anything leaving them in though

    Strong passwords and no unnecessary services running are good for starters. As far as Apache etc is concerned, it depends on who you're serving pages to (internally or externally) and if it's exposed to the outside world or not, as to which IP restrictions you set on sites and/or virtual hosts.

    Re: Which *nix?

    Great so as its internal ill just leave as is, maybe change it to only accept requests from our subnet. But tbh this is fairly unnessissary as we do not have incoming traffic from teh outside world and never will, or not in the forseeable future.

    Thanks for all your help people. It was my first venture with *nix where everythings worked first time (Dont you wish M$ was like that too lol)
    Normally i get it right on my 2nd time after ive cocked all the settings up and learned from my mistakes.
