Im just about to setup a intranet web server. Got all the hardware ready with a cheap IDE RAID card, lol, gunna just run mirrored/striping.
Now all i need to decide is which distro to use. I dont want to be setting this up and then 6months down the line when its live and people are relieing on it, to realise that I would have been better with x distro, or y software wont work with the installed distro, etc etc.
It will be running primarily as a simple apache server supporting mainly PHP and MySQL based sites. SSH root access would be nice as i dont plan on having a monitor attached.
I can work with CLI, just takes abit to get back into the swing of navigating *nix filesystems, so i could manage without a GUI as long as i have instructions/guide to follow.
Your recommendations on which distro and which software please :D :beer:
ITE Raid Card
2x maxtor 40gb HD
512mb ddr 2700
2x 100mb realtek NICs
Spec can and will be upgraded. I think the celeron will cope, what do you think? 300 workstations but nowhere near all will access at once
