I am running Ubuntu 10.10 as my webserver (thanks mainly to the EG community) and now I have been asked if I can provide web space to a handful of Sixth Form Students to host sites they have been building.
I am looking for advice on how best to do this and then how to achieve it please.

Turn your ubuntu webserver into a web hosting platform with something like:

sorry - that's not free..
"Webmin+Virtualmin. It's very light on resources yet full of features.
If you use RHEL, CentOS, Debian, or Ubuntu it even has an automated install

install xampp on the server and create sites that way.
edit: are they going to be public sites??

Yes public - i am already running as a production site...can i install xampp as well?

if you're already running a site from the machine anyway, why cant you just add additional sites?

Sorry should have been a bit more specific..
If you are running Ubuntu - then put the free webmin and virtualmin bits on and you get a nice web based control panel that allows you a dead easy way to create hosting/webservers/ftp access for your users..
it's cpanel that isn't free..

I can - but how?! I can create a new database for the Students and a new folder for their site but how do they access\ammend?

I've used ehcp for this: http://ehcp.net/
It basuclly set the server up a normal hosting type server. Students can then aget access via ftp, phpmyadmin and the all the normal tools

create virtual hosts
you can have losts of sites on one server with one IP address
VirtualHost Examples - Apache HTTP Server
but if you use one of the web based control panels - that does all the clever stuff for you..

frosty - through SMB? or set up an FTP server for those particular dir's?
