Single CD (bootable) distro.
I hope everyone considers this the correct forum I was in two minds as to where to post it....
I wish to setup a secure web server that will have very little change (if any) once setup. It will basically be serving content from another box.
To ensure that there is as little as possible that can go wrong I thought about running a single boot cd distro running the web server. Now obviously the http.conf, ssl key & certificate as well as any authentication will need to be altered (and preferable burnt onto the CD).
Best case senario for me I guess would be to setup a machine and then "image" the install to CD. If anything went wrong a simple reboot would set everything back to the original state. Any attempt to hack the machine could be quite humorous as you would be unable to edit files, perminatley anyway ;p.
Has anyone done this? Any pointers?
Thanks in advance.
