Which distribution is best for a webserver, I'm new to these forums and linux so if you could advise me of a user friendly one as well that would help a lot. I'm sure you'll see a lot of me from now on

Before you get the flood of responses...

If you search the forums this one is asked quite a bit

Probably something like Redhat or Debian is gonna be the closest of a non-biased answer you'll get.

Cool

You're welcome

And just an FYI:
Server is quite 'vague' in linux. A fileserver, an mp3 server, a mp3 streaming server, a movie server, a web server, a mail server, an ftp server, an ssh server, a Samba server...

What kind of server?

Cool
