I'd love to help, but I need more info...

I could tell you to isntall a web server (Apache etc) and a database (MySQL or Postgresor somesuch) and your favorite scripting languages (Perl, PHP, whatever) and leave you to your own devices, but I'd prefer to actually help.

What are you asking for?
Or put another way:
What end result are your trying to achieve?

So you want a general purpose server to store your website and files on?

abimanyu007, LinuxQuestions is not a place to solicit people to do your work for you, it's a place to ask questions and have them answered (by volunteers). There are lots of people here who would be happy to answer your questions about specific tasks (there have been some already in this thread), but no one wants to do your entire job for you and even if they did, this is not the place to solicit contractors or consultants.

The only reason we're asking questions, is so that we know which instructions to give. There ARE a lot of them. We don't need to know if you plan to use your server to take over the world, or that you want to store your picture on it.

So you want to set up a server that runs like the ones you can pay other people for? Is that right?

I may have phrased my question badly, but I'll take your answer as a 'yes'.

The first thing to do, if you haven't already, is install a firewall. If possible, using an old PC and making your firewall separate from your server would be best, but if you can't do that, then ask around this site for people's opinions on the best firewall.

Having not been able to get my Linux box to connect to the net, I haven't had much experience with Linux firewalls, but I do know how servers work and how to set them up for access to the net. All I know about firewalls is that firewall-only distros tend to have a few more features than firewalls, for other distros.

I hope I haven't confused you. I'm just trying to help one stage at a time, explaining what I'm doing along the way. And I'm not calling anyone a fool.
