I have built a Fedora Core 6 LAMP Server and to date everything has been smooth sailing. In my home network I run a Windows XP(Main development machine) box and a Linux box(Server). My router is a DLink DSL-G604T. I have a static IP address from my ISP. I have set up the router to route port 80 the the Linux box. I can access the Fedora Core Test Page inside my home network by typing http://10.1.1.2
from my Windows box.
My goal is. I have registered a domain name (e.g domainname.com). I want to host that 1 domain name from the Linux box.
At this stage I have 2 user accounts on the Linux box:
1. The main administer
2. A user named Jason
I have my website ready to upload to the Linux box. A few questions I have are:
1. Which account should I log into to upload the webiste?
2. When it comes to binding domainname.com to my static IP address, I get really confused. I have Webmin installed. What is the best method for binding the domain name?
3. When using nameservers for the binding. What IP address' should I use. I have read that I can use my ISP as a nameserver or can use the Linux box as a DNS server. Currently for my nameserver I use the following.
Currently when I purchased my domain name, I purchased it from Godaddy. When all is set up what IP address or domain names do I change the nameservers in the Godaddy control panel too. Currently the domain is parked with the Godaddy name servers.
(This whole step is what really confuses me).
The DLink router has the IP address of 10.1.1.1. The Linux box the Ip address of 10.1.1.2.
4. Where do I upload my website too, so that if someone outside my network enters http://www.domainname.com
that will shown my website?
I know I am asking a lot however any advise or a push in the right direction would be greatly appreciated. I have spent the last few weeks reading and reading and I must be looking to deep into it, because most times I can pick up this stuff with no problems.
A step by step guide would be awesome.
