that i need. I can already say that i prefer open source
over commercial software. Any help would be appriciated
and any pointers on what to do would also be appriciated.
Going to have to clarify what you mean by "make a webhost". Serving who? How many? What kinds of web pages (Java? PHP? Plain HTML?), going to give shell access? What kind of environment are you putting this in?
If you've got Apache up and running, with PHP and MySQL, you can serve up a good amount of content. But you haven't said anything about the hardware you're on, what version/distro of Linux, so it's hard to say what else you need. Are you looking for content management stuff, user administration stuff, or what?
