Post How to Configure FTP server?


Well guys am totally a newbie with Linux , this is the first time we've offered Linux administration course, ive now got a basic knowledge of using Kernel and i am working over Red Hat Linux 9.

No as part of my assignment i need to configure a FTP server and web server, i searched many things but may b because am new to all this so am not getting the cncpts ..
Thats y i m looking for a step wise tutorial (with little information of each steps like why are we doing that step) of configuring above two servers over Red Hat Linux 9.
This would be helping me alot in understanding linux.

Thanks alot ppl!

do google on vsftp for FTP info and visit apache.org for the Web Server. This should get you started toward where you are going.

An easy way to configure linux servers is webmin

If you are intending to learn using shell commands, then it is not the way to do it

If you are really using RHL9 (codename shrike), http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Hat_Linux DON'T(!).
It hasn't been updated (inc security) in yrs & has a no longer used kernel version.
If you want to stick with RH style, try Fedora 11 or Centos 5.3 (free equiv of RHEL).
It'll be more secure, up to date and people here will find it much easier to help you.
A lot of the websites assume you have a current (ish) distro.

HOWTO for Centos/RHEL: http://www.linuxtopia.org/online_boo...ion/index.html
