New To linux


Hi guys

I am very new to linux and have got myself a new server so I can learn how as its always been a mystery to me how people set up these servers.

So ive got a root server with plesk 9, and i want to set it up so I have a domain name and want to set up my server to use this?

Where should i start ? what should be the steps I use to get started ? anyone know any good guides i can use to follow ?

Someones mentioned setting up apache is this the first thing i should attempt ?

Woc

Yeah that's right. You can use other webserver if you like. Control panels won't teach you anything: they are made for users, not sysadmins.
Read the manuals for apache httpd if you are going to use it, but i personally use and recommend nginx: i find it quite easier to configure just to host static content: a bit harder to configure it to run PHP/etc on FastCGI but it's all covered in manuals, same for apache httpd.
If you will have any specific problem with configuring those, you can post it to Server forum.
