Post Server configuration help


Greetings to everyone,

I am new to linux and have given a contract. The contract is that there is a server that's part of a network belonging to an ISP. The server has ubuntu install with no server configured besides have two IP addresses public and private IP. However the ubuntu will be replace by redhat 9 and i was really hoping if someone can help in how to set up these two IP addresses on the same system in addition to that a DNS ( example xyz.com) with subdomains (example 1.xyz.com, 2.xyz.com etc), mail server, LDAP, web server etc. Everything will be in one system. Thanks in advance


Regards Ali

Well, you are asking for so many big things at once. You have to start step by step and we will help you out.

start by making the server see the network. Try to ping other local ip addresses on the local network.

You have been given a contract??? How did you get a contract to set up a Linux system if you have no experience with it?

I don't know what this is saying.

Finally, replacing a modern distro with one which is no longer supported does not seem like the way to start out.

It would help if you list out what you expect to do on this server. For starters, you probably will need build-essential, so you have the tools you need to build other packages, if they are not in the Ubuntu archives.

sudo apt-get build-essential

You use the password of the user currently logged in, if they are in the sudoers list /etc/sudoers. The user who installed is by default on this list.

What services are you going to run: apache, samba, ... ?

Don't forget app-install-data-commercial, which includes useful utilities like unix2dos.
