hey i got a question: i am in the process of setting up a server with fedora core 9. I want it to be an FTP server and a web server. What do i neeed to download ANd how do i set EVERYTHING up.
Any help would be really appreciated THANX!!!!!!
As Macemoneta said there is currently no Fedora Core 9. For you question you would want to download apache and for a ftp server look into proftpd or vsftpd both are good in my opinion. both of these programs come with Fedora Core 5 automatically so you might want to check to see if you have them installed.
And throw out your Red Hat 9, and destroy any and all copies of it you have. If somebody suggested you use that, do yourself a favor and never listen to them again. That OS was junk to begin with, and certainly hasn't improved any is the 5 or so years since it was released.
As already mentioned, There have been 5 newer versions of the same system released since Red Hat 9. Use Fedora Core 4 or 5 if you like it. If you're building a server, use Slackware, Debian, or the free version of Red Hat enterprise, which I think is called whitebox. You certainly can install apache and vsftp on fedora core, but many people find Fedora Core bloated in the extreme, and all that distracts from serving what you want to serve.
I recommend Debian Sarge for a stable server environment. During the install you can specify what servers you want installed, and you don't need to install a desktop system. For a server you don't want a desktop system. You don't even want a keyboard and monitor after the install. There are tools you can use to administer the server via a web browser on another machine.
