I am just setting up a Linux server for my personal use. I do not have any experience with linux so far and would like to do this the easiest way possible.
Here are my requirements.
I need to run a web server with mysql database and would like to have a GUI interface for that. I have looked at blueonyx.it
I need to install Asterisk for my phone system as well and configure it via their GUI. asterisknow.org
The server will be in a datacenter so i would like to have remote access GUI login.
Both blueonyx and asterisk have install CD which will install their versions and GUI, but they will reformat everything. so it means i can only use one of them.
what i am trying to do is to install the blueonyx which will give me the CentsOS 5 as well. How do i install a Linux GUI on this now which will allow me remote access for control. And then how do i put asterisk on it with their GUI?
Is it just better to use the Ubuntu Server edition and install a GUI for it or should i go with CentOS.
any help is appreciated. i have always found it is better to ask questions before beginning to save a lot of headache.
i have never used linux before. so far i have been able to intall cent OS 5.2 and then install asterisk 1.6 with the GUI 2.0 on top.
Now comes the part about the webhosting. The blueonyx looks good but again is there a way to do it with just the tarball, not complete install..... now assuming i can do that, how do i remote connect to this server via a GUI on my local machine.....
asterisk http config is on port 8088, how about the bleonyx.
or if i can remote access via my local GUI then i don t even need to access these separately. in this case should the server have a running gui install or it does not matter as long as my local machine has one and the server lets it login.
tink, the pbx in a datacenter gives me full time connectivity while i travel and might not have ip access. so my phones are not down.
