Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

That's a big topic. Could you be a little more specific?
From this . . .
I want to set My server up for Webserver/Firewall(LAN),FTP.
I usually setup as LAMP server.
Just need direction for WebServer. With Drop down menu,or not. several info pages, picture slideshow, and calendar.
. . . it sounds as you already know how to setup the LAMP stack. If you are asking for information about creating a website and already have the server or at least the knowledge to set up the server, which would be the LAMP stack.
If I've misunderstood, please set me straight.
The easiest way to setup a site meeting your description would be to use something like Wordpress, then select an appropriate theme and configure it up.
If you have questions about how to set up the LAMP stack under Linux, it would help to know which distribution you are contemplating using. Some distros make the installation quite easy.
You need to list way more details you just ask a questions with a million answers.
First off your webpage/site what type of code is it going to use ex. basic html, php, perl, etc? You need to know this so you can setup your webserver.
Then you need to whether you need access from the outsidee of your LAN. If you do IP address to connect is fine but If you plan to use DNS you need to setup dynamic DNS if you have a dynamic IP. When you run a server on a LAN then DNS can become difficult and hard to understand if you don't know how it works.
Now you figured that out you need to figure out what Linux you want to go with I recommend CentOS, Apache web server, and any extra software you may need. There are some software such as webmin this will help you but again a recommendation is learn how to do it all from command line befor doing a gui so you understand how to setup up and manage it.
I think the original poster may be confusing webserver with website.
the webserver is a program which allows your website to be accessed via a web browser. To set this part up you'll need to install a web server program such as nginx or apache. You'll also need to consider your DNS routing needs.
The website will be stored on the webserver and how you create it (dropdown boxes etc) is up to you. If you use server side programming language such as php you'll need this enabled in the webserver.
Someone sugested wordpress and from the nature of your question I must assume that your experience with webservers/sites is limited and perhaps wordpress or something similar would be a good place start. You will still need a webserver however.
Response: 530 Login incorrect.
Error: Critical error
Error: Could not connect to server
I used a valid username and password that works on other server login with same system.
Are you giving an update? From what I get you are trying to setup a web server prolly a LAMP (Linux, Apache, MYSQL, PHP) server. You need to give information on what Distro your using, control panel if you plan on installing, and what kinds of web services you plan to use such as php, perl, python, ruby, mysql, ffmpeg, many more so we know where to point you to.
Oh I just wanted to add this a basic lamp howto on something like centos. This isn't the recommend way unless you know what your doing. Which you shouldn't run a web server if you don't know what your doing but you got to start somewhere.
This is building everything from source. Now centos has all the packages compiled and ready to install working togeather but you'll have to recompile for specific mods and stuff. But I figured I would give this link to you to see if it helps. I can't say that this works I just gave it a brief look over but its a start.
