Unhappy Ubuntu 5.XX breezy Badger Server issue


Hey all,

I REALLY need some help on this if at all possible!

Ive installed ubuntu server on a cruddy, but very much usable PC.

My issue is split into two areas:

A) Once working but now not, i cannot ping out to anything on the Inet. I can ping other PC's attatched to my network but if i ping google i get:


Code:
root@server1:~# ping google.com
ping: Unknown host google.com

or if i ping googles IP: (i have to ctrl+c to stop it)

root@server1:~# ping 216.239.51.99
80 packets transmitted, 0 recieved, 100% packet loss, time 78988ms
B) Even when i could ping google and ping the inet my apt-get update would fail major time, i would always get:


Code:
W: you may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems
E: some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
Please, if you could give me any input i would be amazingly greatful!

Note: im new to this so dont flame me to harshly

1. You may have disabled ping in your firewall (If your network is OK)

Why are using breezy badger on a server ?
Is it supported still (I am not sure)?
You may end up with difficult problems. Use CentOS/RHEL or some Debian-stable based distro for servers.

2. Have you enabled repositories? download location?

#sudo apt-get update

You can use guarddog for configuring your iptables

whao, torrent of info there! thanx!

Ok, reason for using Breezy:

A) i dont know better
B) i have the CD's / its free
C) i found a tutorial to set it up along with apache/php
D) i dont know better

Ok, my main objective is to set up a server with some free linux software and run apache and PHP. I just used what i have used because i have it :S

Given my objective would you suggest i use another software for my server?

If so what and can it be used for apache and php?

Sorry to seem so usless but ive only been doing this for 24 hrs

You get apache and php in all linux distributions.

For a server you will need a stable server distribution like

RHEL-5.2 (if you want support) or CentOS-5.2 or the latest Ubuntu Server edition (it has a support too) or some other server distro
