Fedora v3, problem setting up web server
Ok, well here is the deal, I've ran into several problems.

I installed just the basic Fedora 3, with Web Server, and some other basic options. But now it seems the install ignored some of my requests but thats beside the point.

First off, I can access the server using putty when I have it automatically obtain its IP. I can change the IP so that is unique and no other computer on my network would have this IP (it would be impossible because the router starts at 100, I have the server at 50).

I'm using Webmin to set this all up.

When I goto set the Gateway I type in the IP of my router,, the machines IP, the subnet mask, and the DNS from my ISP (as I'm just using my IP until I get a domain).

However, when I go to hit apply, the machine stops responding. I cannot ping it, I cannot login through SSH, and I cannot bring its webpage up in my browser. The only way to get it back is to go down to the actual server and reset the network to automatically obtain is IP.

This is driving my crazy. Am I doing something wrong?

Oh and also, I selected to install MySQL server, but apparently Fedora disagreed with my request, and didn't install it. So I need to install MySQL, and Samba, and other servers as well.

To set the gateway all you should have to do is get a root shell and type:

route add default gw

As for installing packages, you should probasbly look at getting yum configured -- then you can just to "yum install mysql". There are plenty of yum tutorials if you Google.

I don't do Webmin, so I can't really say how to do anything from it.

Thanks for the help, I will have to test the gateway later tonight. I got a file exists output when I typed it in, but since I'm not outside my own network I can't really test if it worked correctly or not.

I'm trying the yum thing right now, hopefully I can get that going.

Again thanks for the help!
