Building web server server


I would like to ask someone for a help with my server. I am trying to build a web server that would reside on my old dual PPro 200 MHz server. All services that I need on the server are sshd (for remote access from my desktop), httpd (as the web server), mysqld (for database) and smb (for file transfer access to and from my WinXP desktop). My questions is what services I can shutdown for sure if the system runs only in init 3 "text mode". It is an old system, so I am trying to get rid off all services that would "eat" system resources. The server resides on a small LAN with 3 clients. OS is FC4. Thanks a lot.

Well, usually if you boot into runlevel 3 (and not further), the graphics services (i.e. X11) won't be started. If you want to be sure, simply deinstall everything you do not need. You can also look at /etc/rc?.d to see what services are started for which runlevel.

Another tip: run 'top' and you will see that unused services do not need much resources.
