to configure these you need to refer the the server specific documentation.

in order to see the server stuff, you have to add some drak-tools (son't know which right now... not i front of my linux box atm) to your distro. you can find them via the package management in mcc. then you are able to set up the server stuff e.g. via mandrake control center.

hi zfraz,
as far as i know, servers can be configured by editing their config files. i have never heard of or not try to used any tools to edit any type of configuration. you can goto and read some howtos and guides realted to the services you want to configure. there are many howtos for many different tasks including configuring and using dns(named), apache, etc etc.
Hope this helps.

Mandrakelinux provides several configuration wizards intended to simplify system configuration. These are not required, but they do help eliminate typo's etc.


I use Mandrakelinux 10.1 (Community). If you do not see a selection in MCC at the left named 'Configuration Wizards' you must install the drakwizard package. you can use the Install Software application in MCC to do this.

Then restart the MCC window (close the MCC window, then open it again). Now you should see the selection for 'Configuration Wizards' in the left side of MCC.

I can use the configuration files, but the Mandrake Configuration Wizards help me to not have to remember so much off the top of my head, and typo's are no longer a problem. I am truly a lazy penguin

Set up your urpmi sources PROPERLY, see: for directions.

Also try

urpmi webmin

as well.

Nobody has mentioned webmin have they?

If you want server admin, load webmin it's on the discs
then type webmin in a terminal.

it will set up your Postfix and your apache easily rather than going through the manuals.
