Newbie: Server configuration
sorry but I'm a newbie and I am looking for some answers...
- Server OS
I plan to install Zimbra on a CentOS 4.3 Server. Is this a good choice?
- Zimbra package
Which package should I use for the Zimbra installation (eg. RHEL 4)?
- OS package selection
Which packages should I choose during the CentOS installation?
Far as I know, an Apache/Tomcat server is installed with Zimbra. Can I use the Apache server for other additional applications (PHP-based)? Can I add some virtual hosts?
- MySQL DB
Can I use the MySQL DB server also for additional databases?
I also need a FTP server (eg. ProFTP). Is it possible, too?
OK, my "master-plan" is to run a home-server with Zimbra as the main service (dynDNS enabled for external access). But for some other tools I need an Apache server with PHP enabled and MySQL support include a FTP server. Samba should available for internal usage.
Yes, I know it's not recommended to run all services on one server - it's for home usage only (max. 20 user).
Did anyone know, if my idea is possible or not. All comments are welcome.
With kind regards,
