    Just a quickie (I feel as if i'm bloating the forum)

    i installed my redhat from the 5 cds.
    how do i get the apache server to work and
    how do i get my dynamic dns updater to work so i can use the dynamic name]
    how do i get an ftp server to work, as i have apache and serv-u on my winxp side, all working nicely.
    My ambition is to go linux and ditch micro$oft.
    so
    HELP
    (please)

    Apache should work from the start if you just include it in the installation.
    DDNS must be set up later. I suggest you use Webmin for this, it's a good configuration interface for most things on the computer.
    To be honest I've never found any good FTP servers for Linux (there MUST be some!) so I haven't really bothered.

    For a good FTP server, nothing beats Pure-FTPD. But for a FTP client, there are some, just dont know any.

    For apache, on the command line try typing, as root:

    # apachectl start

    or

    # service httpd start

    if you dont have em installed, look for a package manager. I dont know red hat to well.
