Hey, has anyone ever used Debian,

Wondering if it worthwhile installing as a Server OS, or should I just stick with my original Ubuntu 7.10Server plan. Still on the fence as to what to deploy as a Linux os for my Web/FTP/Email/File server that comes as full featured as possible.

I need Apache/MySQL/PHP/Perl as well as a solid email server.


Thanks,



Heeter

I am downloading Debian4 (released August 2007), it is a 4 dvd package. I am pretty sure that everything that I need comes with this package, and then some.

Debian. All you need is the bootonly CD, after that you can just download it from the apt-get repositories.

Is all you would have needed.

LAMP = Linux Apache MySQL PHP.

So technically EVERY distribution has it "builtin". I don't see how you can even call it builtin.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
