The perfect setup - Debian
This is a detailed description about the steps to be taken to setup a Debian based server that offers all services needed by ISPs and hosters (web server (SSL-capable), mail server (with SMTP-AUTH and TLS!), DNS server, FTP server, MySQL server, POP3, Quota, Firewall, etc.).
I will use the following software:
- Web Server: Apache 1.3.x
- Mail Server: Postfix (easier to configure than sendmail; has a shorter history of security holes than sendmail)
- DNS Server: BIND9
- FTP Server: proftpd (you could also use vsftpd)
- POP3: in this example I will use qpopper.
- Webalizer for web site statistics
