LAMP

So, what do I do now?

What should I know regarding security? FTP setup?


I have been using this as a guide. Other than some of it being horribly out of date it has worked so far.

Can I run this headless? I can't find anyway to login from another computer.

I'm running webmin 1.340 and usermin 1.270.

BUMPED:
Anyone have any tips on getting this thing up and running? I'm flying blind here.

UPDATE:

Something must have been installed wrong. The server crapped its self and wouldn't reboot. I'm reinstalling now.

UPDATE 2: Someone's server that holds some repository files must be off-line. It can't load a lot of stuff. Guess I'll have to wait until tomorrow.

UPDATE 3 @ 10:50 P.M. - Attempting to get this thing back up. To many damn repositories. Anyway, how does putty work with SSH?

I guess this was the wrong week to try and get this working with Ubuntu 7.04 being released. Check the IRC channel. It is a frenzy.

UPDATE 4: Back to where I was. I know I have SSH installed on the server, but.... What am I doing wrong?

---- Installing stuff in the right order has allowed me to login with Webmin...

UPDATE 5: Why are there so many tutorials that explain how to install ubuntu but not configure it?

UPDATE 6 and Bumped: Why did I stop working on this? All I have is a running Ubuntu box with Webmin and usermin installed. (Usermin is AWESOME)

What needs to be done?

Get SSL and putty working.

set up some sort of FTP access.

Set up a database.

Download and install wordpress.

learn wordpress and buy a domain.

Can anyone think of anything else?

UPDATE 1May07: I broke it. It wanted to update, so I let it. It wanted to again... then it froze...
