    What exactly do you mean what you can do with one? You can host anything on the web...anything you could do with a purchased server (if its powerful enough), and probably more since you have absolute control.

    So you have a server you want to host websites online with from your home?

    JaguarpcNick Thank you Very Much. Im sorry for the Misunderstanding. When i was talking about
    what all i can do with running a server.
    what i ment by that is what can a server do.. What are some Fun things I could do with it. When it comes to Programming Or Server's. Im clueless. LOL, I design & Develop.. Im just trying to add to my skillset.I think it would be nice to get the fundamentals down on webserving & webhosting.


    This is why i leave all the hard stuff to my friend But next time i have a problem on my server i want to be able to Know the basic's of installation Process etc. Does this help??

    Is it a linux server? Then http://www.linux.org/lessons/ can serve as an introduction. (I've yet to read them all myself). Being a server admin is a specialized job, not something one can truly learn in a 10 days course or anything like that. Any learning/testing should not be done on a production server!

    You might be able to access parts of the old dslwebserver.com site via archive.org: http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://DSLWEBSERVER.com. It was a nice site, too bad it's been offline for a while now.

    Being a Linux server admin isn't the same as becoming a PHP programmer - which you can read some quick tutorials-for-dummies and be on your merry way.

    Most sysadmins start out by fiddling with installing Linux on their desktops, playing with server versions on an old box lying around, etc. I'd grab a spare machine, install a distro on it (I recommend Debian to start with) and try to accomplish your tasks (setting up a web server) with it. You'll figure out the how-tos along the way with your Google-fu and RTFM-fu.

    No, you aren't fully protected. Just being up to date is half the battle, there are alot more things to stay on top of. Getting good at server administration takes years at best, as LinGBh points out, it is not just something you can read a few tutorials on.
