    Share a Dedicated Linux Server?

    I've just acquired a dedicated server from RackShack, and not only am I not experienced enough to run it (ach, I'll learn), but I'm not using it to it's full potential. With 200GB/month of unused bandwidth it'd be great to share some of hte cost (50$/month each) as well as have someone to help me out initially.

    Anyone interested?

    Darn! I wish you asked this about a week ago! I was looking for someone to share a dedicated with but already found someone. What OS are you running?
    If you need some help running it, I can help with the basics.

    I know you feel Jeremy. I got a new account with Diginode.net and it's just like having a dedicated server. There's so much stuff to mess with and it's all so confusing. I just ask a lot of questions to the tech support people, and they're usually pretty quick to answer my requests. If you would've told me a week ago I probably would've shared the server with you too, but I'm pretty happy with Diginode so far for $50 a month.

    Well, I've already got one other person, but a third person I respect and can trust would mean we could all have a mass of space and bandwidth for only 35$/month.

    Do you have Ensim Jeremy?

    The first thing you absolutely need to do is download the updated patches from Ensim, otherwise things can seriously get messed up.

    Oh... I see that this wasn't a "new" server. I guess ask the guy if he installed them. I don't think you can run into problems reinstalling them either - it'll just overwrite files with themselves. There is one patch in particular that can mess up your whole system if you setup your own nameservers and its not installed.

    boy, you know I was looking into a dedicated server, but I am not skilled enough "yet" to carry the slack of a venture like this. Let me know if you wanted to gamble anyways.
