I am planning to setup a LAMP server for our web development company. We are planning to use it in our local network. But I have some doubts in it.
Please, give some advises on it :
Which Linux version is best for LAMP
I need to take the backup of the files daily at a specific time, any tool for doing that ?
So this local server will be used by our employees and staffs. But at the end of the day, we need to upload the entire files automatic to our remote server with there database using cpanel. Can we make them automated ?
I cannot make the local server ON 24/7. So need the remote server too. So any useful suggestions ?
1.) Depends on what you know. Debian and Centos (Redhat) are both very common as is Ubuntu in many instances. All 3 have some considerable differences and may not make it easy to transfer between.
2.) There are plenty. Look at solutions using S3 (Jungledisk is a great one)
3.) Yes, CRON and RSYNC should foot the bill quite well.
Perhaps if your just using this for development you should look at even more localaized solutions such as MAMP or XAMPP combined with SVN or another solution that would allow changes to be committed.
