I have an extra computer lying around, so tomorrow I'm taking it to my dad's office and going to set it up. I plan on using it as a development box and to host some of my in-the-works projects. I'm not planning on using it as a production device and I should be the only one accessing it, so it won't get very much traffic.
This is my first time setting up a server all the way and I'd like to do it right so I thought I'd ask for your advice.
I plan on installing Ubuntu 10.10 on it, setting up SSH daemons, and configuring a LAMP stack. That should allow me to do any other administration remotely as well as sever the relevant files that I want. Are there any good pages on common setup procedures for this or any "gotchas"? I'm a little bit concerned I'll botch the LAMP set up.
