I need basic webserver functionality, with the LAMP stack (where P is PHP), minus the FTP since I have constant physical access and I don't want to open a hole for attacks and unauthorized access.
- What version/edition do I download, burn and install? I don't understand the myraid of editions.
- How do I install/configure the LAMP stack (with admin panels) in order to get my server online?
- How can I setup the software for maximum anti-hacker protection, especially for Databases?
- Any dashboard and monitoring softwares that help in reading server performance/overloading?
