I want to build a new webserver (bear with me, I'm new to this):
My demands are (prioritized list):
1. Security 2. Ease of use (Administration, configuration). 3. Speed
General features needed:
- Multiple websites (domains) - PHP & MySQL - Mail server (with webmail interface) - Remote administration (Maybe SSH) - URL rewriting - Blocking/preventing hackers and spammers including brute force attacks
What I have come up with so far:
- Ubuntu or Debian - Hiawatha webserver - PHP 5.3 (latest version) - MySQL 5 (latest version) - Mail server...I don't know what to use - Anti spam software (Maybe Spamassasin)
What do you think I should choose?
