I'm looking for a recommendation for a Linux distribution for installation
as a web server. I know they all have apache and so on and some have webmin
and other management packages but I'm more interested in not having to spend
a lot of time removing packages that I don't want or need. I've had RH7.1 up
and running and it was okay as far as that's concerned.
I have been looking at SuSE 7.2 but have never used a SuSE disto before. It
seems to get decent reviews on the Linux web sites. I intend to have a web
server with sendmail,ftp and other common web services and will be
installing (fingers crossed) FrontPage support for a couple of my clients.
I'm currently running NT4 and it works okay but I'm becoming more concerned
with its end-of-product life as well as the ongoing security issues. I think
a Linux web server may suit my long-term needs better.
If anyone has any pointers to what a Linux web server installation should
and should not have installed, please send the links along.
