Build your own server - Part 2

Posted on Wednesday, Jul 25 2007 @ 09:36 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Bit Tech has just published part two of our Build your own server guide for Linux beginners. This article covers Webmin, SFTP, making the server reachable from the Internet and expands on some of the topics covered in the previous guide - if you could post a link on your site that would be very much appreciated.

"Leading the line of requested features was Webmin. Webmin is a web-based administrative interface to the server. Through that interface you can alter almost everything on the server, going from setting the correct time to adding Samba shares or users. Because this application is so powerful, it's also very dangerous. The Webmin interface is a great way for evil people to gain control over your server, because once they get an entry point into Webmin, your server will be under their control. So a healthy level of care is needed, so you don't open up your server for all the nasty ones around.."
