i m new to the worl of web masters and what i want is to install linux on my local system with following objectives
1. to setup and manage a webserver
2. to setup my local system as a web server
which distribution is commonly used for web-servers? what would you recommend for me? i have basic knowledge of linux, so understanding linux is not the problem
any other suggetions for me are also welcome!
The default server install for CentOS 4.x will give you apache2 + php5 + mysql, if you pick those options. The install process is pretty solid and understandable. Lots of support on the web for it and I've always been able to find my answers via google.
For the more adventurous, I would also recommend Ubuntu 6. Very good desktop and server, with a growing community and pretty slick apps installed.
