    1) secure your server

    2) think once again why you ordered server in first place, if you still have no answer to that question, i would suggest that you cancel server

    Works great with a fresh ubuntu/linux install just follow the steps here http://www.virtualmin.com/download.html

    controlling multiple domains from a newbie side of things its good, i like the cluster features webmin has as well.

    ok, you have reason. to learn how to manage dedi...
    now start with security first, that is my suggestion.

  • If you want learn. Don't use any panel. For starter, study csf firewall configuration to harden your server. Close all unused port.

    can I know, is it like a vps, I mean, the commands, how to navigate around, is it same like a vps?? I asked before on this forum and many said about complex things, proxmox, virtualization and more complex things.. I used csf before on my vps.. is it same on dedi?

    Sorry for my bad English

  • budi1413 said: Close all unused port.

    Ports that aren't used aren't open, so you can't close them :)

    I second your suggestion of no panel though....

    Not needed when you run it with sh, you only need to chmod when you execute any shell script as ./script_name

    By default, there'll some unused port that will be open by csf.

    Yes, it is the same. :)

    I always thought csf was an interface to iptables. Didn't know it listened on ports.

    Yeah csf is the easier way to manage iptables. :p

  • Once you get it the way you want, if you have no other use. Donate cycles to the boinc project. Setting boinc-client up, monitoring and making it work can provide some useful Linux experience.

  • I got hard time with ubuntu.. it is completely different from centos -_- I tried to install a seedbox but ended with problems.. I like centos more..

    Sorry for my bad English

  • @Zen said:

    I am using centos for too long.. I got hard time to make me comfortable with ubuntu..
    btw, its not totally different. I just saying that to expressed my feeling :)
    what you said is correct, got different errors, different problems, thats why I like centos more..

    Debian is also good, I don't use ubuntu only centos or debian

    ubuntu is more like debian right? I never use ubuntu before, I see some similarities between utbuntu and debian..
    btw, I reinstalled my dedi with centos, now, Im happy with it :)

  • can I know, If I buy dedi from another provider, are they have panel like online.net have??
    where I can install, manage and reboot the server?

    Most give that info when you order server, but if you are not sure, you will need to ask provider if they have that feature, not all providers have this, and with some that even depends on server line you have ordered.

  • @psycholyzern said:

    Ovh is similar. Most providers don't offer a panel

    One thing that I learned recently is that dedicated server providers offer many different ways for you to externally manage a dedicated server. Many of their control panels are provider-developed. Some are primitive, and some are very sophisticated.

    Some providers load your requested operating system, and you are on your own after that. You may be given a control panel that lets you power on and power off your VPS and that's it. If you misconfigure your VPS and cut off network access, you will have to open a ticket and ask the provider to help fix it or reload the OS. You may be required to pay a fee every time the provider gets involved.

    On the other end of the spectrum, some dedicated server providers include a control panel that gives you many external features that you can control - load a new operating system without provider assistance, a separate serial console, etc. - many of the same features that we take for granted with most VPSs.

    If you are thinking about signing up for a dedicated server, it pays to look carefully at the provider websites to see which control and management features they offer, in addition to the hardware and network specs.

    (Caveat: I have no experience running a remote dedicated server. I did a little research to fulfill my curiosity about the tools that dedicated server providers offer, to learn how they differ from VPSs. Someday I may sign up for a dedicated server, but I have a long way to go, learning to secure and manage my VPSs first.)

  • wow.. sounds hard to find a good dedicated server provider.. need to carefully understand what services they offered.. I will note it in my mind..
    to pay only for reloading OS sound so silly for newbie like me..hahaha

  • Try something with minecraft perhaps.
    Some control panel,experience with spacebukkit, it's open source.

  • Try to get more IP's and set it up as a VPS server! And then host a website, mail server, and minecraft server. That's what I would do with a spare dedicated server.

    He doesn't even know how to setup his own webserver yet...

    OP: learn fucking Linux before you buy a dedi, period.

  • Install ProxMox VE on the dedicated so you can create virtual machines to experiment on without having to re-install your dedicated every time you mess up. You could also use Dome9 for firewall - works for me quite well.
