apt-get purge apache2 apache2-bin apache2-data apache2-doc apache2-mpm-prefork apache2-utils

apt-get autoremove

whereis apache2

rm -rf /usr/sbin/apache2 /usr/lib/apache2 /etc/apache2 /usr/share/apache2 /usr/share/man/man8/apache2.8.gz
`

**Step 2
**

Uninstall Postfix

`service postfix stop

dpkg -l | grep postfix

apt-get purge postfix`

**Step 3
**

Create user

`adduser username

adduser username sudo

  • I have no idea why you'd want to kill Apache and Postfix as a first step, but whatever floats your boat. I also suggest openntpd over stock nntpd, personally. Before you do any of that, add your user, install sudo, add your user to sudo, and disable root ssh, but, again, that's just what floats my boat. :D

  • should this say Openvz template in the topic?

    Sorry. Yes. I can use OpenVZ.

    Hi,

    In step 3 I create the user:

    adduser username
    adduser username sudo
    chmod -R 700 /home/username

    Delete Apache and Postfix because it is necessary to install a control panel. For example, to install DirectAdmin, you need a clean OS.

    Regards,

  • Ah. I don't tend to like the control panel rolled versions any more than that which come with the base OS.. in fact I tend to prefer them less. :)
