First Dedicated Server.... Help
Ive just been given access to my first dedicated server which im going to use for a video upload site with ffmpeg.
Ive got ssh and a webmin interface. Ive managed to work out how to get the Apache and Mysql servers up and running so i can see the site via the IP address.
But now im stuck! I still need to link up the domain name with that IP and also install an FTP server (i think) as the only way i can currently upload files is through the webmin file transfer page.
When i try and install the ProFTPD module i see the message that its not installed or no config file is found. I cant manually see a config file even after running the install from webmin. I also cant seem to download the install file from the ProFTPD site :-/
Can anyone give me any advice on those couple of questions?
What distro are you using? Are you comfortable with command line?
I think this is what you want:
CentOS Linux 5
Webmin version 1.410
I know the *basics* of command line, i can move around easy enough and ive played around with ffmpeg to know how that works.

That is a great place to get howto articles. If you have yum then installing proftp should be as easy as

In order to get your domain to point to the box, setup a A record that goes to the IP address of the box. It's that easy. I've never used webmin so I don't know how or even if that handles virtual hosts so you can have multiple websites on one server.
Edit: I'd highly recommend going with a managed dedicated server since it sounds like you have no clue what you are doing. A lot can go wrong if not setup correctly.
