Fedora Core 4 is pretty old. Why don't you use Fedora 8?

Anyway, instead of using apt, you can install all packages with yum. The syntax is the same:
Code:
yum install package_name

Default Tried that too.

Ive tried a few versions now, and had different problems, with mysql, and email mostly. I installed a Debian network install three times and it wouldnt accept the root user password, tried three times incase i messed up and forgot it (well, ive not been getting much sleep.)

can you please suggest a Distribution. im compleatly new to linux, still new to php and mysql. I have a turn based game online, (not sure if im allowed to post link, so i wont.) and was hoping to run it on a local web server for testing.

Sorry, but just one more thing. i have a domain registered with go daddy. i changed the a record to my ip address, this worked untill i installed ISPConfigwould you know where i could find moer information about this.

thanks for your time. JFM

Default ok, ill start again.

Hi, thanks again for your reply. the problem i was having with ISPConfig is now when i use the domain name www.xxxxx.com, ISPConfig replys with ' this is a shared server and that i must use a name, and not a ip address.

Any how, im going to instal Debian again now. i will let you know how i get on.

Thanks pat.

Please make sure that you have www.xxxxx.com in Vhosts_ispconfig.conf, and that you use an IP address from the
Code:
ifconfig
output in Vhosts_ispconfig.conf. If you use other IP addresses, you get the Shared IP page.
