    Hi everyone!

    This is my first post on this forum. This site helped me a lot in learning how to install and configure a Linux system.
    I would like to build a server with dns,apache(php,mysql etc.),smtp,pop3,imap,ispconfig etc. according to a howto posted on this site.
    I prefer OpenSuSE for my server software. The problem i will probably have in the near future will be effeciency. My server may be overloaded and my users unhappy.My suggestion is to write a howto on building a cluster out of a coupple of computers based on the howto which described installing dns,apache(mysql and php),pop3,smtp,ispconfig on OpenSuSE 10.1.
    This would be very usefull.
    Thanks in advance.

    There are a few cluster tutorials available here (although for Debian). Anyway, I can't recommend using OpenSuSE 10.1 for a server. In my experience it's too buggy.

    I know what you mean but the option "Update Name Servers and Search List via DHCP" can be changed after the installation with Yast so it's not to bad.

    YaST is also really slow on SuSE 10.1 (I mean really slow). :(

    i think they need to rewrite the yast
    its nice what you can do via the yast
    but about 10 or so secs to load .. it a tab long
    when you have gotta go back in there like 30 secs later
    to do something again

    but for what you want
    is something where you install what you need and thats it
    try like an BSD or or slackware
    where you pick what you want to be installed

    but if you want to use ispconfig on it
    than im not sure if you can or not
    i dont think i seen an howto
    but maybe its supports them OS as well

    the ones like your opensuse / fedora is a more of a mix of both worlds
    privte : www / mysql / ftp / irc / other with an desktop
