    Hello, I have recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 Server edition and I have decided that I would like to install CentOS and give that a try. I was wondering if there were an guides to setting up a LAMP server without ISPConfig for CentOS? I have found this guide on here; http://www.howtoforge.com/centos-5.1-server-lamp-email-dns-ftp-ispconfig. This is what I am planning on doing with my server. I want to create a LAMP server so I can host a website from my house. Just one site, so I feel that I do not need ISPConfig. If you guys have different opinions please let me know. I also want to set up webmail so I can create users email accounts through squirrelmail. I will also be running the HLDS for a Team Fortress 2 Dedicated server, but I know how to do this. Also I would like to set up a DNS, if it is possible, so I don't have GoDaddy forwarding people to my IP address when they type in my domain they type. So basically all I am looking for are guides on how to install CentOS and configure it so it is a LAMP server with Email support without installing ISPConfig and unneeded software. How to set up Virtual users and domains for Squirrelmail using Dovecot possibly in stead of Courier (like this guide for Ubuntu http://www.howtoforge.com/virtual-users-and-domains-with-postfix-courier-mysql-and-squirrelmail-ubuntu-10.10, but using Dovecot). And a guide on how to set up a DNS on my server so I don't have to just forward people all the time.

    -Thank You

    Thank you very much! The DNS looks pretty complicated, haha. But thank you!
