    hey all
    long time no post here

    but im being busy working and so on but i being looking at the diskless clients
    and working on doing an diskless PWS system

    with the lot

    but at the time as im doing this there is no admin interface i can find to do the job that i'm after

    so its means a lot of leg work to setup new domains and vhost all the time but beside that

    its going to be nice

    im may look at doing it to ISPconfig
    but i need to get my laptop back and find a free wifi hotspot to download all of the RPM packages that i need to do this so that will be something to do in the mid of jan 2011

    im hoping to have this out soon maybe by Friday next week .. as i gotta go away and write up the how to

    keep in mind this is just an proof of ideal how to ... so ... it may be of some use to some out there and may seem like a wank to other

    when done ... The time it will take to have an look at this howto ( go step by step) is about 5 hrs

    its a long howto
    where 2 hrs of the time is doing the systems installation and remote copying of the OS but i will give you screen shots when i can of what i got so far

    software i used in this is iRedmail smtp/Imap/POP
    pure-ftpd for uploading websites
    apache: being modded to use the pure-ftpd (trying to work out how to have user upload and being able to install like forums that work and so on)

    all howto i used from here and other the place will be listed

    but at the time pros and con of this is

    single point of failler
    dual NICS in front end severes
    back end server cost more to setup
    3 pcs needed

    but the saving are no hdds in front end
    if u running forums
    any pics upload to the site will be shown on all servers in real time
    each front end server can be DNS/mail/SMTP/WEB/FTP
    so the local is put on all pcs not just one or two at an time

    when getting hit hard
    like if ur mail servers getting spamed
    or someone trying to hack into ur FTP server

    or hitting the web server hard

    there are going to be auto reloading of DNS / apache
    so when new vhost sites are added it will add them to the list every 10 mins or what you want
    same with the DNS
