    Hey all
    I just finished the ubuntu guide to installing a LAMP server for total noobs, everything is setup now, i can access my server via its ip address:8080 and see the index.html file i put in there, but I have a few questions.
    1. How do i secure my server? Should i setup the firewall in WEBMIN?
    2. How do i associate a www.whatever.com address to my servers ip?
    3. How can i setup email for whatever@whatever.com?
    4. Why dont any icons show up in webadmin when i access it via http://ipaddress:10000?

    You can try that. Apart from that, you can have a look here: http://www.howtoforge.com/intrusion_detection_with_ossec_hids

    Create an A record for it and point it to your server's public IP address. http://www.howtoforge.com/traditional_dns_howto

    Have you tried http://ipaddress:10000/ ?
