"Set your server up with any software you require to perform the
tasks you wish to achieve. For me, this meant I wanted to send and
receive my email, I wanted to access my development host and
databases, and I wanted unfiltered access to the web in
"To achieve this, I installed the following packages onto a Dell
PowerEdge server running Ubuntu Linux 7.10 server addition:
"OpenSSH (to provide the SSH tunnel access)
Postfix (for SMTP access)
Dovecot (for POP3 access)
Squid (for HTTP/WEB access)
Apache (for web development, and local access to my web database
"I also made sure that my copy of Apache had PHP capabilities,
and installed phpMyAdmin into the web server root to allow me to
access my database servers. I also installed "webmin" to allow
general admin of the server."
