    ok, just made the leap. I have one managed server and now have a dedicated server.

    I am not a programmer and have little system administrating experience but was able to get the Linux server up and running. Apcahe looks like it's ok and FTP & Email works. I am using Plesk to do all this. Here is my question:

    Even though things are up and running, is it a wise choice to get a real expert in to double check my setup? I notice a bunch of options in Plesk that I have not or may not need to use but would like to hear feedback on a Linux server setup. Is it really as easy as half a day's work? Something doesn't seem right. Reason I say this is that yes I can change the brakes in my car but I would never count on me being the brake expert if I was to use my car in the a race. I always like to depend on experts to do their job.

    Any feedback would be appreciated.

    If it'll make your comfort factor skyrocket, then why not?

    Next question is: Do you know A Real Expert?

    Sometimes you really don't need to know why a thing is running as long as you know that it is running and can take advantage of it.

    Hey CodeJ,

    You are absolutely right. Sometimes you really don't need to know why as long as it works. Must be my obsessive compulsive behaviour coming through.

    Don't hit "Shutdown..."

    Really it is pretty easy and as long as everything runs there shouldn't be any problems. About the only advice I can give without seeing the setup is just the standard, "keep backup copies of your sites" (somewhere other than on the server).

    It is a beautiful thing, to do nothing, and then rest afterwards.~Spanish Proverb

    May I ask why you went with Plesk? I currently have Cpanel and for some reason love it and all my clients love it as well. There are many features in there such as Forums, Shoping Carts, live chat, etc... the Live Chats and those are not used as widely as the Forums or Shoping carts. May I ask who your server is with as well. Hope all is well, and I have a Managment team to take care of security issues as well. If I don't know it I pass it on easy as that. No reason to put your server at risk due to lack of money.

    Hope all is well
    Thanks,
    Frank

    hey Frat,

    I went with Pleask because it was the choice suggested to me by the web host company. I told them I don't have much experience setting up a dedicted server.

    Just PM's you for a personal request about Cpanel.
