Hello everyone. As you can tell from my username, “I don’t do webservers”. Unfortunately I have been tasked w/ doing just that. The setup I’m forced to work with is:
-a server behind a NAT router (all necessary ports are forwarded to the host)
I need to make this system as “turnkey” as possible, as I really don’t wish to be the one stuck with the “keys to the kingdom”.
I have spent the past few days googling for a comprehensive howto for Virtualmin, dyndns, and NAT with less than helpful search returns. I’m not asking for a hand-holding walkthrough here, but I would very much appreciate if someone could point me in the right direction: maybe a howto I overlooked somewhere. I’ve done some poking through the forums here hoping to find a stckied thread covering this setup, but so far that has been a fruitless effort.
I’m working with ubuntu 10.04 LTS and the install.sh script. That all goes fantastically well. My experience with apache and setting up a webserver amounts to “once i set up an apache server on a static ip address”(and it was quite an unsatisfactory experience. no offense, i just don’t find setting up webservers to be all that interesting. now if you needed a mass storage array designed and deployed for that enterprise level database you’re going to use on the backend, I could get rather excited and be quite satisfied when done…but i digress).
Please, if some kind soul could throw me a bone here, that’d be awesome. The growing knot on my forehead will be most thankful.
