Project Description

Looking for someone to help with setting up 2 servers, 1 web server, and 1 MySQL Server as well as some minor network settings. I am migrating all my web hosting from an existing host to my own in house web hosting.

The person who accepts this job will need to have experience with setting up Linux networks, Apache, MySQL and experience with Linux in general.

The person will need to be able to answer some rudimentary questions and help with some decisions on which applications to deploy.

Overall work will be:

Check & configure both servers, remove un-needed software, install needed software.

Check & configure networking (port routing for http, ssh, ftp).

Setup ISPConfig (server management software).

Help with setting up DNS.

Help setting up Gmail for your domain.

Test with setting up 2 existing domains / sites

Coder must be able to speak English and communicate through MSN Live.

I can't see the total amount of work being over 8 hours of work which will be done over several days while we wait for any needed network changes to occure (DNS, domain name changes, etc.)

## Deliverables

I will have 2 servers setup and accessible. 1 will be specific to web hosting and the second server will be MySQL. I will be running roughly 60 websites from these servers.

Both servers will be be running Ubuntu server [url removed, login to view] with the bare minimum software installed on them.

The coder will need to install needed software for each machine to preform their required jobs (Apache, sendmail, MySQL) and have any un-needed software un-installed to make each machine as efficient as possible to do their assigned duties.


DNS needs to be setup, either on the server, or using a remote service. Suggestions on this will be needed.

Bother servers are behind a Comcast business class router with 1 static IP. Bother servers will need to be setup to have 1 (or more) static IP address assigned from the router.

The router will need to be setup for port forwarding for the required ports (web, ssh, ftp,email for webserver, ssh for SQL server).

Both servers have 2 network ports. I would like to have both connected to a switch for internet, and using the 2nd port have both machines connected to each other for proformance gains between web and SQL servers.

ISPConfig will need to be installed and setup on both servers. This is a server managment suite for setting up/configuring websites.
