We are a new, small, business based in the UK with a 1&1 dedicated Server.
We have full root access by ssh etc. We also have Parallels 10.2 installed.
We have a development company who are creating a web based application for us but the server is always playing up.
What we now need (ASAP) is freelance Linux Admin.
I have split what we need into to: initial and ongoing.
1) Initial work
We need the server set-up properly with all security and possibily VPN connectivity and the normal user and admin tasks. Much of this is already working but needs checking and optimising (some may need reinstall - its OK if you want to start again with a clean install).
The following components (and possibly more) need setting up, configuring and security checking:
Users – create and allocate security permission, home directory etc.
Domains (we have 10 domains .com, .[login to view URL] and .de, they need to be so that everything is routed to one)
Tomcat – a java menu on web server
VPN – need to access each other’s pc and server securely
FTP - standard stuff
Backup – Host provides backup on second server need to automate process.
2) Ongoing Work
Check the sever/reports on a regular basis
Setup server monitoring (internal and remote third-party service)
Respond to server alerts (quickly?)
Respond to our requests for change or help - as planned
All the above can and will be better defined.

What type of service can you provide?
How much will it cost for EACH project;
