System Admin - 1&1

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




Mail server

Parrallels 10.2

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.

Do you have any questions?

What type of service can you provide?

How much will it cost for EACH project;

Please seperate quotes 1)Initial, 2) Ongoing

We work in UK time.

MUST have references for similar work?

MUST be LINUX God or a least close........

Must be able to communicate regularly by email AND mobilephone AND Skype)

MUST be realiable, accurate, methodical and tidy - we want the work documented....
