Hi, I've been doing lots of googling about building a webserver using ubuntu server 9.10 but I got notthing. I mean, a lot of info I read was helpful but it does not work under my circumstances at all. So I want some help from Ununtu geeks. Just reminder I have'nt grasped the concepts of the web server and I am new to ubuntu and I hardly know the linux coomand!
My question is "HOW TO BUILD A WEB SERVER ACCESSED BY ANYONE FROM OUTSIDE USING UBUNTU 9.10".
I have purchased a domain (lets say "abcd.com") and I have a desktop with Ubuntu server 9.10 installed and from here, I am totally stuck.
As far as I know I need to make the IP static and have to change DNS, as well as firewall settings for my router etc. Could anyone tell me how to do this step by step please?
Post script) if possible, please instruct me in a great detail. I mean someone explained on how to set a static IP as following:
iface eth0 inet static
But I have no idea what the addresses are from. Is that what you made up or this is according to my IP and Internet connection setting?
Thanks in advance.
