    Hi,

    I want to install this on a server and I've seen recommended configurations for the standard WHM, but not for this version.
    IS there a recommended server config for this, or does it not really matter?

    Server is a 2ghz Celery, 2x40gb hard drive, one of which will be used as backup (if this is configurable in this version of whm?)

    thanks.

    Bind tends to be memory intensive when you are carrying a lot of zones. Your processor is fine, disk space will be minimal so 40GB is fine.

    Thanks.
    Have 512mb ram in it. Will that be sufficient?

    So I don't need to worry about the way the disk is partitioned in the same way I would for the full whm?

    cheers.

    512MB is a good start for a few hundred zones provided the machine isn't doing much else memory intensive. Make sure you provide enough room in /var/named for all your zone files.

    I would also recommend a couple gig swap file just to be on the safe side.

    This is the machine's only purpose in life, so I'd *hope* it isn't doing much else!

    Thanks for the advice, much appreciated.
