Hello All,

Just had my new Dedicated Server today. But not very sure how to configure.

1. Resolver setup - I have 1 based IP address, 1 main domain IP address and 10 other IP address. In the resolver setup, there are 3 resolver, namely, primary, secondary and teritary.

Should I input the based IP to primary, main domain IP for secondary and leave blank for teritary?

2. Is there any tutorial guide for managing dedicated server?

or

P.S. both links are the same the first does not work for you because you have logged in by using IP address also if you see &ALREADY LOG IN!& page after clicking on a link click on the home button in cpanel forum navigation bar and then refer to your desire post and click on the link again

Thanks for the guidance!

Now that I faced problem on the EDIT SETUP:

No idea what should I do to the following:


Home Directory Prefix: [no idea should I leave it to default, which currently is 'Home']

Hostname: [shoud I leave it to default? Or should it be our own domain/IP?]

BIND Version: [usually is 8?]

Master Nameserver: [is this the same as primary nameserver? something like ns1.domain.com? Or should I leave it blank?]

[b:50773a8e59]ITF[/b:50773a8e59] & it is your own hostname/server FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name) like this: server.serverdomain.net

[/quote:50773a8e59]

[b:50773a8e59]ITF[/b:50773a8e59] & there isn't any difference between 8 & 9, but current bind version (at the time of this post) is 9.2.1 which means that you can fill out this field with 9

[b:50773a8e59]ITF[/b:50773a8e59] & leave it blank , it is useful while you setup your second, third and ... server

I wrote a how to that you can find out when this field is useful:

Thanks again!

Really appreciate your guidance.


[quote:051f5eda2c]it is your own hostname/server FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name) like this: server.serverdomain.net[/quote:051f5eda2c]

If my domain name is abc.com, it will key in server.abc.com, right?

By the way, how could I access to the root? Or could you tell me what is the root for.

I need to install Zend, which was informed that I need to do it from root.

[b:40503ef519]ITF[/b:40503ef519] &
short host name: server
domain: abc.com

then server FQDN: server.abc.com

notice: it should be the same as what you have in /etc/hosts

[b:40503ef519]ITF[/b:40503ef519] & root is the main administration account for servers in Unix/Linux also it is called super user, it has all rights and privileges to handle, manage, modify, install, manipulate and ... everything on a box (system)

for managing a server you can use WHM/Cpanel, local shell and SSH (remote Secure SHell)

if you want to install something first you have to login to your server using SSH by root user.

for Zend, first in a root SSH session run this command:
php -m

if you can see the Zend optimizer in the compiled in modules list then Zend is currently installed.

but if it is not there then run
/scripts/installzendopt

it will install zend for you

Attention: Please read a Unix/Linux Administration book or use expert techs because you can hurt your box in a root SSH session without knowing what is what and what you should do, it is Unix/Linux not Microsoft Windows, and usually there isn't any confirmation for a command, you can remove all of the files in a device without receiving any confirmation notice.
