To set up:
- I am a newbee in Linux.
- I have a big windows background.
Yes, I agree, some packages have quite understandable configuration files. My goal is to set up a Web & Mail server for my family. I have no problem to learn. For example, I have no problem with PHP and MySQL config files. But I am stuck on virtual domain in Apache (I try to configure Apache as www.mydomain.org and someprefix.mydomain.org point to 2 distinct web site). Sendmail configuration scary me to the point I try to find another Mail server more easy to configure.
A linux newbee.
