Deploying a FreeBSD 6.2 Server
I will assume that if you are reading this, that you have completed the installation steps described in the previous document Installing FreeBSD 6.2. This document will show the steps to take to deploy a FreeBSD server. This server will have the latest stable from the Apache 2.2 tree, PHP 5, MySQL 5.0, Sendmail with SMTP-AUTH, Webmail, Bind DNS, SNMP, synchronized local time, and Webmin. I have also included steps to take to build a network graphing solution with Rrdtool/Cacti, and this part can be considered optional. This document is basically, "the way I do it", and I hope you find it useful.
