Falko Timme writes "Ubuntu is primarily known as one of the most popular desktop distributions. But you can also use it for servers! This guide shows how to set up a web, mail, and ftp server with Ubuntu 5.04 "The Hoary Hedgehog" and demonstrates the details with the help of 21 screenshots. The installation is easy as 1-2-3 and allows even complete Linux newbies to dive into the world of Linux servers. The tutorial covers the installation of Apache + SSL + PHP, Postfix with SMTP-AUTH and TLS, BIND9, Courier-IMAP(s) and Courier-POP3(s), Proftpd, MySQL, Webalizer, Quota, etc."
