Dani, you have so much to learn. There are many issues to be considered when creating a webserver, but all are within your grasp. I suggest a trip to your local bookstore to get a copy of "Running Linux". Read every page, every single page. Then you will know the answer to your question, and where to find more answers to the questions you will certainly have after reading the book.
You will need to know about filesystems, text editors (VIM Emacs Joe Jed), TCP/IP, DNS, PPP, web server configuration, security, users and groups, make, /usr/bin/sh, etc. The list of links I would supply you with for "information about the steps of setting up a server(LINUX) so that people can find a certain URL address? " would quite large. I would also suggest locating a local user group in your area and join a newbies list for your Linux distribution (I've found these to be the best behaved and most informative lists on the internet). Good luck, feel free to ask me anything you like off the list. I'll try to be as helpfull as I can. DAve Dani wrote: > Hi all, > > I appologise if this is off topic but I don't know who to ask.
