    well i'm Niels i'm from holland so dont mind the horrible english.
    what i need to do is put a server online.

    I'm an intermediate computer user and i have all the normal knowledge abouth a computer.(for the most Windows) but i'm a fast learner. :)
    and i'm crackin my head for a few months over ubuntu server.
    but my knowledge just isn't at the level that it suppused to be needed.
    so if anyone has the urge to assist me during the installation you're welcome.

    I'll give u a quick review of my plans...

    my primary goal is running a website with a database of movie's sound's and art work. i found and created multiple ordinary things who urgently needed to be exposed.

    i know that i need to use Apache, MySQL and PHP
    and i only want to use the necesarry substance.
    further i realy dont have a clue what to do

    PLEASE HELP, Namaste

    Then we create an ftp group (ftpgroup) and user (ftpuser) that all our virtual users will be mapped to. Replace the group- and userid 2001 with a number that is free on your system:

    so i change this
    groupadd -g 2001 ftpgroup
    useradd -u 2001 -s /bin/false -d /bin/null -c "pureftpd user" -g ftpgroup ftpuser

    To This
    groupadd -g 2002 ftpgroup
    useradd -u 2002 -s /bin/false -d /bin/null -c friso -g ftpgroup ftpuser

    or how should i change it...
