    I've followed the SUSE 10.1 perfect setup(without ISP config) and everything I wanted to install installed without any problems(apache, php, mysql, proftpd).

    My goal is to have a local web server(i don't have a domain) and have dreamweaver connect through FTP to build a site with PHP and MySQL.

    I'd like to know where I can get some information on how to set this up properly(virtual hosts, users, database permissions, etc.)

    If you just want to host one web site, then put your HTML, PHP, ... files into /srv/www/html (or was it /srv/www/public_html...).
    For creating email accounts have a look here: http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2

    If you want to create an FTP acount, create a user on the shell with /srv/www/html (or /srv/www/public_html) as his homedir, and put
    DefaultRoot ~
    into /etc/proftpd.conf.
    You should also install phpMyAdmin and create your databases and database users with this tool.

    If you plan to create more than one vhost, I strongly recommend to use ISPConfig.
