This tutorial shows how to set up a CentOS 5.1 based server that offers all services needed by ISPs and web hosters: Apache web server (SSL-capable), Postfix mail server with SMTP-AUTH and TLS, BIND DNS server, Proftpd FTP server, MySQL server, Dovecot POP3/IMAP, Quota, Firewall, etc. This tutorial is written for the 32-bit version of CentOS 5.1, but should apply to the 64-bit version with very little modifications as well.

I will use the following software:

* Web Server: Apache 2.2 with PHP 5.1.6
* Database Server: MySQL 5.0
* Mail Server: Postfix
* DNS Server: BIND9 (chrooted)
* FTP Server: Proftpd
* POP3/IMAP server: Dovecot
* Webalizer for web site statistics

In the end you should have a system that works reliably, and if you like you can install the free webhosting control panel ISPConfig (i.e., ISPConfig runs on it out of the box).
