Default How to build a webserver, centos 6, videos

Hello all,

I am going to post videos on a youtube channel showing the steps I am
taking in putting together a new server.
I am by no means an expert and it is intended for people who just want
to get a gist of what it entails.

channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/WebserverVideos

The first part is done, getting the server and putting it together.
Along with my thoughts on the build.
Future parts coming in the next few weeks will include comprehensive
steps dealing with ipmi, raid 1 arrays, centos 6
as a host, centos 6 as guests...dns servers, webserver guest (mail,
apache, etc).
Selinux..

and the whole shebang.

I will be doing a video of the installation at the datacenter which
should be cool for those who have never been
in one to do it.

Comments open, but moderated.
This is just a personal webserver project and will cover the steps I
take (and why) in building it.

I will be adding a 3550 cisco (as soon as I figure it all out) as a
switch for my two servers with a full step by step
of updating and configuring it.

Feel free to tell me if you see anything completely wrong...or something
I might forget.
I'll do my best to make it time effective to watch it and learn.

Interesting video, but I think the lighting needs to be brighter,
particularly at the beginning when you were showing the ports
on the end of the machine - I couldn't see them.

Thanks. ALthough I have the software and a way to record the install and config, I had nothing
special for the computer build, I tried to add what light I could (did it at night), and used
the computer webcam to do it. It got darker when I rendered it though, tried to save space.
Guess I could have played with the brightness in the video program.

Its more for someone who is using dedicated or shared hosting and is afraid of making the move to
colo. I wanted to show it is easier to put together a server than your own home computer.
Later I am going to show a much cheaper 1,400 dollar server that is already in the datacenter.

I am definitely not going to be on TV with my skills, but hope it helps someone make the jump.

Wow, "A Fifth of Beethoven" in the sound track! :-)

I think this kind of video is always useful. However, I would suggest
you make a special effort to speak very slowly and clearly.

True (and you just showed your age).
I never did a vid before and was first attempt.
Am thinking about redoing audio.
Just wanted to show people that building a server is not that hard and
if they are thinking about it, they should jump in.

the webcam microphone was not so good and it was really early in the
morning...(or late in the evening I should say).

next vid gonna be more 60s stuff background music...in about a few hours
from now.

you really should use a lapel microphone for that sort of thing, and
good lighting is critical to decent video.

one approach is to not talk while recording the video, and do the speech
as a voice over, recorded seperately...
