    I am also interested in knowing the answer to this question, coz I'll get my own dedicated server in coming months. Someone with experience setting up and running a dedicated server, please answer this question :)

    If you know a bit about linux you can go with a LAMP system. This is the basic Linux Apache Mysql PHP configuration.
    You will need to edit configuration files by hand via the linux shell.

    If you are a novice I would suggest a system with a controlcenter like Plesk, Cpanel, etc
    This way you can set everything up via a webinterface and is much easier (but you pay a bit more for the license)

    However if you are going to run a tube site you will also need to setup ffmpeg to encode your video's, and you will probably want to run apache & lighttpd side by side on a unique ip each. This way you can have apache run the php webpages (dynamic content) and have lighttpd do the video streaming. The big advantage of lighttpd over apache is that it supports resuming (and thus you can skip in a video). Apache itself cannot do this and your viewers will be frustrated that they cant skip forward in video's.

    Personally I would go with the LAMP dedicated and choose for a Debian system. This is because I am very fluent in debian and I HATE rpm based distributions like centos, mandrake, redhat, etc. Then I would setup ffmpeg & lighttpd on a 2nd IP address to get everything running.

    Shameless plug: We also sell mainly VPS server but can also do dedicated servers (pricing on request) and are willing to help you setup your tube site; http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...s-eu-us-windows-linux-1000mbit-unmetered.html

    If you dont know much about Linux. I would suggest you install CentOS + a control panel like Cpanel or directadmin then it will be much easier for you to control the server after that. Some provider offer Direct Admin free of charge :)

    easiest way is to install Centos 5 or 5 32 bit and install DirectAdmin for extra 6$ per month. In that case everything will be smoothly and i guarantee that even a newbie can run a dedi without a problem with this sollution.

    I'd choose CentOS 6 and Plesk (can't see cPanel there).

    BTW, all those toolbars... very PPI friendly environment you have there. :)

    Personally i use Debian 7 minimal, then I drop a LEB (Low End Box) admin script and setup Nginx, PHP, MySQL and a mail server if I need one. Just google "lowendbox admin script". You will find a few. They help you setup shit faster than manually. Also this setup with nginx instead of apache and without CPanel has better performance. If you're not comfortable with the linux console and the linux setup process then just pick CentOS + CPanel or you will go nuts.

    So, I got a Debian server and I don't know how to setup shit on it. I chose Debian 8 as a OS on it. I am using Cloudflare for the nameservers but I don't know if I am doing everything right or not. I don't know what to do now. Can anyone guide me through the process of setting up a new Debian dedicated server, or point me to a good tutorial. I've been reading tutorials for last 24 hours, but I cannot seem to find a solution for me. I would really appreciate the help.
    Thanks
