We have no clients on our dedicated server.
They are still safely on our old reseller account.
There is no way I'm opening the dedicated server until I'm ready for business.
And yes, I'm wishing to gain the experience.
It might be a while before I open the server.
Then again I learn fast. So I'd say give me a few days, maybe a week, and I will be more familiar with things.
Thanks for the advice though.
Perhaps I should have gone for a VPS.
By the way, just a quick update.
I did mess things up pretty badly.
I'm glad of one thing. At least no customers were harmed.
But my misconfiguration caused the server to crash.
I had to request my server provider to reboot and reflash the servers.
They are currently onto this and in around 6-8 hours hopefully we'll be up and running again.
I know, it sounds like I'm useless. Well this is the first time I've used root access. I'm only 19...never done this before.
I enjoy learning. And I will only open the server for business once I'm confident that I won't mess things up any more.
