This is a detailed description about how to set up an OpenSUSE 11 server that offers all services needed by ISPs and 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 OpenSUSE 11, but should apply to the 64-bit version with very little modifications as well.

Andreas Jaeger: Since both Coolo and Michl are on vacation for two weeks, I’m a bit more involved with the openSUSE distribution. Besides announcing the openSUSE 11.1 roadmap, I was busy to stabilize the factory trees and get an installable distribution after quite some major changes have been checked into factory.
