I am looking for a very secure and minimal distro to run an Apache production server. It would seem as if Damn Small Linux fits the bill. Is their a specific package of all necessary programs compiled already to do this? I really don't have the experience to build such a specific package myself. I would appreciate a link to this info if it exists. Thank you very much.

Also search this forum for Xampp to find others who use it.
Posted by brianetilley on Nov. 09 2005,17:11I am familiar with xampp, but that is a server package that you add to an existing linux installation. It is the initial installation I am concerned about. I would like to have a very minimal OS...just enough to run the server apps, to reduce potential security problems.

the xampp is designed to be extracted and run from /opt dir anyway...so running it like that would make it sooooo much easier to run
