SoHoServer is a general purpose server based on the recent release of Debian "sarge.". The preinstalled and configured server software includes Apache2, PHP4, Perl, Mysql, Proftpd, Bind, DHCPd, Postfix, Dovecot, Shorewall, Squid, DansGuardian, Webmin, and Usermin.
Like other MEPIS products, SoHoServer is easy to try, easy to install, and easy to use. It comes preconfigured with defaults that "just work" in most situations. Early testers report that even someone with limited server experience can have a MEPIS SoHoServer up and running in as little as fifteen minutes.
Test 02 has updated preconfigs, in response to user feedback. The latest security updates have been added and the MEPIS tools have been updated to the latest versions.
