I am looking for a decent Virtual server running linux.
I already have one but I want a second one for technical reasons related
to search engines.
I don't care what flavour of linux it runs as long as the following work
out of the box from the start with the minimum of configuration.
I have been trying a second server from vaserv.com who offer the choice
of installing various flavours and distros but none of them seem to be
complete or easily configurable. I can install any of them and have gone
though a list and not found them fit for my purposes.
For example, on one distro I found mysql wasn't there. No problem I
thought I'll install it. Then I find it insists on having a DBI module
from perl and CPAN doesn't work to install perl modules!
Them another version uses cPanel so I install a clean version and I
cannot even connect to cPanel.
I just want something that works with the minimum of fuss.
These are fairly standard things to want on a server so please can
anyone recommend somewhere that doesn't cost the earth and provides a
