I suggest we keep out all specific configuration and simply try to inform the reader of server-usefull applications. There are numerous well maintained articles on ssh, ssl, LAMP, cups, samba and other services you'd like to have on your server, so I suggest to simply list these applications one may want to have on his / her server (along with a basic explenation of the program / service and the use of it on a server). We can then link to the atricles already available.
 
  
This will prevent having several wikis on installing / configuring LAMP / cups and other server choises while still maintaining a complete server guide.

== Structure ==
 
 
Restructure suggestion, not structured towards the role of the server (web / database / file / router etc.) but structured towards specific parts of a server, explaining the role and use of the specific service.
 
 
* Introduction (to servers)
 
* Minimal required set-up (core installation + SSH for headless server)
 
* Web Services
 
** Apache
 
** PHP
 
** MySQL
 
** SSL
 
** E-Mail
 
** FTP
 
* Network Services
 
** Cups
 
** DHCP

I would suggest a structure along the lines of this:
 
*Initial Server setup (ie core arch install with ssh attached)
 
*Standard LAMP setup (the current server wiki just does this bit but not much more imo) you may also want to add a bit about perl for this as some people will use perl rather than php and there are some useful tools that rely on perl for linux.
 
*Include phpmyadmin (note it relies on php)
 
From here you will have a good base to install other features and those can be pick and choose features.
 
*Recommend not using SELinux as tbh its a bitch, add a guide for it by all means tho.
 
*Add backup protocols
 
*Add monitoring
 
- Nmis
 
- possibly SNMP?
