    I've just started a new job and we have a cobalt RAQ 3 server which I have never used before (never used Linux either). I am going to develop a database app but they don't have PHP or MySQL installed on the server.

    I've looked in the manual and it seems to be quite straightforward as long as I have the software but it's a live server and I dont want to mess around with it.

    Our hosting company says they'll do it for 80 an hour!! Is this a con?

    How smoothly do these installs go? WIll it just be a straight case of pointing to the file and pressing install?

    I dont want to bring the whole server down.

    Any advice you have will be great

    Thanks Kerry
