    I've installed OS X Server Leopard and all seems well.

    Basically I want to use this machine to host a few websites (web, FTP, MySQL, mail, and DNS). I have a static IP. I need to know how to create name servers for this machine so it can manage DNS. Also, when I add a site in the Server Admin application, will it automatically add the entries to the DNS for me? Any tips for a beginner?

    Thanks

    As a thought have a look at the video tutorials available here. I found the $25 great value and my OS X Server Mac Mini is running as clean as a whistle thanks to me being able to "look over someone's shoulder" while I set it up.

    As they say, if you get the DNS correct everything works like a charm, but if you don't ...

    Hope this helps.
    Cheers

    Hi, I'm not exactly sure about the DNS but there are some great free video tutorials here that I have been watching to learn about using a Mac server:

    It is a series, scroll down the page to view each section.

    There is also an episode telling you how to set up a dynamic IP address with a domain name for those interested.
