FreeBSD Installation

Before I started the installation, first thing I asked in my mind was ‘Why FreeBSD?’. And now, I think I know the answer : FreeBSD is the powerful UNIX-like operating system derived from BSD Unix especially for server. FreeBSD is easy for me as newbie to learn because there are tons of source for me to learn about it. Besides that, for build some server I only need to update my ports collection once, and after that, I could install the software that I need. The FreeBSD ports collection is a system for installing programs that uses scripts to automate the process of building software from source code. The ports collection simplifies the process of building software, but new users are often left in the dark once the build process is complete. This is especially true in the case of server applications. Server applications require custom configuration, and that’s why I should learn about it.
