I'm wondering if someone could help me out here. I want configure my

Apache
MySQL
PHP
Postfix
Samba

I know I can set these all up on one server, but I also want to setup
a DNS server. My question is should I use a separate machine to do my
DNS? Or is it okay to do it all on one machine? And is it okay to do
all of these on one machine?

It depends on whether it will be a production machine accessible from the Internet.


If this is true, I'd say that having all that server software installed in the same machine is risky, to say the least, from a security POV. Apache configuration is difficult enough to get it right (although we've got SELinux) and PHP has suffered from exploits in the past.

I would just install each different service into a different machine (either real machines or Xen domains).
