Fedora / Apache Contract Admin

Jobs Hello, we're a local Austin Internet App Developer in need of someone to take care of our Dedicated Fedora server. We are particularly interesting in optimizing performance of the server, db, and web server.

Candidate must have extensive experience maintaining/optimizing/hacking a linux/mysql/php/apache setup.

Price is not so much a concern to us as we require just a few hours of work per week; however, what is important is finding someone with extensive experience, knowledge, and speed. We have had a few people perform these duties for us, stiff us with a bill, and leave us worse off, e.g. with apache not running, etc. The bills also reflected a lot of "looking into" how to do something. For a simple setup such that we have, surely "looking into" how to do something should be very minimal for the right person... We're not running a Google cluster!

Thank you,

Jason Liebe
