Bare bones server distro?

I want to have the most bare bones system possible, hopefully being able to have it on a usbkey => I want to have apache 2.x, php 5.x, mysql 4.x, phpMyAdmin, [some sort of cpanel like program?], and a simple gui.  I want to have the smallest overhead possible.  Whats the best way to accomplish this?

Re: Bare bones server distro?

um..install arch base. install apache, php, mysql, and phpmyadmin, and probably openssh..

Re: Bare bones server distro?

you may be able to remove one ore two packages from arch-base, selectively, carefully.

You might try LFS too...

Re: Bare bones server distro?

1.  Is there a good cpanel alternative which is freeware?
2.  If I built myself a bare system with a decent mobo, cpu, ram - would I have a decent server? Or would self-serving be really crappy in terms of uptime, speed, etc.
