Setting Up an Ubuntu Webserver

quick and dirty 😉 i guess you can setup ubuntu yourself 🙂

i use xubuntu (less eyecandy, more performance with less memory)

before i install the server i remove all games, mail clients and such useless things for a webserver.

set the pc name with

sudo gedit /etc/hostname

download lampp from

http://www.apachefriends.org/de/xampp-linux.html#52

set root password with

sudo passwd

extract archive with

tar xvfz xampp-linux-1.7.7.tar.gz -C /opt

start it with

/opt/lampp/lampp start

get your ip with

ifconfig

put your files into

/opt/lampp/htdocs

to access from a windows pc install samba with

sudo apt-get install samba

install samba config gui or use
