Ubuntu 14.04 Web Server Tutorial

by on April 29, 2014 at 4:38 pm

In this article, I’m going to be outlining the steps to install and configure a complete web server on a base install of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS server edition.  Not only will you learn how to install a complete web server or “LAMP stack” from the command line, you’ll also understand a little bit more about how each service works.  Ubuntu LTS releases are proven server platforms, and 14.04 brings many needed updates to the LAMP stack, most notably Apache Server 2.4

I personally don’t prefer to install “Web server” package groups during server install time.  I like to install each necessary package one by one to ensure I only have the software that I require for my operation.  This tutorial is also useful if you’re running Ubuntu 14.04 desktop version and want to install a LAMP stack for testing or development purposes.

Ubuntu: install packages from CD

by on January 12, 2013 at 10:18 pm

Recently I installed a system with Ubuntu Server, and neglected to install openssh-server.  While I had terminal access, I didn’t have internet access, so I simply couldn’t run apt-get to install the missing packages.  I was stuck in the data center (virtually stuck, anyway) with a decision:  Spending another 40 minutes re-installing the operating system, or somehow install the packages from the installation disk.  I chose the latter, and while it took more time than just re-installing the system to figure it out, it will surely save me time in the long run as this is most likely not the last time I will encounter this missing package problem.
