Ubuntu Servers :: Turning 10.04 Desktop Into A Web Server?

Oct 28, 2010

turning a Ubuntu 10.04 desktop into a server. Ok, so let me start off with my goal. I am using this machine for hosting only 1 website using joomla, php, mysql, and apache. I want a desktop version because I dont like the black and white terminal.

At this point I have successfully installed all Ubuntu 10.04 desktop and all updates.

When searching around for this solution, I found that I could run the command sudo apt-get install ubuntu-server and get all the features the server edition has. When running this command it comes back telling me that it cannot be found. I also found that both the server and desktop edition are the same but the desktop edition comes with all the extras that I will need to delete. I also found out that I will need to use lamp on the server to get php and all the other server stuff, but I also found that some people recommended that I install the server apps using the synaptic search. My question is, what route should I take to turn this ubuntu 10.04 desktop into a dedicated web server. (Not Test Server). Remember, I would like to stay with the desktop and not black and white terminal.

Ubuntu Servers :: 10.04 Desktop Vs Cloud Server Edition

Jul 15, 2010

What's the difference in terms of scalability? We would be hosting videos and FOSS collaboration tools (wiki, forums, etc.) on 4 separate servers. If I install the cloud server, I will need to install the GUI anyways. The servers are all brand new

- 2x Intel Xeon quad cores 2.4 GHz
- 12 GB DDR3 RAM
- 4 Ethernet ports

What benefits would cloud server provide over desktop and vice versa?

Ubuntu Servers :: Add Xubuntu-desktop To Server And Then Open RDP ?

Feb 19, 2011

I was wondering if it would be secure to add xubuntu-desktop to my server and then open RDP so my colleuges can jump in and out as they need to. Would it bring any major security risks to my server to do this?I have heard there are ways to put a chroot around an RDP session, so it is like logging into a virtual machine, how would I go about that?

Server :: Get Hyperthreading Without Turning On Any Part Of ACPI?

Mar 22, 2011

Some time ago I've opened a thread about ACPI - as it turned out - killing my server. You may read it here if interested.My question is how can I enable Hyperthreading support in my kernel without enabling any part of ACPI?(Boot flag acpi=ht causes the same issue as described in above thread, so enabling any part of ACPI in any manner is not desirable)My kernel:

[root@sheridan ~]# uname -a
Linux sheridan.******** #1 SMP Mon Feb 7 07:06:44 UTC 2011 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Ubuntu Servers :: Can Server Tools Be Adapted To Desktop Version?

Aug 12, 2010

Is it possible to install some administrative tools under the System -> Administration tab of the Desktop edition of Ubuntu, so that xinetd, chkconfig, netservices, etc can be controlled? I am left with an uneasy feeling about my Desktop version, and finding that it is running services that I really do not want to allow. Apache2 is running for example, but I really am not a web server (yet). Another service is strigi, the indexer. I prefer to have it turned off at times.What administrative tools does Ubuntu offer that can be placed in the sys-admin tab?

Ubuntu Servers :: 9.10 Server - How To Setup Remote Desktop / VNC Via SSH + Command Line

Feb 21, 2010

I am playing around with the idea of being able to use a cloud or instance based service to install Ubuntu 9.10 Server. This will enable me to have remote access via SSH command line.So far, I've installed Ubuntu 9.10 Server + Ubuntu Desktop to a virtual machine. I can access this via SSH and locally via the desktop. However, in the real environment the only access I am going to have initially is via SSH.

I would like to be able to connect using Windows Remote Desktop or VNC (whichever is easier and most importantly - most secure) to the machine.. even though the desktop is on there, I need to somehow configure the remote access all from the command line.I've had a read of various forums and have been trawling support forums for days but can't find a working solution for 9.10 Server or that fits my situation above where I will not have any physical access to the desktop or machine to configure remote desktop. It all has to be done via SSH/command line.

Ubuntu Servers :: Slow Failure Of Network Connections In Server (as Compared To Desktop)?

Jan 13, 2010

I have two ubuntu boxes. One is a 9.04 desktop edition and the other is a 9.10 server edition I am working on some code that needs to be highly tolerant of bad network connections. It sends transactions to a central database, but when the network is not available, it caches them locally to retry later.

I have the code working beautifully on my desktop box. but when I test it on this other box (the one running server edition) there is a HUGE DELAY every time it tries and fails to send a transaction to the database when the network is down.

I tested a little further, and I found that if i unplug my network cable and run ping somehost on the desktop, it fails instantly saying "ping: unknown host somehost" But if I unplug the cable on the server box and run the same ping command it lingers for about 40 seconds before the ping fails.

Does anybody have any idea why this might be happening? Is this a 9.04 vs 9.10 difference? Is this a desktop vs server difference? Is there some package I can install, or some config setting I can change that will make the server box insta-fail just like the desktop does?

Ubuntu :: Create A Dvd That Contains Server Desktop And Alternate Install Opptions - And All Four Main Desktop Environments (gnome - Kde - Xfce - Lxde) And Unity?

Aug 12, 2011

is it would be possible create a Ubuntu dvd that contains the ubuntu server desktop and alternate install opptions, as well as all four main desktop environments (gnome, kde, xfce, lxde) and unity. since much of the data is redundant between each version cd's it would probably all fit on one disk. then all that would be needed is two disks one for 32 bit and another for 64 bit. i really think that this could work.

Ubuntu :: Turning Off The Unnecessary

Dec 2, 2010

Having just successfully installed fallout 3 (yippee), one question arises.

Is it possible to turn off (and eventually back on) all superfluous process during gaming ? As an ex-win xp user, there was an app called "game booster", i think, that did this.

The process i have in mind are things like fancy compiz settings, dockbar X, and any upgrades that might be taking place in the background.

Again, it is important that i can restart these functions after kicking super-mutant ***.

Ubuntu :: 11.04 - Monitor Turning Off

May 5, 2011

I just did a clean install of Ubuntu 11.04 on my PC. Installation went smoothly, and I can boot it and log in.

If i leave it there running, nothing happens, but as soon as i try to run an application (Firefox, Update Manager, etc), the screen turns off and I can't do anything else anymore except reboot.

I was able to apply the latest updates using apt-get update from the terminal (one of the very few apps that doesn't turn the screen off), but can't get rid of the problem, what can i do?

My PC is a Intel Core i5 PC with a Nvidia Gefore 210 graphics card.

I was able to install the proprietary drivers for Nvidea, no change. Both Unity and "Ubuntu Classic" have this issue

Ubuntu Servers :: Windows DHCP Server - Multiple Boot Servers ?

Apr 1, 2011

I'm curious if anybody can shed some light for me in this department. We're in a large environment with a Windows DHCP Server. We have been tinkering with LTSP on Edubuntu as thin and fat clients. It works great, but right now we just have 1 server handling the lab, which works fine unless we want to expand, which may be very possible.

These are the instructions I received:
Login to your windows server and load the DHCP configuration screen
Create a DHCP reservation for the MAC address you obtained
Add the configuration options below to enable the machine to boot from the LTSP server
017 Root Path: /opt/ltsp/i386
066 Boot Server Host Name: <ip address>
067 Bootfile Name: ltsp/arch/pxelinux.0 # Specify CPU architecture in place of 'arch', for instance 'i386'

From: [url]

I'm curious, what if I want to have multiple Ubuntu servers on the network that I want to have bootable? For example, let's say I have 3 labs, and 3 servers. Server A to Lab A, Server B to Lab B, and Server C to Lab C. I want all C's computers to boot to C, and B to B, A to A, etc.

1 - How would I add multiple entries on the Windows DHCP Server to allow all 3 (A B C) servers to boot?

2 - How would I be able to isolate the clients so ONLY Lab A clients boot to Server A, etc?

Ubuntu :: Randomly Turning Off Computer?

Jul 16, 2010

I have been using Ubuntu 10.4 trouble free for the last week or so with the exception of one problem. Without warning, my computer shuts off. When I turn the computer back on, it skips the log in page. The turn off is very abrupt and happens without warning. It happened twice when I first installed the OS and has not happened at all until today when it happened twice again. Is this a common issue. It seems like a very odd way for a computer to crash.
