Hi guys have been away from Ubuntu for a little while so am a little bit rusty
My question is when I setup a new Ubuntu Server install what sources should I add to get the best packages?
what sources do you add for your sever builds and can you remind me of the process of adding sources
Ubuntu Server, best way to locally display video stream from IP camera.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 28, 2011
I'm deploying an Ubuntu server running on an industrial Kontron SBC to provide OpenVPN services and a ZoneMinder (DVR) for 4 IP-based cameras (Axis 219FD) for a remote (geographically speaking) installation of a recycling technology (many IP devices on the subnet, OpenVPN required to talk to all of them securely. The cameras are for quality control and process feedback). On the prototype I currently have in the field, I built an Intel-based server using desktop components purchased from NewEgg; it is running Ubuntu 8.10 desktop (Gnome). This box has a locally-connected monitor that displays the video streams from the 4 IP-based cameras using Firefox (a simple webpage pointed at localhost that displays the mpeg video streams). This has worked reasonably well, but we are having intermittent hardware lock-ups that require reboot. The processors are full throttle running the ZoneMinder application, resolving and recording 4 high-res video streams. I haven't been able to nail down the
Is Ubuntu Server the best platform for learning Hadoop?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 15, 2014
I'm trying to learn MapReduce and Hadoop. Is Ubuntu Server the best platform to learn it, or does it matter?
Is installing Hadoop (and Pig, Hive, Spark, etc) for Ubuntu Server easier than for Ubuntu Desktop or on a mac? Does Juju with installing Hadoop? Does it help with connecting and setup for cloud computing sites like AWS?
Ubuntu Server as home computer
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 1, 2009
I am watching most of my tv programmes via websites and other content that is played in Firefox, Totem or similar.
I am therefore considering setting up a local network in the house, with a main computer that I will plug into the main HD tv (probably end up buying Dell Zino HD). This computer will be on most of the day and I was going to use it as a file server and back up location for our laptops.
Now the question is should I install:
1) Ubuntu desktop edition
2) Ubuntu server edition
Obviously we are a small home so the idea of the server edition might be "shooting" over the goal? The main jobs for the main computer will be to show content on our TV and make available music, video and files for the laptops and the other TV-sets.
What I would like with a server would be the ability to define user rights and sharing centrally (we change our laptops every 6 months), to obtain something like what I had with the Evil Empires Small Bussiness
Best way to stream media from ubuntu server 10.04 to PS3
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 18, 2010
I am wondering what the best/lightest weight way to stream media to a PS3 from a machine running Ubuntu server 10.04.
I saw MediaTomb, but I don't know how well it'll work if I've got 3-4 VMs running, as well as Samba, SSH, etc on the same server.
Does anyone have any experience with this sort of thing?
Best way to set up a shared drive for a company using Linux (eg. Ubuntu Server)? [closed]
location: linuxexchange.com - date: January 1, 1970
I am trying to find out the best way to set up a shared drive for a company which has 50+ users in 3 office locations in different cities.
They basically need a drive with a common folder to store company documents (eg. /home/company-docs/) plus a personal folder for each user (eg. /home/username/mydocs/). They will mainly access the drive from Windows 7 machines and few Ubuntu machines.
They cannot use an external application such as Dropbox, Google Drive and so on (for regulatory and compliance reasons).
I am currently using Ubuntu server 14.04 with ProFTPD, and the machines access the server drive using WinSCP or Filezilla. For permissions I am using ACL.
The tricky part is the folder structure so everyone can see the common folder (/home/company-docs) and the personal folder (/home/username/mydocs) in their home directory.
Using ProFTPD I can chroot jail the users to their home directory and there mydocs/ folder is created (using skel).
But how can I give them access to t
Best way to start Zookeeper automatically on Ubuntu Server 14.04?
location: linuxexchange.com - date: March 13, 2015
I have installed Zookeeper using sudo apt-get install zookeeper on an Ubuntu server 14.04. I am having trouble understanding how to configure Zookeeper to start automatically, on boot. Also, I can manually start it successfully only with root priviledges.
I have looked at the documentation from the official page and it seems the solution is to make sure the zkServer.sh or something similar is run at start-up. I have been searching on how to execute scripts on start-up on Ubuntu, and found a few approaches: using Upstart, using System V, Cron jobs and even found a Python utility a kind soul shared for watching processes and restarting them when they crash. Given I am a beginner in Linux programming and spent way too much time working on Windows (where this kind of situation it's pretty straight forward to solve!), all seem a bit complicated and not sure which one is the best?
Any help will be much appreciated.
Ubuntu VS Ubuntu Server VS Fedora VS Suse
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 2, 2009
Hello every one
I am setting up a webserver, I am paying a lot of money to host my website, it is only a personal website with some videos. I did some research but realized how sophisticated and hard setting up a server could be.
I am torn between Ubuntu, Suse and Fedora. I heard many good things about Ubuntu but not sure what is the difference between Ubuntu and Ubuntu Server.
I read online that Suse is not the best OS for running a server, and I am not familiar with Fedora.
For some reason I am with Ubuntu, but it is just my guts so I need a more accurate answer.
I am a bit confused, I really want to learn one of these OS but not sure were to start and not sure which one is better for my web server.
I appreciate any help
Thank in advance
Ubuntu Server Edition vs. CentOS?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 11, 2009
I've had dedicated servers hosting my websites for years now, though I admit I have no server administration or management experience. My dedicated servers are currently run off of CentOS 64-bit, though I am interested in using Ubuntu Server Edition 64-bit.
I'd like to compare and contrast the two, in terms of performance, ease of use, stability, and security. I know they are both Linux distributions but the two are based off of two different ones: Red Hat & Debian.
One day I would love to learn how to fully administer and manage my server myself. That's one of the reasons I'm leaning towards Ubuntu, because of its documentation and large community support forum. I just don't want to lose performance, security, or stability by switching from CentOS to Ubuntu Server Edition.
Can anyone really compare and contrast the two in a server environment? I've used Ubuntu as a desktop OS before, though I really didn't like it as much as openSUSE. Not only that but Ubuntu di
Ubuntu Server Or CentOS
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 20, 2011
Hey guys I am soon to deploy a new server for quite a bit of things such as web serving, Game Servers, and File Hosting. I have one main question is whether to go with Ubuntu Server 10.10 or CentOS 5.5 in terms of reliability, uptime, expandability, and the most professional one to use. It would be great to read some of your opinions. Also if you would like you can also post what you think is the best overall server operating system.... Thank you in advance
