Ubuntu server 12.04 Finishing installation loop
location: linux.com - date: June 19, 2012
I was about to install Ubuntu server (ubuntu-12.04-server-amd64) from USB drive. The installation went well, until the very end - installation instructed me to remove the USB so the system could boot into new OS. I´ve removed it, confirmed and the setup went from aprox 95% to (i guess, it was very quickly) 100% but instead of then rebooting, it went back to the main install menu, "finish the installation" being selected.
Finishing the installation few more times didnt help either and since there is no reboot option in install menu, I had to do a hard reset. As expected, I was not offered to boot Linux after that last reset (only already installed Win7 and Win8).
I am afraid that if I repeat the installation this would happen again. Any ideas?
As you prob can tell from the very beginning, I am very new to Linux :(
FreeNAS (BSD) VS ubuntu server setup
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 29, 2008
Dear Linux users,
Recently I got interested in setting up a NAS (network attached storage). I downloaded a small iso is called FreeNAS. FreeNAS is a distro based off of BSD and is a welcome alternative to commercial NAS setups. FreeNAS has a cool option to install to a external memory stick or other such media. With only a 20GB HD running as storage I went with the thumbdrive option. It took about ten minutes to install, the rest was configure the network service from the webgui. I have tried time and time again to get a server setup with other distros, but with FreeNAS I was finally able to get many services up and running without breaking a sweat. I only have a few qualms with this server setup. It would be much better if I had a second ethernet port on the server so I could get updates and download stuff etc while it was connected to other PCs. Secondly the transfer rate is painfully slow 10kb. this would be ok for up loading/download documents but let's say I wanted to upload a
Having a small home server, BSD or Ubuntu Server?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 18, 2011
Hello everyone! First of all, let me just state that i want to make a small server for my home.. which includes hosting a website and a small FTP server.
Now as far as ease, stability, use, etc.. just overall, which would be more ideal to use for this?
My top choices are FreeBSD and Ubuntu Server.
However, I do not know which of these to go with, since this is my first time setting up a server. I hear BSD is really best for web servers, but I would like to hear what the people at LQ has to say.
Thanks for your help!
EDIT: I know Ubuntu Server would probably be more easy to set up, but how is it in terms of stability and speed?
bash and sh question on Ubuntu Server
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 27, 2009
Hello, I got a server with some users. Their default shell is bash and sh is a link to bash.
If the user switches from bash to sh, everything is changing, the PS1, setup and so on.
My question is, what does sh need to read or have to have the same setup as bash. Every user has .bashrc, .bash_profile, .profile, but seems nothing really matters, because sh is not reading them.
Besides this, there are some settings in /etc/profile which work in bash, but not in sh.
Does anyone know what does sh need to be the same as bash?
[SOLVED] Cannot get PHP scripts to work in Ubuntu Server 12.04
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 26, 2013
Here's what is installed that i will be utilizing:
I have tried multiple ways of getting a PHP login script to work (ie: connects to mysql db pulls login credentials and authenticates user with a session) When i try to get this to work however, i get this generic error on my web browser.
The website encountered an error while retrieving http://intranet/login.php?attempt. It may be down for maintenance or configured incorrectly.
Here is the PHP script along with the HTML form i am using.
$user = $_POST['user'];
$password = $_POST['password'];
$link = mysql_connect('localhost', 'root', 'mypassword') or die('Cant connect to database');
$query = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM users") or die(mysql_error());

Ubuntu Server Vs. Ubuntu Desktop for home file server
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 2, 2010
I'm new to this site and thought i'd start off by saying that I'm new to linux but trying to figure everything out. Next let me explain what I'd like to do. I have both windows (xp and win7) and mac (osx snow leopard) running on my network. I'd like to find a unified system that I could use as a file server. Mainly, I'd like to have it hold music and movies, maybe run some automated backups from a win 7 desktop. I'd also like it to be a print server. I'd like to run the most simple and lightest weight OS for the server os. However, I don't think I have the basic linux knowledge to run Ubuntu Server as it is terminal based. I have installed it on my machine but I feel like im running in circles. I have it installed and can SSH in with my laptop no problem. I feel like I may be better off installing Ubuntu Desktop and removing what I dont need.
Any help / tutorials / anything woudl be greatly appreciated. If someone could give some examples of what they've done or

Ubuntu Server VPS Hosting
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 3, 2008
I'm looking for a starter VPS hosting plan that uses Ubuntu, gives me root (or jailed root), SSH, and lets me install stuff with apt-get. I see that Dreamhost doesn't let me have root or to do apt-get, and that kind of defeats the purpose of using a VPS solution.
In the price range, we want to start in the < $500/year USD ballpark but over time we can scale the site, continue reinvestment in the hosting plan, and move up the VPS plan pyramid and into the dedicated server plan pyramid.
Can anyone recommend someone? Heck, even if you want to start a company and offer this service reliably and in the < $500/year USD ballpark plus have graduated VPS plans after that, we'll consider you.
P.S. Here's what's driving this need. I'm a LAMP developer and my client wants me to build a job seeker starter site that we can grow over time. These job posting/search sites unfortunately require powerful and fast search engines. Integrating Google Site Search is not the best option because
Ubuntu Server vs. Cent OS
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 1, 2009
I know this is an Ubuntu forum, but I am looking for feed back. I am involved in a little adventure that will probably require our own server platform. We already know we are going with linux. My background is more Ubuntu based but I know a lot of servers are CentOS (in the enterprise). I would like to know why you would suggest Ubuntu for a server and what things bother you about Ubuntu as a server.
this server will primarily be a Web Server running the usual Apache, MySQL and PHP. There is always a remote chance something else could come down the line.
[SOLVED] Howto install an Ubuntu server as a virtual server on a Cent OS 5.6 host.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 3, 2011
Is it possible ?
I've tried to install it as fully virtualized, but alot of errors occurs during installation.
Using para-virtualization wont even start the installation. Errors on media contents, something like that.
I'm using Ubuntu server 10.04 LTS.
Trying to install on a CentOS 5.6.
