Ubuntu Server vs others
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 16, 2009
I know that topic title probably makes some people sick - so sorry for bring it back to life.
Anyway, I love using Ubuntu Desktop as it make it so easy for someone with a M$ background like me to get into the swing of things. However, after speeding a whole week learning as much as I could I had to drop the system because I was spending all my time learning and no time actually getting things done. That was about 2 months ago.
I'm back, but this time I need to learn how to manage a server with a linux distro. No GUI. So this brings up the question as to whether Ubuntu server is as good as the other distros like Fedora. I know Ubuntu rocks on the desktop - but what about servers?
So to answer that I figured that I would ask two questions that should let me know.
Is the number of documentation articles (and quality) as good as another more business styled linux when it comes to webservers?
(I have a lot to learn!)
Is the package count as high as the other distros? I remember readin
Ubuntu Server vs. Oracle Enterprise Linux
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 15, 2010
Having been a long-time Linux supporter, it was a no-brainer for me to push Linux as the OS when it was time to move my company's website(s) from an external host to an internal server. My company ponied up the bucks for an HP Proliant DL180 G5 server (this was about a year ago) upon which I installed Slackware 12.1 (I kinda default to Slackware, although in the past I've also used RedHat on the server and openSUSE on the desktop).
Well, it's now time to upgrade the OS on the server. Perhaps I'm a little late to the game on this, but I just recently found out about Oracle Enterprise Linux 5.5. Bad Oracle ju-ju aside, it looked to be a very good and stable server distro, especially when you consider the availability of Oracle support for it. So I've since installed OEL to a non-production server and have been testing it out. It looks to be a good match for my needs.
However, since installing OEL on my test server I've installed Ubuntu Desktop 10.10 on my home desktop (a 1.86ghz I

PEAR not working on Ubuntu server
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 3, 2009
I am trying to setup PEAR so I can send email via php/Pear on my intranet website.
Anyway so I have PEAR installed using the web interface that it comes with and I installed the Mail module
I then tested it and get this error

Is Ubuntu Server good OS ?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 11, 2011
I've been using Ubuntu Desktop for several months now, and I've been very happy with it. However I just purchased an HP server that came with Windows 2008. I want to use the server to host my website.
Is Ubuntu Server a good choice for someone thats never setup a server ? Is Ubuntu Server a good choice compared to other linux Distros ? What are some of the benefits and cons of using a Linux Server vs Windows ? Any advice is really appreciated
How to find my Apache version on Ubuntu server
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 21, 2009
This is a newbie question but I've searched for like 1 hour, and most online resources point to
But! that command just does not work on my Ubuntu server. In fact, I can not even find a service with such name; it looks like such command works on Red Hat or other distros, not Ubuntu. How do I suppose to find the Apache version?
Just playing around I was able to get the information doing this by myself
/usr/sbin/apache2ctl status | grep Version
but that's kind of a workaround I guess, more than a real command...
BTW, mine is 2.2.11
Ubuntu server vs. NAS box
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 16, 2013
I am deciding between a Qnap 4 bay NAS box or Ubuntu Server to fulfill needs for:
Creating a large fault tolerant RAID array with SMB sharesMedia serving to desktop and Western Digital TV Livetorrent, ftp and perhaps other remote file servicesNetwork services (DHCP, firewall, etc.)...total replacement of a dd-wrt wireless router would be nice
It looks to me like the Qnap device will do about 90% of what I want, but of course, they are not cheap, upgradable, or expandable. I also worry that even the higher end model with a 2.0 GHz ARM CPU and 512MB of memory will be overloaded with all the roles I want to implement. But, they do look very simple to administer, and time is money too.
Here is the hardware I have now for an Ubuntu server:
mATX case with 300w SeaSonic bronze PSU, 6x 3.5" bays and 2x 5.25" baysAMD Athlon II X2 250 (3.0 GHz dual core)ECS AM2+ mATX board with 4GB DDR2 memory (effective max due to cost), 6x SATA II headers, 1x PATA header, 16x PCIe, 1x PCIe, 2x PC
Difference between Ubuntu Desktop and Ubuntu server
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 10, 2011
There is a Bit of confusion in my mind regarding Ubuntu desktop and Ubuntu server.. according to i think Ubuntu server is come with all the complete server package there is nothing to do more to install any services like Appache web server, sambha etc.. it contain all the services.. on the other hand in Ubuntu desktop we have a blank OS without any server services we can manually install all the services to use them.If i am right or some extra information except all above then please tell me in detail.

Ubuntu Server and Windows question. SOLVED
location: linux.com - date: February 10, 2011
Hey everyone, I have a question. I am currently a college student and Microsoft IT guy. I had a question regarding Ubuntu server security vs windows. I recently added a gui to my ubuntu server because I don't know what I am doing otherwise, lol.
But while I was searching for information on ubuntu server I saw a lot of people saying how guis are normally considered a security risk, and that a lot of people use something like webmin or whatever else to remotely log in with a gui.
So my question is this, how does a gui as a security risk compare to using a windows server which is all gui based ? Is it the same? Is there something with linux guis that makes them less safe then windows? Or is it safer then windows but still a risk?
Please help with my confusion, lol.
