I rented a virtual ubuntu server and am trying to setup a web application. I am working from ubuntu.
I know how to use the command line, but it is slow and as a visual person, I prefer graphical interfaces. So I connected with nautilus via ssh and was now able to browse the directories graphically. But my permissions are just those of "other", so I cannot do much without o+rwx.
What tools do you use to do setup and administrate your servers? Should I write code locally rather then directly on the server and rsync it?
EDIT: It is NOT a production server, I am simply fiddling around there.
