I wanted to start experimenting with ubuntu server. I installed a minimal virtual machine from ubuntu server 64bit 9.04 on my mac running 10.6.1 with WMware Fusion. It is command line only.
Here are the things I managed to get accomplished:
Install VMwareTools, install ssh, set a static ip, mount and link a shared directory with my mac, enable read/write permissions in shared directory from both machines.
I'm not looking for guides on how to do the installs, I can do that research myself. I'm looking for some recommendations on apps that accomplish the things I would like to do with the server.
I'm looking to host a web server, ftp server, stream media, file share. I'd also like to install popular web technologies such as java, php, phython, mysql.
Any recommendations/advice for first install, first time using a cmd line only os user...
