I've just ordered a dedicated server with Ubuntu server, but they've come back to me to say that they've had trouble installing Ubuntu server on these particular servers.
As an alternative, they're offering to install Debian. My concern is that I come from a windows background and have spent the last month reading and playing with Ubuntu Server in vmware. I'll be running a small handful of sites on the server and will rely on the apt-get and package installer in webmin to get things set up and for administration. I'll dabble in the shell a little, but only when needed.
Should I go with a different host that can offer Ubuntu, or will I be okay with Debian?
I will be dropping my shared-hosting plan and ordering a small VPS as soon as I can decide on which operating sytem to use. It seems that most companies offer the following choices: Suse, Debian, Fedora and CentOS.
I freely admit that I am a full-fledged n00b when it comes to linux and will be learning as I go, the problem is I just don't know where to start because I'm not familiar with any of them. I have at least heard of Suse, Debian and Fedora before, but didn't even know this CentOS existed until yesterday... and yet, it seems to be one of the more popular choices.
So I was wondering if some of you seasoned VPS veterans here could recommend an OS, tell me what the differences are, or otherwise share any experience you might have with any of them.
I asked this question before in the past and I still have to ask it: has anyone used both Ubuntu Server Edition and CentOS? I would like to compare both operating system, in terms of speed, performance, security, and stability.
I have decided to build my new server and use Ubuntu Server Edition 64-bit operating system after using CentOS 64-bit operating system for a bit over a year now.
The reason why I have chosen to use Ubuntu Server Edition is because of the operating system's fabulous reputation among desktop PC users, and its large and helpful support community.
Support is what I need most, and Ubuntu seems to have it. I also am not the best with Linux yet, so it will definitely be needed. Ubuntu also seems to update its software faster than other operating systems.
I hope my decision to switch from CentOS 64-bit to Ubuntu Server Edition 64-bit will not be in vain.
Can anyone compare these two 64-bit operating systems and possibly link me to some reviews, comparisons, and/or benchmark results?
I'm not a Debian user, so I want some advice how to install Debian 4 as guest OS on top of Centos 5.2 dom0.
Mostly on Google, there's a manual on Centos on top of Debian. I've tried to use the netinstall iso for debian and mount it on /var/www/html/debian and use it for remote install source. So far don't have any success on that.
I am attempting to migrate from a debian os server with the latest plesk 12 to Centos (rather cloudlinux) and would like to know if there are any options that should not be checked during the process?
I recently tried to do the normal procedure, which is to transfer all objects, etc. And for some reason the percentage went from 1-50% to then back to zero.. but when clicking to check the current status, its still working
Status: in progress Current operation deploying domain.com current operation progress: empty bar
Different sites are transferring, but I am not sure if the migration will effect the system because the difference in OS folder structure and file location.
I would imagine there's a source for this but google's not yielding much. I'm looking for a CD/DVD ISO that will essentially auto install and configure a linux box with at least SSH access so I can manually install the rest.
I know bluequartz does this, put the CD and the install auto configures pretty much everything. Where would one find one click install discs for either CentOS or debian/ubuntu?
For some reason I am having issues with latest Plesk with php and wordpress. HTML sites are fine, but all php and wordpress sites are giving a 502 error after fully migrating. I repaired with Webserver Configurations Troubleshooter and rebooted and its still giving me the same issue.Also, noticed my previous server had php 5.4.36, the new CentOS server has 5.4.37.
When we chose Symfony to implement [url], PHP 5 was needed but we only had PHP 4 installed in our Ubuntu hosting servers. We couldn¡¯t just migrate everyone to PHP 5 since some of client¡¯s applications were incompatible with PHP 5. Some tutorials were found online explaining how to run PHP 4 and PHP 5 simultaneously such as [url] and [url]but they all used CGI. As you probably know, CGI is not scalable and we needed to scale in PHP4 and PHP5 since we needed to server millions of hits in both configurations. The following are additional the requirements we had:
1. Run Apache
2. Use mod_php for both PHP versions.
3. Run eAccelerator with both PHP versions.
4. Use as many Ubuntu packages as possible to ease maintenance issues and easily deploy on multiple servers.
5. Use Ubuntu 6.06.1 LTS
The solution we came up with was to run Apache 2 with PHP 5 and run Apache 1 with PHP 4 on separate IPs. Ubuntu comes already with these packages. The only package we had to compile was eAccelerator. The following lists the steps taken to get this setup:
Apache 2 with PHP 5
Apache 1 with PHP 4

I'm interested in having an unmanaged VPS with Ubuntu 7.1 or 8.04 installed (or available to Rebuild under the HyperVM) from the state of Missouri (should have at least some IPs already available from the region).
Are there any issues with Running Cpanel w/ WHM? long story short I heard it had issues with making domains and users because root isn't a user..? I like ubuntu but never ran cpanel on it. I want to use Ubuntu on my dedi. I'm not trying to start a ubuntu vs centos.
Does anyone know of a provider that has an Ubuntu Desktop VPS? I've got accounts with fsckvps and xensmart but they only have centos ones - I'll install gnome on of them if I really have to but i'd prefer todo as little leg work as possible as it's for personal use.
I am trying to create a database using the following method:./mysqladmin create db But I get the following error:./mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed error: 'Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2)' Check that mysqld is running and that the socket: '/tmp/mysql.sock' exists! I am new to configuring mysql. I have installed it etc but not sure how to start it. I tried the following to start the server:moe@moe-desktop:/usr/local/mysql$ sudo bin/mysqld_safe --user=mysql
I want to backup a entire folder thats in / not in any other folders.
I've tried this command but I get the error described below..
tar cvpzf opensim.tgz
tar: Cowardly refusing to create an empty archive Try `tar --help' or `tar --usage' for more information.
The folder is called opensim. I was logged into SSH with root access and tried the command directly, not going into other folders because well I dont want to, I wanna backup that 1st opensim folder that I can see on the FTP also.
I'm having some trouble finding a VPS host that offers Debian and Plesk. I've searched the forum but nothing's really panned out. I'm currently with Geekstorage but the server has been slow (same problem reported by others).
Anyone have recommendations for Debian + Plesk VPS host?
NX server needs ssh and some libraries to run. These packages are normally not installed during the basic installation process.Use the following comamnd to install
#aptitude libstdc++2.10-glibc2.2 ssh
Install Free NX Server in Debian Etch
First you need to download the .deb packages using the follwoing commands i did the three steps..
Now you need to install .deb packages in the following order this is very important
#dpkg -i nxclient_2.1.0-17_i386.deb
#dpkg -i nxnode_2.1.0-22_i386.deb
#dpkg -i nxserver_2.1.0-22_i386.deb
If you get any errors use the following comamnd to fix
#apt-get -f install
Now you need to make sure ssh and nx servers are running if not start with the following commands
#/etc/init.d/nxserver start -------------------- but the problem is i cannot connect to the nx . i installed the program on windows but what is the username and password should i use? i tried to use the root but it said that the user root cannot be used.
