Configuration ubuntu server


Configuring Static ip address in Ubuntu server

Ubuntu installer has configured our system to get its network settings via DHCP, Now we will change that to a static IP address for this you need to edit Edit /etc/network/interfaces and enter your ip address details (in this example setup I will use the IP address 172.19.0.10):

sudo vi /etc/network/interfaces

and enter the following save the file and exit

# The primary network interface

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
address 172.19.0.10
netmask 255.255.255.0
network 172.19.0.0
broadcast 172.19.0.255
gateway 172.19.0.1

Now you need to restart your network services using the following command

sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart

You need to setup manually DNS servers in resolv.conf file when you are not using DHCP.

sudo vi /etc/resolv.conf

You need to add look something like this

search domain.com

nameserver xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

Install SSH Server

If you want to access your server remotely through SSH you need to install SSH server for this you need to run the following command

sudo apt-get install ssh openssh-server

You will be prompted to insert the installation CD again and this will complete SSH server in your Gutsy lamp server.This is really simple and easy server installation for new users and who wants a quick server.

Installing Webmin in Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon

Webmin is a web-based interface for system administration for Unix. Using any modern web browser, you can setup user accounts, Apache, DNS, file sharing and much more. Webmin removes the need to manually edit Unix configuration files like /etc/passwd, and lets you manage a system from the console or remotely.

You can install webmin for your server web interface to configure apache,mysql servers.Now we will see how to install webmin in Ubuntu 7.10

Preparing your system

First you need to install the following packages

sudo apt-get install perl libnet-ssleay-perl openssl libauthen-pam-perl libpam-runtime libio-pty-perl libmd5-perl

Now download the latest webmin using the following command

wget http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/webadmin/webmin_1.370_all.deb

Now we have webmin_1.370_all.deb package install this package using the following command

sudo dpkg -i webmin_1.370_all.deb

This will complete the installation.

Ubuntu in particular don’t allow logins by the root user by default. However, the user created at system installation time can use sudo to switch to root. Webmin will allow any user who has this sudo capability to login with full root privileges.

Now you need to open your web browser and enter the following

https://your-server-ip:10000/

Now you should see similar to the following Screen

Once you enter into the webmin you should see similar to the following screen

If you want to configure Apache,Mysql server you need to click on Servers on your lefthand side you should many servers are ready to configure

This is very Easy to configure most of the servers and Enjoy your new Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon LAMP Server
