In my good old days with LINUX I struggle quite a bit to understand what is a port number & how it works, what is firewall & why the hell it is blocking, etc. You have to understand port number when you work with tomcat server (remember server.xml 🙂 – man it sucks), it works in 8080 but not in 8090 or you name it, it just doesn’t work at all :-).
Today I am going to talk about only installation of tools/apps required for LINUX Server. I have chosen DEBIAN, since it makes you intelligent ;-).
Okay, cool, now? First thing you have to buy a hosting space, there are quite a good people who provide this service – do a quick Google.
OKAY – Now let’s say you have got the hosting space and you have selected the DEBIAN (LENNY) OSand logged into the machine – remember DEBIAN is for intelligent & its not for human-beings means most of the tools/apps will require a separate installation. You have to dive deeper to figure out the tools you want and install them – this is interesting because it let’s you know things :-).
This blog post is recommended for those users who knows about LINUX SERVER & shouldn’t find the meaning of Debian in the dictionary.
