Installing my new Ubuntu Server
I was spending all day setting up my own web server using Ubuntu Server as a platform. I got tired of sharing a server at BlueHost, with slow response times and CPU throttling. But there was a lot of steps to get it to work with compression, wordpress and other stuff. All the things that would be a great writeup for others (and me if I have to do it again), but guess what. I didn’t take notes! The good news is that the speed has increased 300%. That’s the great part of living in Sweden. Cheap fast 100mbit internet. They now actually have 1gigabit for home use, but it’s around $80 so I’ll wait a couple of months.
Thinking of redoing the whole installation in a virtual disk in VMWare and write down a how-to. I had to dig pretty deep in Google to get the info I needed. The information was everywhere. I’ll try to do it this weekend. Could be useful.
