We recently acquired a Silverstone RM420 20-bay disk farm to house all our house needs for data storage. This was a story in its own right, but here we document the process of rebuilding Ubuntu to suit the local needs.
In what follows, we use a prompt of # to indicate that the actions must be done as superuser, and $ for actions as the (normal) user.
Depending how you got to this stage, the hostname might need fixing. To do this, simply edit (as superuser) the file /etc/hostname to the correct value.
# vi /etc/hostname
load basic files from backup. These should include:
~/.bash_profile ~/.bashrc ~/bin/* ~/lib/emacs ~/.emacs
Install my preferred editor Emacs
# apt-get install emacs
Install the web server Apache
# apt-get install apache
Enable the actions, cgid and userdir modifications.
# a2enmod actions cgid userdir
In the file userdir.conf, change the <Directory /home/*/public_html> line containing AllowOverride to be just AllowOverride All
install the XSLTPROC package
# apt-get install xsltproc
Assuming all the relevant files have been copied across from backup, you should now be able to access the web server from a browser.
