    Ubuntu uses a packaging tool called apt, have a read somewhere (plenty of info out there).
    You might want to search for LAMP server to get some information about setting up a webserver.

    Good luck

    Thread moved to Server Platforms.

    If you are intending to run a website, you'll probably want to set up a web server. There are several alternatives, of which running "apache" is a commonly used choice.

    You might want to take a look here: https://help.ubuntu.com/12.10/serverguide/httpd.html

    Never assume that information you find using a search engine is up-to-date.

    Re: Installing website

    Ubuntu 11.04 is way out of date, and no longer supported. Install Ubuntu 12.04.

    You can use Ubuntu Software Center to install Apache2, or the following apt-get command:

    sudo apt-get install apache2

    To copy files to the /var/www directory you need to use a file browser opened as root:

    gksudo nautilus

    or copy files across using sudo cp.

    Re: Installing website

    First things first, you shouldn't be using 11.04.

    11.04 was only supported for 18 months, so it reached end of life in October last year. This means it hasn't had any security updates or bug-fixes for 6 months now and may well have security vulnerabilities that won't ever get patched, meaning it could be a trivial task for anyone to hack into your server and take it over.

    The recomendation is to only use LTS releases for production servers, which means installing 12.04 as it has five years of support.

    Once you have 12.04 you can install the entire LAMP stack (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP) with the following command...
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install lamp-server^
    This will configure Apache to server your website from the /var/www folder.

    For more information your first port of call should be the official documentation...

    Re: Installing website

    ok thanks the reason i chose 11.04 was the next version up was 12.04 beta and it says use it at your own risk...(Ubuntu 12.04 x64 bit (BETA)
    This is a beta OS for openVZ. Use at your own risk)

    Your VPS provider isn't very up to date with their OS choices then. 12.04 was released in April last year.

    Tell them to do this.

    Go to http://wiki.openvz.org/Download/template/precreated , download 12.04.

    On older openvz kernels, the VPS Provider _has_ to have the ppa:izx/ovz-libc PPA enabled inside the VPS in order to get a working libc
