View Full Version : [ubuntu] Setting up a database on Ubuntu 10.04 server

August 19th, 2010, 11:28 PM
Hello, I want to set up Ubuntu Server 10.04 on a computer I have lying around, set up a database for storing information, and a website for accessing it, which is only avaliable on my local network (it would just have an IP address on my local network). How would I do something like this?

I want to set it up on probably a Dell, and I want to be able to have multiple fields on the website that people see when they go to that IP address where they can enter information to be recorded in the database, and then be able to easily access it with a login, which different people would have different ones, so they can see just the information they entered.... I'm sure it's possible, but I'm clueless.

Thank you for your help in advance!!

Here's my advice,

Look at: https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/serverguide/C/index.html to start off.
If you want a PDF version go to https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/serverguide/C/serverguide.pdf, download and enjoy!

I really learnt most of what I know about Ubuntu Server by using this guide as a reference. Thumbs to the Ubuntu Help Community

After that, you can move forward and look at the development part of your question.

The setup of a database etc (MySQL, Apache Server, and PHP took me under 30minutes to perform). This is only if you want full web deployment as an option.

Let me know if you struggle anywhere.
