    Hi spleen387. Welcome to the forums!

    There are several options, but the most common is to install a app combo called LAMP (for Linux Apache MySQL PHP).

    Here's a guide to get you started.

    I hope that helps. Come here often and have fun.

    It is also useful to install SSH server using tasksel.
    Then you can log in from another pc on the network using:

    ssh username@PCIPaddress

    e.g. user1@

    However, if you are really new to Linux you need to learn the command line or use a desktop distro, as Ubuntu server does not by default have a GUI.

    One application that can help is webmin

    (I would use nano, not vi, change the line:
    sudo vi /etc/apt/sources.list
    sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list)
    The sig between the asterisks is SO COOL that only REALLY COOL people can even see it!
