New Server

I am on a new server now. It is still a virtual server running Ubuntu and it is still hosted by However the new server is a lot faster. It has about 10 times more RAM and also more CPU power, more space, unlimited traffic and much more. If you are interested in having your own v-server you should definitely check the new v-servers at greatnet.

As I had to reinstall everything I decided to write down what software I put on the new server:
It is running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. I did not make the same mistake of choosing a non LTS version again.
And here are the packages I have installed:

  • php5-cgi
  • nginx
  • vim – a text editor
  • mysql-server
  • php5-mysql
  • ufw – a simple firewall
  • lynx – a simple browser
  • wget
  • sudo
  • unzip
  • imagemagick – used for the draw tool
  • graphviz – used for the graph tool

I did not install Proftpd (a ftp server) this time because I realized that I can also use Ssh with my Ftp-Client (FileZilla).

I think I will now try to use the increased amount of memory to run a java server and experiment with some other programming languages besides php. I want to try python, java and scala but I will yet have to find a way to integrate the php parts with the jvm part.

PS: I just realized that WordPress required a ftp connection for automatic updates and installations. This sucks.
