Was a tie between here and Server Fault, and I decided that it belongs more here.
Anyway, I am seeking to host a website on my computer using Ubuntu Server 11.04. I've got just a few questions.
First off, does anyone know of any good tutorials, guides, or other documentation for learning their way around the terminal? I know the basics, but any sort of in-depth guide would be absolutely lovely. I know that it is possible to install a GUI, but I'd just honestly enjoy working with and learning the terminal more anyway, and I'm certain I'll have to learn it at some point in my life.
Secondly, do any of you have links to videos or (preferably) written guides on how I can set it up so that others may access and view the pages and files I upload?
FINAL THOUGHT: I am running Ubuntu Server in a Virtual Machine as all the spare computers in my home have fallen victim to my screwdriver. Would this give me any issues? I am aware that desktops are generally not built for long periods of activity.
FINAL THOUGHT PS: Thank you all so much for any assistance that you can provide. It is incredibly appreciated. (｡◕‿◕｡)
