comment upgrade from 12.04 to 14.04 server edition
What's the problem? Press enter, then you should boot. When you've confirmed that this works as it should, then you follow the instructions in the screenshot you provided.

Please edit your question to provide more details. It sounds like a 2FA issue, but it's difficult to be sure based on your question.

comment How to use an Ubuntu installed computer as a webserver to host files in?
Please edit your question to be specific about what it is you want to accomplish. Yes, you can easily use Ubuntu to host a website, but the site will be unavailable if you turn off your computer.

comment Saved the Ubuntu installation file on a USB, now none of my computers read the USB
Can you edit your question to provide more details on how you copied the installation files to your memory stick? Copying the iso-file is not enough. Also, boot options are different on different PCs. What exactly is it you want to undo?

comment How to lock an application screen?
I think you can use DevilsPie for all of that.

comment tried to change home folder location, now can't log in
You probably can't login to your desktop because you don't have access to your home directory. use Ctrl+alt+f1, log in with your user. Then you should be able to do "sudo adduser tempuser", then do "sudo adduser tempuser sudo". You'll now have a user "tempuser" that has sudo access. You can use this to make it easier to fix your primary user.

comment Virtualhost document root access previous folder
There should never be a directory below the root, seen from within that directory structure. We're talking about the "/" directory. There is no parent.

comment Virtualhost document root access previous folder
You could always create a link to it from banking if you can't move it. I guess a relative symbolic link would be best, in case you move your website later.

Make /var/www/banking the DocumentRoot?

Do you mean "parent folder" rather than "previous folder"?

comment Do I need to upgrade only the RAM for making Ubuntu's virtual machine quick and smooth as OS X at the same time?
Well, I use Ubuntu guests with 2GB RAM for that type of thing with no issue. If you think it's slow, then it's more likely to do with GPU than CPU. Perhaps you'd like to try using a different desktop than Unity.

comment Why does Ubuntu freeze when connecting HDMI?
Sounds like this should be filed as a bug report rather than as a question. Obviously, Ubuntu is not designed to crash if you connect a monitor. File it on Launchpad.net

comment Audio source changer
I see. I think you can do that with PulseAudio Volume Control. You can find it in the Software Center. When Skype is running, go to the Recording tab and select the audio source you'd like to use as input for Skype. Please try it and tell if it works so we can add an answer to your question.

It depends on how you use them.

Internal audio? Input or output? You need to explain. It's not possible to help you if you don't.
