I cannot seem to find info on creating web pages on my Ubuntu 12.10 server. Is there a program to do this like Microsoft has (such as Frontpage)?

I have installed Ubuntu 12.10, PHPMyadmin, MYSql, Lamp server, postfix.

Now what should I do?


Usually servers are set to hold and serve pages, the development machine is at the hand of the developer, and syncs the web application using a protocol such as SFTP, FTP or WebDav.

If you have a xserver desktop on your machine, I'd recommend you Gedit that can be set up to be a great text editor for web development. (Some tips here)

For non-GUI use (i.e. ssh access) there is vim which is widely used, and nano which is very simple.


Vim is a great start. If you plan on making it yourself, a text editor like vim or an IDE such as geany would probably suit you well. If you're learning, making it yourself is the best way in my opinion.

Here are some editors to look into. If you want a "What You See Is What You Get" kind of editor (like Dreamweaver) then Kompozer looks like a good option if you don't mind compiling from source. Amaya and SeaMonkey are two other options. Here's a paid app you could check out: quickandeasywebbuilder

  • Kompozer is no longer maintained so it is not available in ubuntu 12.10 repository. Blue griffon is better than kompozer – Tachyons Jan 8 '13 at 5:01
