Installing and configuring Ubuntu Application Server



  • Download Ubuntu Server 16.04.1 LTS
  • Install Ubuntu Sever on VirtualBox
  • Download and configure Nginx, MySQL-Server and PHP

First steps

We need to go to Ubuntu’s website so we can grab a copy of Ubuntu Server 16.04.1 LTS. Once this is downloaded we can then load up VirtualBox and add a new machine.

Now we have an Ubuntu Server 16.04.1 LTS ISO downloaded we can create a new virtual machine.

Once we have gone through all of the installation steps we can then log in to ubuntu using the username and password we set earlier. This will then give us to a CLI (Command Line Interface) where we can start downloading and configuring Nginx, MariaDB and PHP.
