You are obviously a developer, or someone studying application development. My recommendation to you is to download the enterprise edition of the Netbeans 6.9.1 IDE
, which includes PHP support and the Apache Tomcat server as well as the Oracle glassfish server, among many other bonuses and features, with your installation. Oracle will offer a Linux compatible download of whatever you want from its site. The Linux version of Netbeans is a .sh
file, essentially a script file which installs Netbeans when you type in 'sh /wherever_you_downloaded_netbeans_to/the_package.sh'
on the terminal command line. You must have the latest Java SDK/RE installed before you can do that. It can be obtained from the Oracle site as well. If you are running Ubuntu 10.10, read what's at this link
for a complete tutorial on how to properly install Java on your linux box. That's a must.
