Server packages for Ubuntu 6.06 Desktop


Could anyone give me a list of packages (http server, ftp server, smtp server, etc.) that I can install in Ubuntu 6.06 desktop? I'd use 6.06 server but I cannot keep organized with the command line.

Synaptic is your answer. On the desktop menu go to System -> Administration -> Synaptic Package Manager. And it installs, configures, and even updates packages for you. No command line.

Um, not really sure about the smpt server but here are some programs I would highly recommend for each service you might want to setup.

http - Apache2
ftp - Proftp
windows network shares - Samba
Secure Shell Server (SSH) - Openssh-server
Print server - CUPS
email - Sendmail


hope that helps.

I usually use apt-get so the list is perfect. The SMTP server was more of for experimenting. Http, ftp, and ssh were what I needed. Thanks.

Here are some of the server packages I added when I built my web server. I used Synaptic to find them but you can search on the command line using:
Code:
apt-cache search "searchstring"

mysql-server
apache2
openssh-server

For Apache I installed the following as well
libapache2-modperl2
libapache2-mod-php5
libapache2-mod-python (optional)

php5-mysql
php5-dev
php5-curl

A few optional extras
awstats - useful for looking at stats
phpmyadmin - to administer mysql db through a web interface
(need to include /var/www/phpmyadmin into your apache config )

If you use perl then you could add some perl cpan modules if you browse:
lib*perl

Thanks. I have another question, is there anyway I can configure vsftpd so that I can access my /var/www/ folder through ftp?
