Setting up a Virtualmin-controlled Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Precise Pangolin server on Linode

Introduction

Linode is one of the best low-cost Virtual Private Server Hosts available, offering Xen VPS Hosting for a number of popular operating systems. With the release of Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, I felt that it was past time that I upgraded my webserver (the one that runs this website, actually!), and document the little tweaks that I discovered along the way.

What we’re setting up

  • Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
  • A standard LAMP Stack (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP)
  • BIND DNS resolution—combined with Virtualmin below, you’ll be able to manage your own domains!
  • Linode reverse-DNS resolution
  • Virtualmin / Webmin backend server management
