Setting up a Debian box for development: linux installation

This will be a work in progress series of posts to help people get into the amazing world of developing applications on the web.

Will also give me opportunity to fine tune my knowledge.

 

This will be the L in LAMP, here we go:

 

1. Download a Debian ISO file (6.0.4 has just been release as of this writing)

2. Download LinuxLive USB Creator from http://www.linuxliveusb.com/

3. Run LiLi and create a bootable USB stick with the ISO file you downloaded from Debian website

Choose to format the key in FAT32

 

After following a default installation procedure…. so we're all starting from the same page.

install a few packages:

 

# apt-get update

# apt-get upgrade –show-upgraded

# apt-get install aptitude

# aptitude install sudo rsync
