Personal Linux Server
Posted 28 September 2012 - 01:44 PM
I have a ubuntu box at home which I use as a mini home server (with capabilities to Remote SSH)
Recently my hard drive failed so I am in the process of rebuilding the box and I thought instead of just having a dev LAMP box, why not set up for testing as well, such as Selenium, PHPUnit ect
My question is what tools do you all suggest I have on the box to fully utilize my mini server.
Here are the things I plan to install so far
The "Would be handy"
PHPUnit (well duh)
Bamboo (or equivalent)
PHP code Sniffer
Ant Deploy scripting
Any suggestions / other options would be much appreciated (basing some apps based on previous companies usage)

For Ubuntu Server 12.04 during install process you have option to install mail server elements however seems that most add on Dovecot for Pop and Imap and then some other webmail if that is something you need. Also server doesn't come with a gui so if you needed one then you might want to find a stable copy of Debain or LTS version of Ubuntu Desktop(Not a huge fan of the new design but thats me) and then install your server elements (Apache, MySql, PHP, etc..)
As far as tools since I run server and no gui seems that shell is my best friend / Geany on my Win box but it's easier to make change for me in the shell environment.
webmin is handy if you need to administer the machine if you go the Ubuntu server route.

I installed ubuntu server many times at my house
download and install Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS
There is a decent tutorial here on setting it all up with ispconfig
If you already have the server installed you can use taskel and add anything additional
sudo apt-get install tasksel
Select what you want additional
This is how to add the desktop gui to the server edition (I like kubuntu)
You'll see webmin there which is also handy
phpmyadmin for managing your databases
sudo apt-get install phpmyadmin
and then do this so apache finds it
sudo ln -s /usr/share/phpmyadmin /var/www
Something you may be interested in is turnkey virtual appliances, download,burn,install and ready to go solutions
I've done them in vmware,virtualbox and virtualpc, they work pretty good.

It depends on how much value automated functional testing and cross browser compatibility is to you, in any case it is not something to be taken lightly. At work we use SuaceLabs, precisely for the reason that setting up and maintaining a Selenium testing cluster is "expensive": (it takes a lot of time and effort). I didn't see anyone mention Jenkins or Hudson, I would strongly suggest diving into that before Selenium/Webdriver.
