I might not be very good at explaining things in an impromptu manner, but hopefully within the video right after the break I do somewhat OK in showing you how to install a web server on Linux. Also, I explain how to use the web server in a basic sense. For the bonus, I also show you how to install MySQL’s web administrative interface PHPMyAdmin. At the end of the video, I demonstrate how to install WordPress just to prove to you that you can really host a web application on your brand new web server. Please enjoy the video tutorial right after the break!
Can Ubuntu 12.10 replace Windows 7? Obviously, we have Windows 8 now. Nonetheless, some people are still preferring Windows 7 over Windows 8. Ubuntu 12.10 is a good comparison to Windows 7, and so it might be a good alternative for Windows 7. I’ve found a great video on YouTube which goes through various popular Windows 7 tasks on Ubuntu 12.10, to see if Ubuntu 12.10 can replace Windows 7 or not. Enjoy!!!

When using Linux, you can use symbolic link to create shortcut for the data that you want to work with. Using symbolic link as shortcut is quite convenient, because you can access some data that might reside in a location that is many many levels deep within a parent directory. Besides being convenient, symbolic link does have other advantages too. One of such advantages is to protect the original data from being deleted by accident when a user delete the parent directory where the symbolic link is currently residing in. Anyhow, you can know a lot more about symbolic link and how to use it through watching the video right after the break. Enjoy!!!
I was playing around with Amazon Web Services, and then I thought it would be a good idea to make a how-to video which shows people (who are new to Amazon Web Services) how to add, attach/associate, and mount EBS (Elastic Block Storage) to Amazon EC2 (Elastic Cloud Computing) instance (using Ubuntu 12.04 Linux OS for the EC2 instance). For your information, Amazon Web Services is like a cloud web hosting and network infrastructure (plus a whole lot more). Nonetheless, if you have no idea what I just spewed and still think Amazon Web Services is interesting, you definitely can find out more about Amazon Web Services at Amazon (the website and not the jungle). Anyhow, the thought is awesome in my opinion, and so the end result is the video right after the break. Enjoy!!!
