Having used both operating systems extensively, my choice would be Ubuntu over CentOS, and I'm starting to prefer Debian over Ubuntu. The reasons for preferring Ubuntu are as follows:-My question is what's so dreamy about Ubuntu?
UBUNTU mini.iso install: Choose language Choose timezone Detect keyboard <Yes> Hostname: incrediblepbx <continue> Choose mirror for downloads Confirm archive mirror Leave proxy blank unless you need it <continue> ** couple minutes of whirring as initial components are loaded ** New user name: incredible <continue> Account username: incredible <continue> Account password: makeitsecure <Continue> Encrypt home directory <No> Confirm time zone <Yes> Partition disks: Guided - use entire disk and set up LVM Confirm disk to partition Write changes to disks and configure LVM <Yes> Whole volume? <Continue> Write changes to disks <Yes> <-- last chance to preserve your disk drive! ** about 15 minutes of whirring during base system install ** <no touchy anything> ** another 5 minutes of whirring during base software install ** <no touchy anything> Upgrades? Install security updates automatically ** another 5 minutes of whirring during more software installs ** <no touchy anything> Software selection: *Basic Ubuntu server (only!) ** another couple minutes of whirring during software installs ** <no touchy anything> Grub boot loader: <Yes> UTC for system clock: <No> Installation complete: <Continue> after removing installation media ** on VirtualBox, PowerOff after reboot and remove [-] mini.iso from Storage Tree & reboot login as user: incredible sudo passwd ** enter incredible password and then create root user password ** su root ** enter root password ** apt-get update apt-get upgrade -y apt-get install ssh -y sed -i 's|without-password|yes|' /etc/ssh/sshd_config sed -i 's|yes"|without-password"|' /etc/ssh/sshd_config ifconfig reboot ** login via SSH to continue **
sudo passwd # enter your user acct password and then set up new root password su root
apt-get update apt-get upgrade -y apt-get install ssh -y sed -i 's|without-password|yes|' /etc/ssh/sshd_config sed -i 's|yes"|without-password"|' /etc/ssh/sshd_config ifconfig # write down the IP address to access your server via SSH reboot
