In order to begin my development career and have a platform from which to publish to the web, I decided that I wanted my own server. I’m not talking about a paid web hosting plan, I mean renting an actual physical machine, from which I can configure to publish my works, and to use as a development server. This tutorial sets out step by step how this can be achieved using a machine running Ubuntu 10.04.
