Is there a set of instructions on how-to install on Ubuntu server? Thanks

You'll need to get php mysql and apache setup and working first. Once that's setup concrete5 should install easily. A quick google search on setting php apache and mysql on ubuntu turned up this:

There are a number of howto's out there for just such a LAMP install.

Be advised, you may have to "apt-get" some additional software, for example: APC, php-mysql, python, etc... If you get any errors it is usually because for a missing .deb package or a misconfigured .conf. Good luck :)

Check first to see if your ubuntu server running on vmware is actually connected to the network. On the shell prompt type in

ifconfig eth0

it should bring up an ip address. Once you have the ip address try accessing the urlhttp://your.ip.address.here see if you can bring up a page served by apache. if you can't bring up the page see if you can ping the address.

ping your.ip.address.here

Would you say these instructions will result in a server secure enough for a production site?

I ask because I have a vanilla 9.04 server onto which I've installed LAMP etc to get concrete5 working. But I've not been totally convinced that it's as efficient or secure as I would like (primarily because I'm not an expert, so I always have a niggle that I'm missing some important configuration..)

Solved issue with connection to database error. Solution was that in the "server name" it should be localhost of site not IP address of the server.

Thx for all your help Forum!!!
