apt-get install apache2 mysql-server php5 rsync phpmyadmin logwatch jpegtran libjpeg-progs imagemagick htop memcached
nano -w site_import.sh (wrote a script to import the server, including automatic SQL import)
chown techgage:techgage site_import.sh
rsync -av -e ssh root@oldserver:/etc/apache2 /etc/apache2
mysql -u root -p (created database user, and databases).
echo "I wonder if Brett will notice this."
(Double-checked some configuration stuffs here)
nano -w /etc/crontab
nmap -sS 127.0.0.1
watch "echo stats | nc 127.0.0.1 11211"
date +%T -s "17:48:00"
cd /home/SQL ; sh SQL_backup.sh
chown techgage:techgage -R /home/techgage/public_html/wp-content/
At the end of the day, command-line is super quick if you know how to use it. I prefer it over a GUI any day of the week when dealing with low-level stuffs like this. I don't like GUIs, because they can slow you down (mostly if you are a fast typer), especially when tapping in remotely. I can still understand why people would prefer the GUI... it's easier. I wouldn't call it quicker.
