Ubuntu Game server setup
« on: September 27, 2010, 11:38:54 AM »
Dear All, :)

I have decided to setup, Dedicated game server on Ubuntu Server Edition 10.04 64bit with GUI gnome. I also heard CentOS is best distro for server available right now is that true? 

1- How do i install GUI with no extra features like Evolution, Mail Client, Game etc.
2- LAMP server for Game panel installation.
3- Where do i upload my 6.7 GB Call Of Duty4 game folder from my system faster in single large file, so that i can download it from remote ubuntu server. (Free service only).
4. Good VNC to access from login window.

For #4 I would suggest the free VNC Viewer. I am running lion server on a hackintosh and use VNC viewer to access different user profiles via vnc without disturbing active users at the server itself.

Hi,

For step 2 see here http://www.fiz-ix.com/2012/11/how-to-setup-an-ubuntu-lamp-server-with-a-desktop-gui/
thats link i used to set mine up many moons ago

for step 1 once gui i has been installed bu delete programs you don't want using package manager or apt

step 3 why not copy it to a USB and paste it on your server ???

step 4 VNC is good but i like TEAMVIEWER personally much easier to use

good luck and hope this helps
