How to reinstall the dev server.

Create new vps:

Select configuration type: 'Typical'
Select os version: 'Linux' + 'Other Linux 2.6.x kernel'
Select name: 'dev*'
Select network configuration: 'Use bridged networking'
Select Disk size (GB): '50' + uncheck 'Allocate all disk space now' + check 'Split disk into 2 GB files'
Create the vms

Change memory to 512 MB
Load the iso '/iso/debian-40r2-i386-netinst.iso' into cdrom0

Boot the machine

Do a base Debian install:

Select language 'English'
Select country 'United States' (fix timezone issue?)
Select keyboard 'American English'

Wait for the installer to load and setup the network

Select partition method 'Guided - use entire disk'
Select disk to partition 'SCSI1'
Select partition scheme 'All files in one partition'
'Finish partitioning and write changes to disk'
Select timezone 'Easter' (will be changed later)

Set root pass

Create the first user

Wait for the base install to finish

Use a network mirror: 'Yes'
Select mirror country: 'Denmark'
Select one

Setup proxy if needed

Select 'no'
Uncheck all except 'Standard system'

Wait for the extra packages to be installed.

Install grub to master boot record: 'Yes'

Reboot the machine

apt-get install openssh-server

Setup etch backports:

echo "deb http://www.backports.org/debian etch-backports main contrib non-free" >> /etc/apt/sources.list
cat >> /etc/apt/preferences << EOF
Package: *
Pin: release a=etch-backports
Pin-Priority: 999

wget -O - http://backports.org/debian/archive.key | apt-key add -
apt-get update

Setup webserver, databases and cvs:

apt-get install apache2 mysql-server postgresql-8.2 libapache2-mod-php5 php5-cli php5-mysql php5-pgsql php5-curl cvs stunnel sudo

echo include_path = \".:/usr/share/php5:/usr/share/php5/Smarty-2.6.19/libs\" >> /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini
wget http://www.smarty.net/do_download.php?download_file=Smarty-2.6.19.tar.gz
cd /usr/share/php5
tar zxf /tmp/Smarty-2.6.19.tar.gz
chown -R root:root Smarty-2.6.19/

Setup PAM:

groupadd wheel
uncomment "# auth       sufficient pam_wheel.so trust" in /etc/pam.d/su

Setup users:

groupadd mcs
usermod -g mcs -a -G wheel,www-data {initial user}

groupadd {secondary user}
useradd -m -g mcs -G users,wheel,www-data,{secondary user} {secondary user}
passwd {secondary user}

Setup webdirs:

chgrp mcs /var/www /etc/apache2/sites-available /etc/apache2/sites-enabled
chmod g+rw /var/www /etc/apache2/sites-available /etc/apache2/sites-enabled

Now each user can create their own webdirs:

mkdir /var/www/{directory}
chgrp www-data /var/www/{directory}

cat > /etc/apache2/sites-available/{directory} << EOF
<VirtualHost *>
        ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost

        DocumentRoot /var/www/{directory}
        <Directory />
                Options FollowSymLinks Indexes
                AllowOverride None
        <Directory /home/>
                Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
                AllowOverride None
                Order allow,deny
                allow from all

        ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/error.log.{directory}

        # Possible values include: debug, info, notice, warn, error, crit,
        # alert, emerg.
        LogLevel warn

        CustomLog /var/log/apache2/access.log.{directory} combined
        ServerSignature On


ln -s /etc/apache2/sites-available/{directory} /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/020-{directory}

As root, run: /etc/init.d/apache2 reload
