In ubuntu, you CANNOT logon as root. The user 'webdev' has to sudo in order to become root. So if you want to do superuser things on an ubuntu system do this:
enter the password.
sudo -s -H
enter the password. You will be logged in as root
You can log in as root as Ubuntu. You simply need to set a password for root first. Logged in as your other user, type 'sudo passwd root' and enter the password (twice) for the root user. You can from then on login as root.
This is an Ubuntu system. The password for root is already set. It is the same password as the password for the initial user in Ubuntu. That's why you can sudo. You dont need to set it again !!!!
Unfortunately the torrent file is not working, is there also any 'normal' download available somewhere/somehow?
Because it's really hard to find any Appliance with php4 and mysql4 installed.
So this Web Developer Appliance seems to be perfect.
thanks in advance for any help
ok, not sure why but I can access mysql now on the localhost.
Funny thing is I cannot type an @ character. hard to give privileges if you can't type @. Thoughts? Doesn't work anywhere. gedit, gnome terminal!!!!
