Coto (aka Fast and Easy Web Server Installation) is simply a Bash script that allows users of Ubuntu, CentOS, Red Hat, Debian, and Mandrake to install and configure a web server in an easy and fast manner. Coto allows for example to:

  • Update and install Apache, PHP, MySQL, SQLite, Django, and Subversion
  • Configure SSH and IPTABLES
  • Configure and securitizing Apache and MySQL
  • Create SVN and TRAC repositories
  • Create a mail server
  • Create a cron backup (mysql, apache, trac & svn), etc.
To install Coto under Ubuntu, open the terminal and run the following commands:

wget -O coto-server-easy-install-0.2-17.tar.gz http://goo.gl/kXmDb
tar zxvf coto-server-easy-install-0.2-17.tar.gz
cp ~/coto-server-easy-install-0ae46a9/config.sample ~/coto-server-easy-install-0ae46a9/config

To start the installation, run this command:

sudo ~/coto-server-easy-install-0ae46a9/install.sh
