I verify my development setup against the checklist below. When running the automatic install script ubuntu-all.sh, everything should be ok, but if I have tried some manual install to test something, this list gives a good clue, to find out what when wrong.
- I give the command “locale”, and it must not show the warning “locale: Cannot set LC_CTYPE to default locale: No such file or directory”
- vim, I create a new file and insert a line with a tab. Here I check that the tabstop is 2 spaces and trailing spaces marked with red.
I point my host browser to http://ubuntu.dev. I get “Ubuntu Web Development Environtment”
On the host I make a ftp connection to ftpubuntu.dev, I enter name ‘ada’ and password ‘Lovelace’ when prompted and do a ls /var
In the vm ssh I do the command “mysql -u root -pLovelace”. This will take me to mysql interpreter. Here I can give any commands, e.g. check which databases I have with “show databases;”
I point my host browser to http://ubuntu.dev/phpmyadmin. This will show me the admin page, where I can log in with user ‘ada’ and password ‘Lovelace’
- Apache and clean urls
I start the Drupal 8 installer. If clean urls is enabled I can install, otherwise I get an error message.
- I check my Drupal sites where I see the Drupal login page.
- I check my WordPress site where I see the WordPress installation wellcome screen at http://ubuntu.dev/wordpress.
