A good hint to protect these "remote installations/upgrade" from several network issues that may occur, is to run these procedures under 'screen'. I.e.

# screen

# ./setup
In this way, even if you loose the connection to your server, you can easily come back later and run:

# screen -r
There is a screen on:
        16337.pts-1.nemesis     (Attached)
There is no screen to be resumed.
Oops, the screen has remained attached (because we lost the connection). Let's detach it:

# screen -d
And resume it:

# screen -r
Now you should see your setup running again, where you left it.
