Hi guys Today is a great day, i'm ready to switch to Linux as my primary OS ! Finally ! I'm confident I won't regret my choice, but I have yet some few (plenty of) questions. I've already covered most, but I may need quite a bit of support to be fully satisfied, as my aim is also to gain greater control and understanding of what ma I doing and using. First, I've considered various distro, but I assume starting with Ubuntu is probably the best choice. I aim to use the computer for Research, SIG, and web developement (with a fair share of web design, data visualisation etc.) I'm not sure if I shoud open a thread for each, or go step by step with this tread ? I'll start by one and you'll tell me. LOCAL WEB SERVER I now about Lamp and Xamp, and it'll work, as a web server, for sure. For now I4ve been using a bit Mamp pro, for early development, and quickly moving my project to my VPS. The later was set up with ISPC folowing this tutorial ; it's darn great althought I do not use many of it's features, however I do use several virtual host, with three version of php (5.6, 7.0, 7.1), with custom php setting on each Vhost, some cron job, with etc. The question I have, is what would be the best way to set up my computer as local development server ? I obviously won't use it for production, but want to be able to test in real life/condition everything I may implement elsewhere. Thank's for your advises One of the underlying question is, if I don't install ISPC, then how may I handle various vhost locally, set php settings, and access to it, etc.
