IN Applications, Linux

This tutorial is simply an updated version of a previous one I did for Snow Leopard. We now Mac OS X Lion, and the instructions are updated to reflect that. For my local development, I have used LAMP environments where I would install them from source, or 3rd party solutions such as MAMP. The problem with those solutions is that I can’t try different things whenever I want, such as different configurations, and there might be a possibility that the code will not behave the same on a real environment.
Luckily for us virtualizing has become a popular way to quickly deploy environments for testing, and scraping. I have really come to embrace this technology, and if you haven’t already I would urge you to start using or an entertaining the idea.
One of the problems one might face is being able to edit your files through your favorite editor, and only using the server to test, but not do any actual development.
In this tutorial I will show you how to install Ubuntu Server on a virtual environment..
In order to move forward with this tutorial you will need
Mac OSX Lion 10.7.3 http://www.apple.com
VMware Fusion 4.1.1 http://www.vmware.com/products/fusion/
Ubuntu Server 11.10 http://www.ubuntu.com/server
It may work with future versions, and I will try to update this tutorial when new software is available.
