This has been tested on a few different bare metal and VPS systems using Ubuntu 11.10. I know it’s not the most secure but it will get the job done and you can clean up security issues on your own. Everything was run as root but if you’d like to use a admin user just add “sudo” before most commands.
apt-get install apache2
apt-get install php5 libapache2-mod-php5
apt-get install mysql-server
#set root mysql password
apt-get install libapache2-mod-auth-mysql php5-mysql
apt-get install php5-gd
#this is assuming you don’t have any other sites on the server.
mv concrete5*/* .
chmod -R 777 config/ files/ packages/
mysql -u root -p
#The database name may be set to something other than concrete5 but that’s what I’m calling it here and below.
create database concrete5;
open web browser and go to server address.
Install concrete5 screen
MySQL Username: root
Database Name: concrete5
