Drupal sites are most effective when you run them on a VPS or dedicated server. Often times, though, setting up a server can be a pain. In this column, I wish to demonstrate a way to make this set up process and site creation easier, while allowing you the freedom to modify the server in the future when you find that module you just can’t live without. Using some simple scripts I have developed, we can set up an Ubuntu web server with a Drupal site in a matter of minutes. I will show you how and where to find them. —by Adrian Webb
