Hey all I'm trying to setup a clean install of ubuntu server, the install went fine but when I run the sudo apt-get update I get this. Any ideas?
Noticed the same issue last night on the Debian NZ servers, think they're the same ones for Ubuntu too. Just changed mine to look at the oz servers.
RickW: Most of that page looks like it needs the GUI, running ubuntu server all I have is terminal. Is there a way to change the update server through terminal alone?
RickW: Something screwy must be going on because Its saying "can't read /ect/apt/sources.list: no such file or directory"
You done a typo, /ect/apt/sources.list
should be /etc/apt/sources.list
here is a list of mirrors
and nz.archive.ubuntu.com is back up..
no need to change to the AU servers
CPU: Intel 3770k| RAM: F3-2400C10D-16GTX G.Skill Trident X |MB: Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H-WB | GFX: GV-N660OC-2GD gv-n660oc-2gd GeForce GTX 660 | Monitor: Qnix 27" 2560x1440
RickW: Thanks guys, yup that was it.
Everything is up and running and I'm now in the process of creating my first website!!!!!!
Take a look at EasyEngine (https://easyengine.io/) as it'll prepare everything for you in a secure manner.
From here, you can do lets say:
ee site create example.com --wp --php7 --hhvm --letsencrypt
to create a speedy Wordpress site complete with SSL (letsencrypt). I'm not kidding, it is really that simple. There is easy to follow documentation on the easyengine website but if you were to use LetsEncrypt ensure you have both Port 80 and Port 443 forwarded to your "server".
