Since I’ve been rebuilding my server a bit recently, I figured I’d put the steps into a document. There are a few good guides out there, but I always seemed to run into weird issues which weren’t covered.
This is more-or-less a “how to” guide (with information borrowed from a couple sources), albeit slightly tailored to how I have my servers setup. I based it off a fresh Ubuntu 12.10 install, but it also worked on a fresh 12.04 install. If you’re going to use an existing server, there may be parts of this that don’t apply (such as network configuration).
If you do end up trying, let me know how it goes and if I missed anything.
