The Ubuntu Linux server operating system offers the conveniences of easy software installation with the additional stability and security required in a server platform. If the PHP scripting language is used, installing the PHP-SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) and the Webmin server management tools on the server will help simplify system management by enabling SNMP status alerts and server administration through a Web interface. Install the PHP-SNMP and Webmin packages on a Ubuntu server using the Aptitude and Debian Package Management tools.
