    I need an IT person who can help me to setup a linux (Ubuntu) website on my hosting.

    I think you may need to clarify a little what you are trying to do to get some assistance.

    At the moment your post reads a little backwards (to me).

    There’s no such thing as an Ubuntu website. Ubuntu is a Linux operating system which will be the server, and is used to run a web server, typically Apache. Your website is then loaded into a folder that Apache (or similar) runs (clear as mud so far?).

    For typical shared hosting you don’t really need to know much about the servers … you’ll have no say in setting it up (cause there could be a large no. of sites on the same setup). Website install is done as a separate issue and is usually pretty straightforward for anyone that’s done it a few times.

    But if you’re actually trying to provision an Ubuntu server on some other form of hosting it’s a whole different ball game ( and usually requires some serious skills).

    A bit more info and someone may be able to steer you in the right direction, or refer you to the right person.

    Cheers

    Let’s see if this makes it clearer

    Operation system: Any OS that can run the Java VM like Windows, Linux, FreeBSD or Mac;
    Make sure you have at least 500Mb memory available for Cyclos (if the OS runs 64 bits, for 32bits 300Mb should be enough);
    Java Runtime Environment (JRE), Java 7 is required;
    Web server: Apache Tomcat 7 or higher;
    Database server: PostgreSQL 9.3

    Not really, I’m assuming you’ve just posted the system requirements for an e-commerce website package.

    You say you already have hosting, so that will already have an O/S and some specifications with it. (e.g. Linux, dedicated ram) and most hosting companies will include a webserver and database (e.g. Apache and PostgreSQL)

    You request is the equivalent of “I have purchased a car, I need someone to set it up to be a blue Holden Astra”. Hence the confusion.

    Your best bet would be to talk to your hosting providers and ask them if their hosting is compatible. If not, then find some hosting company that is.

    I think the penny has dropped :)

    Keywords being Tomcat and Cyclos. Tomcat is an application server for Java apps, not very often used for a typical website … so I Googled “Cyclos”.

    Cyclos is an enterprise grade banking system, the specs you posted are for a “local” install.

    Looks like a very interesting piece of software, but not for the feint hearted.

    I only had a quick read of the doc’s, but it’s not something you run from a website typically. It stands alone on it’s own server and communicates via API’s to other web clients.

    I see they have a forum, maybe you can find an expert there.

    Out of curiosity, why would you needs such software?

    Well it looks like you’re onto the right starting point for software … but you’re going to need someone who really knows their stuff to get it running securely.

    The doc’s I read were pretty much Java all the way down, heavy going for anyone but a serious programmer (in Java) with server admin skills to boot.

    Pretty hard to police what’s happening unless you have some good tech skills of your own (or someone you trust).

    A big task to succeed at, good luck.

    Cheers

    Why not come along. It wont be easy. It wont be quick . There are only 2 possibilities; It will be a great success or, we can comfort ourselves in knowing that we tried. I have decided to devote the rest of my life (50 years) to this project. There are lots of reasons to do it, and no reasons not to. Imagine what we will learn . If you don’t want the learning and, you don’t want the cash flow, come for the adventure.

    That is an awesome attitude!

    What experience do you have with Tomcat and Java? Like Greg_M has stated you are going to need a serious Java programmer with server admin skills, which is hard to come by. Even if someone does have both skills, they may be awesome in one area but only OK in the other. As such you may need to look at splitting your requests in 2; getting a programmer and system admin to help. Or are you looking for a system admin to secure the hosting environment for you, while you configure the application?

    What sort of hosting are you running at the moment? General web hosting or do you have your own server/virtual server? Tomcat is reallllllly RAM intensive, so I can’t imagine it running too well, if at all, on general web hosting.

    Thanks,
    Blake

    Ok it looks like I have a stable DVS. Found an IT guy in India who was able to help with that .. I think I can work the local user section .. I found a bloke in South Africa who is trying to do something similar, have a conference scheduled with him later today. Group is growing slowly. Even got one fellow who wants to be 1st account holder (member).
