  1. Sir, is this works for all versions of Ubuntu. because on my Linux ubuntu i tried to install apache2 followed by your steps but it shows "some packages cannot be authenticated"…what should I do?

  2. Great video. Only thing that I had to do was install nano. This video already has nano installed. Just sudo apt-get install nano and you will be fine. Also if you find just "html" instead of index.html you have to change directory to the html "cd /html" and then ls. You'll see the index.html in there to edit.

  3. does apache works without VirtualBox , i installed the vitualBox but every time type virtual box –version it gives "" The character device /dev/vboxdrv does not exist.
    Please install the virtualbox-dkms package and the appropriate
    headers, most likely linux-headers-generic.
    what to do ?

  4. this is really helpful sir.I saw all of your videos on cisco paket tracer and i finished the major project with its help.Now for my linux project im referring this video.I have never seen someone explain this so clearly.Thank u sir and keep up the good work.
