Is there any interface or program that I could install on my Linux Xubuntu that would help me set up a server using the terminal as little as possible?

  • What do you mean "set up a server?" What do you want your server to do? – drs Jun 27 '14 at 22:43

Probably your best bet would be to make use of the application Webmin.


Webmin is a web-based interface for system administration for Unix. Using any modern web browser, you can setup user accounts, Apache, DNS, file sharing and much more. Webmin removes the need to manually edit Unix configuration files like /etc/passwd, and lets you manage a system from the console or remotely. See the standard modules page for a list of all the functions built into Webmin, or check out the screenshots.
