Sometimes it's just better develop in Ubuntu, so in this post I will show how to setup your Ubuntu for eZ publish dev.

Open terminal:

sudo su
 #install MySQL, Apache and PHP
 apt-get install mysql-server mysql-client
 apt-get install apache2 apache2-doc apache2-mpm-prefork apache2-utils libexpat1 ssl-cert
 apt-get  install libapache2-mod-php5 php5 php-apc php5-intl php5-xsl php5-common php5-gd php5-curl  php5-dev  php5-idn php-pear php5-imagick php5-imap php5-mcrypt  php5-memcache  php5-mhash php5-ming php5-mysql php5-ps php5-pspell  php5-recode  php5-snmp php5-sqlite php5-tidy php5-xmlrpc php5-xsl  php5-cli  imagemagick php5-pgsql
 a2enmod ssl
 a2enmod rewrite
 a2enmod suexec
 a2enmod include
 #maybe you need to configure servername as localhost
 #gksu gedit /etc/apache2/conf.d/fqdn
 #ServerName localhost
 #let's change our php ini to the recommended eZ publish settings
 gedit /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini
 max_execution_time = 180
 max_input_time = 180
 memory_limit = 128
 #!important: maybe also add E to the php.ini variables_order setting
 #set php timezone
 date.timezone =  Your/Time_Zone
 #let's install eZ components - it takes a while
 pear channel-discover
 pear install -a ezc/eZComponents
 #I think you can install these using Synaptics
 sudo apt-get install sendmail
 sudo apt-get install phpmyadmin
 #remember to choose apache2 when installing phpmyadmin
# /etc/apache2/apache2.conf
Include /etc/phpmyadmin/apache.conf
#If you plan using Netbeans or other java based IDE you will need to intall:
#just use synaptic
/etc/init.d/apache2 force-reload
#/etc/init.d/apache2 restart


As long this setup is jut for development, you can set apache to run as the user to avoid file permission problems.

Then just follow eZ publish install instructions (create db, unzip files in /var/www, open ez dir in browser using localhost, and so on).
