Package manager

Ubuntu and Debian use apt-get for installation and removal of packages.

To install a package, in this example Apache web server, use the following command:

apt-get install apache2

To remove it, type:

apt-get remove apache2

Services start-up

To set the service for start-up with the system, use the following command, assuming appropriate start-up script is installed:

update-rc.d <service> defaults

To remove the service from automatic startup, use the following command:

update-rc.d -f <service> remove
Replace <service> with the name of the service, for example:
update-rc.d apache2 defaults


You can find out which version of Debian you are running by issuing more /etc/debian_version command.
