    here some tested lines on the installation - possibly good for the manual?

    # firstly, install mysql-server
    sudo apt-get install mysql-server mysql-client

    sudo apt-get install imagemagick
    sudo apt-get install apache2
    sudo apt-get install php5 libapache2-mod-php5
    sudo apt-get install php5-cli php5-mysql php5-gd
    sudo service apache2 reload

    # PHP configuration
    sudo vim /etc/php5/cli/php.ini
    # settings to set:
    # register_globals = Off
    # memory_limit = 128M
    # magic_quotes_gpc = Off
    # file_uploads = On
    # post_max_size = 100M
    # upload_max_filesize = 100M
    # session.gc_probability = 0

    # apache config
    sudo nano /etc/apache2/sites-available/newscoop
    # adding the following lines to the empty file
    <VirtualHost *:80>
          DocumentRoot /var/www/newscoop
          ServerName newscoop.local

    # then continue
    sudo mkdir -p /var/www/newscoop
    sudo a2ensite newscoop
    sudo a2enmod rewrite php5
    sudo service apache2 reload

    # download Newscoop
    # change the wget command if you want a different version
    mkdir Sources_Newscoop
    cd Sources_Newscoop/
    # sourceforge saves the file only as "download". we need to change that.
    mv download newscoop.tar.gz
    tar -xvzf newscoop.tar.gz
    sudo mv newscoop-4.0.2/* /var/www/newscoop/
    sudo chown -R www-data.www-data /var/www/newscoop/

    # add newscoop.local to the hosts list
    sudo nano /etc/hosts
    # add the following line to the file       newscoop.local

    # Open firefox, go to page: http://newscoop.local
    # finish installation, use password sourcefabric for admin

    Hi Micz,

    Thanks for that, it lines up with what we have in the chapter:

    To prevent the file being saved as 'download' you can do this:

    tar -xvzf newscoop-4.0.2.tar.gz
    sudo mv newscoop-4.0.2/* /var/www/newscoop/
