Question, is this geared more towards a render farm? I'm wondering why you'd use Apache when you are on ubuntu and have built in resources to read the log files. It's a bit redundant and a strain on resources best saved for TG.

If this is for a Farm, I would also add how to remove redundant Ubuntu packages not ever needed, or should be running, with a Server. Desktop, GUI related applications and runtimes, etc. Ubuntu is not a good server when you need all the resources you can get, I'd definitely go with Debian or FreeBSD.

As is indicated in the sticky post at the top of this forum, we're really wanting people to put all new contents into the Wiki and not the forums.

It is not a farm, it is just my extra Workstation I have in my room - I use it for rendering only while working on my primary computer.
And there is no Apache or any www server software installed - yes it has Unity, because I need it for other software, but if you want to make it for Terragen only you should go with Ubuntu Server edition  (I still preffer it over Debian or FreeBSD as it has larger community and newer packages).

OK, resolved - I was running it as a root...

Woops! Haha I doubt Terragen was written to use root and was assuming global vars based on a user account and their allowed assets.
