web.py Deployment on Ubuntu 14.04

These instructions are a note to myself, on how to get web.py deployed on a new VM with Ubuntu 14.04, for development:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get install --yes openssh-server 
sudo reboot

After the reboot:

sudo apt-get install --yes apache2 libapache2-mod-wsgi
sudo apt-get install --yes git
sudo mkdir /opt/web.py
sudo chown `whoami`:`whoami` /opt/web.py
cd /opt/web.py
git clone git://github.com/webpy/webpy.git
ln -s `pwd`/webpy/web .
cat <<EOF > index.py
import web

urls = (
    '/(.*)', 'hello'
app = web.application(urls, globals())

class hello:
    def GET(self, name):
        if not name: 
            name = 'World'
        return 'Hello, ' + name + '!'

if __name__ == "__main__":
python index.py
