I guess, you want to make your Ubuntu server UP & running within few minutes with one click that will install all the essential packages for your web server. I created the following script that you can run right after installing your Ubuntu OS in your machine.
I tested this script over Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and nGinx as web server.
I created the following shell script for (a) Installing Common packages, (b) Configuring Virtual Host
You just need to run the installer. In your terminal just write down the following command and it will start installing all the essential thing and after that browse localhost or with server IP address and you are supposed to see the default nginx server page.
sudo wget https://gist.githubusercontent.com/shahariaazam/b63b72da0afbff195492/raw/db0ff5f553fdb25cf3bd9da64ec942cf09b31ab7/make_ubuntu_ready.sh
sudo chmod a+x make_ubuntu_ready.sh
And browse ‘http://localhost’
You can explore the shell script from the following gist. First file is the shell script that you are installing in above command prompt. Second and third .conf file is for sample virtual host. I embeded those 3 files for you to look at. If you think that we can add any more things please write here in comment box so I will consider that for others.
