bash WSL on Windows 10 – what kind of wizardy are you?

Still trying to get my head around what exactly bash on Windows 10 really is. Have read a few posts and watched a few videos, but it is still weird to do a `top’ and see  ubuntu processing running in a command window that in my Windows machine that is running real linux binaries.

Weird.

But awesome too.

bash windows 10 rsync and ssh like a boss

I was really impressed with the bash WSL on Windows 10 Creators Update. It worked to backup some web sites from Amazon EC2 using the rsync and ssh scripts untouched. I just copied across the ~/.ssh directory and voila! I can now rsync over ssh to pull backups from my web sites down to my windows machine.

This suddenly makes the big honking disk and windows 10 a far more developer friendly machine. Why didn’t microsoft do this years ago?

I am becoming more and more impressed with the WSL for Windows 10 Creators Update.

I installed apache and mysql and so far it appears to be working just fine and dandy !!

sudo apt-get install apache2
sudo apt-get install mysql-server
sudo apt-get install php libapache2-mod-php
sudo apt-get install php-mysql
sudo vim /etc/apache2/apache2.conf

add

Servername localhost
AcceptFilter http none

sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

sudo service mysql restart

and voila!, you have a web server running.

http://localhost is alive.

So it really is behaving like a real ubuntu shell. Wowser. Windows just became more of a developers dream.
