For those of you who didn’t know, The NetBeans (also known as Apache Netbeans) is an integrated development environment (IDE) for all Java application development. So, Apache NetBeans provides editors, wizards, and templates to help you create applications in Java, PHP, and many other languages.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges.
