Codiad is an open source, web-based, cloud IDE and code editor. In this tutorial I'm going to explain how to setup Codiad on Ubuntu.

##Installing Apache Since the project is basically a self-contained web directory, we'll need to set up a web server (Apache) and PHP processing in order to get this running.

 sudo apt-get install apache2
 sudo apt-get install php5 libapache2-mod-php5 php5-mcrypt

##Installing Git Because Codiad is hosted at Github, we have to install Git in order to get the project files.

 sudo apt-get install git

##Setting up Codiad Now, we need to get the actual Codiad files.

 sudo rm -rfv /var/www/html/*
 sudo git clone /var/www/html/
 sudo touch /var/www/html/config.php
 sudo chown www-data:www-data -R /var/www/html/
 sudo service apache2 restart

##Done! Open http://your-ip-address/ and finish the installation.
