Install Drupal 7.14 on Ubuntu 12.04

Download drupal archive from the site and copy it to the root of your www directory
(on Ubuntu that is: /var/www  for apache2).

Unpack the drupal archive:
tar -zxvf drupal-7.14.tar.gz

Change the name to drupal (or any other):
mv drupal-7.14 drupal

Make sure ALL the files are owned by the www-data user (Apache2 user):
chown -R www-data:www-data ./drupal

Make sure you have the following packages installed:
php5-gd, libapache2-mod-php5, php5-pgsql (if you use postresql with drupal)

apt-get install php5-gd
(use apt-get, because aptitude uninstalls libapache2-mod-php5)
aptitude install libapache2-mod-php5
apt-get install php5-pgsql

Open the page (installation script from the browser):

That's about it.
