How to turn a Minecraft seed into a zip file?

Q. My friends and I are trying to make take the DivideByZero Minecraft seed for our online server, but I am not sure how to do it. Does anybody have a link to a .zip file, or know how to make this seed into one? Thanks!

A. This method assumes that you have a world by that seed in your saves list.
Are you on a Windows or Mac (or Linux)?
If you are on a:
Mac, go to your home folder (the folder named your username), open Library, open Application Support, open Minecraft, then saves, and then zip the folder called the name of the world. There you are!
Windows, open up a program called Run (in Programs/Accessories) and type in %appdata% and hit enter. Open up .minecraft, then saves, and then zip the file called the save.
Linux, open up your home folder and press Ctrl-H (to shop hidden files), and look for .minecraft. Then find the saves folder, and zip the save.

How to make an Apache Server using Linux?
Q. Hi I am using linux debian on an old imac g3. I have gotten the web server up to a point where I can see the 'It Works' page but now what? I want to add Joomla to it but I don't know how to make it load like cpanel does. Help!

A. a) Download Joomla
cd /var/www
sudo wget -c
sudo unzip
sudo rm index.html
sudo chown -R www-data:www-data *

b) Setup MySQL & phpmyadmin
sudo apt-get install mysql-server
sudo wget -c
sudo tar xvfz phpMy*
sudo mv phpMy* phpmyadmin
sudo chown -R www-data:www-data phpmyadmin
sudo mv phpmyadmin/ phpmyadmin/
sudo nano phpmyadmin/
During the installation, it will ask you for the mysql password. set it, and remember it.

At this point, add something to the part where it says you need to add something for blowfish authentication. Just type a whole load of random characters.

Press Control + X to save.

visit http://< web server address >/phpmyadmin

login with username 'root' and the password you set before.

Create a new database named "joomla"

Now, visit http://< web server address >
Your database name is the one you just created.
User is "root"
password is the password that you set.

Its not exactly secure to use the root account, but as your only using it for personal purposes, it doesn't matter much.
