List installed packages in debian

Haven’t we all been there when we have put so many hours in completing the perfect installation?

Then we do it all over again with the next vps/server?

There actually is a pretty nice feature to get a list of all installed packages that you can save for the next time, run this command

and save the file packages.txt somewhere safe.  Next step would be to save all your config-files, but thats another story.
