    Step-by-Step Tutorial: Installing Ubuntu Server 22.04

    Hello, Bajubesi Network Server Forum members,

    In this tutorial, I'll walk you through the process of installing Ubuntu Server 22.04 on your Bajubesi Network Server. To make this guide as clear as possible, I'll provide both commands and instructions alongside images for reference. Let's get started:

    1. Access to your Bajubesi Network Server.
    2. A blank USB drive with a minimum capacity of 2GB.
    3. An internet connection.

    Step 1: Download Ubuntu Server 22.04
    • Visit the official Ubuntu Server download page here.
    • Download the "Ubuntu 22.04 LTS" ISO image for your server architecture (usually 64-bit).

    Step 2: Create a Bootable USB Drive
    • Insert a blank USB drive (2GB or larger) into your local computer.
    • Download and install a tool like Rufus (for Windows) or Etcher (for Linux and macOS) to create a bootable USB drive.
    • Open the tool, select the Ubuntu Server ISO file you downloaded, and choose the USB drive as the target.
    • Click "Start" or "Flash" to create the bootable USB drive.

    Step 3: Connect to the Server
    • Use SSH to connect to your Bajubesi Network Server:
    ssh username@server_ip
    Replace username with your server's username and server_ip with your server's IP address.

    Step 4: Start the Installation Process
    • Insert the bootable USB drive into your server.

    Step 5: Boot from the USB Drive
    • Reboot the server and access the boot menu. This varies by server manufacturer but often involves pressing keys like F2, F12, or ESC during startup. Refer to your server's documentation for the specific key.

    Step 6: Begin the Ubuntu Server Installation
    • Select the bootable USB drive from the boot menu, and the Ubuntu Server installation process will begin.

    Step 7: Follow the On-Screen Prompts
    • The Ubuntu Server installer will guide you through various setup steps.
    • Choose your language, keyboard layout, and other settings.

    Step 8: Partition Disks
    • Select the disk where you want to install Ubuntu Server.
    • Choose the partitioning method that suits your needs (e.g., guided with LVM, manual).
    • Confirm the changes and write them to disk.

    Step 9: User Account Setup
    • Create a user account and set a strong password.
    • Set up the OpenSSH server if you want to access the server remotely via SSH.

    Step 10: Install Software
    • Choose additional software packages if needed, such as a web server or an OpenSSH server.

    Step 11: Complete Installation
    • Review the installation summary.
    • Confirm and start the installation.

    Step 12: Finishing Installation
    • Once the installation is complete, remove the USB drive.
    • Reboot your server.

    Congratulations! You have successfully installed Ubuntu Server 22.04 on your Bajubesi Network Server. You can now log in and begin configuring your server for your specific needs. Enjoy your new Ubuntu Server installation!
