How to Install Ubuntu Server in Pictures

In this tutorial, I will be presenting the installation of Ubuntu Server 12.04.5 LTS in pictures.

First, download the Ubuntu-desktop ".iso" file and burn it onto a CD.

example: from Ubuntu website: www.ubuntu.com, I went to downloads >> alternative downloads >> scroll down to see the "past releases and other flavours" section

links:

- Ubuntu releases
- Ubuntu 12.04.5 LTS (Precise Pangolin)

After downloading your desired .iso file, burn it onto a CD or DVD. I used CDBurner XP. With your CD ready, boot your computer from CD-ROM and follow the prompt:

1) Welcome screen, click "install ubuntu server"

ubuntu-server01

2) Language selection screen

ubuntu-server02

3) Location: select your location

ubuntu-server03

4) Keyboard configuration: select no for an automatic detection

ubuntu-server04

5) Keyboard configuration

ubuntu-server05

6) Keyboard configuration

ubuntu-server06

7) Configure the network with a hostname(server name)

ubuntu-server07

8) User and user-password setup-screens:

ubuntu-server08

ubuntu-server10

ubuntu-server12

ubuntu-server13

9) Home directory encryption: select No

ubuntu-server14

10) Clock configuration based on your curent location

11) Disk partitioning: if you are a new Ubuntu user, select the first option: Guided partitioning to use the entire disk

ubuntu-server16

12) I have about 18G in my partition

ubuntu-server17

13) select Yes to write changes to disk

ubuntu-server18

14) If you are not using a proxy to connect to the internet, disregard and continue

ubuntu-server19

15) For now, I just want OpenSSH access to the server from my LAN, so I select the first option, and continue

ubuntu-server21

16) install Grub boot loader, and continue: Yes

ubuntu-server22

17) Hurray!!!!, installation is complete, Hit continue to reboot

ubuntu-server23

18) Server has rebooted, into a GUI-less mode.

ubuntu-server24

thats all folks!!!

NOTE: SSH login requires the same credentials as that of the user account. Until you create a password for root, you cant access the box as a remote root.
