From creating network file shares to hosting websites (and so much more), Ubuntu Server is a solid base for setting up your projects.

Starting with the installation process, we’ll then configure the server. For those not comfortable in a purely command line environment, we’ll also look at installing a graphical desktop.

As well as setting up remote access and creating a network share with Samba, other topics will include adding users, file permissions, monitoring, and even installing a LAMP stack.

Whether on physical hardware, in a virtual machine, or even in the cloud, start your journey into Linux servers with Ubuntu Server.
