Welcome to the Ubuntu Server Guide!

Here you can find information on how to install and configure various server applications. It is a step-by-step, task-oriented guide for configuring and customizing your system.

This guide assumes you have a basic understanding of your Ubuntu system. Some installation details are covered in Chapter 2, Installation, but if you need detailed instructions installing Ubuntu please refer to the Ubuntu Installation Guide.

A HTML version of the manual is available online at the Ubuntu Documentation website. The HTML files are also available in the ubuntu-serverguide package. See Chapter 3, Package Management for details on installing packages.

If you choose to install the ubuntu-serverguide you can view this document from a console by:

w3m /usr/share/ubuntu-serverguide/html/C/index.html

If you are using a localized version of Ubuntu, replace C with your language localization (e.g. en_GB).
