Step by Step tutorial to install Ubuntu Server 12.04

I hate to write the long articles, so I will make it short and sweet.

First, download the server version of Ubuntu from here,create the CD and boot the machine with the CD:

Once you successfully boot from CD, it will present you with the following screen in order to select your desired language and then press [Enter]

Select “Install Ubuntu Server

Select the language, you would like to use for the install

Select your Country/City

It’s time to detect your keyboard layout. If you want to detect it then select “Yes” or else use the predefined one by using the “No” option.

Choose the Keyboard layout from pre-defined list

Choose a hostname for Ubuntu Server

Setting up username and password

It will show you warning if you are using the weak password

Select “Yes“, if you want to encrypted private directory (but I will use No)

If it finds the correct time zone for your location you can select Yes. If it says none or is not the time you wish to use, select No.

You have to partition your hard disk before use it, here I am using the “use entire disk” option

Configuring the package manager and select continue

Select how do you want to update your sever

Select the software that you wish to install by highlighting them and hitting the spacebar

Select Yes to install the grub in the master boot record

Installation complete message here, you need to remove the CD

After reboot, Login to the server by entering the username and password you created during installation

Hope this will help you!

Please Remember me in your prayers!
