Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

These instructions are for Ubuntu 16.04 on a hosted VPS provider

This class is the most critical as it will ultimately determine whether your server works or not. Make sure you have at least a 20-minute block of uninterrupted time before you get started. It should also be done in one fell swoop since we’ll be configuring our firewall to keep the bad guys out!

Virtualization Drivers

When given the option, we install Ubuntu using the Intel Pro/1000 virtual network card and the Virtio disk driver.

$ sudo lsblk -o NAME,FSTYPE,SIZE,MOUNTPOINT,LABEL

NAME   FSTYPE  SIZE MOUNTPOINT LABEL
sr0           1024M
vda             20G
├─vda1 ext4     19G /
├─vda2           1K
└─vda5 swap   1022M [SWAP]

Ok, start your engines!
