Step-by-step Installation of Ubuntu Server 16.04 LTS

May 1, 2016 |

First, download the current version of Ubuntu Server. Currently, it's 16.04 LTS (always choose an LTS version). A 64-bit version is recommended. A 32-bit version is available though.

After downloading the ISO image, you need to create a bootable CD/DVD or USB flash. If you have already done so, put the disc in your drive, or insert the USB flash, and reboot your machine. BIOS must be set up to boot either from the CD/DVD or USB flash depending on which installation method you choose.
