This is a setup script to automate the setup and provisioning of Ubuntu servers. It does the following:
SSH into your server and install git if it is not installed:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install git
Clone this repository into your home directory:
cd ~ git clone https://github.com/jasonheecs/ubuntu-server-setup.git
Run the setup script
cd ubuntu-server-setup bash setup.sh
When the setup script is run, you will be prompted to enter the username of the new user account.
Following that, you will then be prompted to add a public ssh key (which should be from your local machine) for the new account. To generate an ssh key from your local machine:
ssh-keygen -t ed25519 -a 200 -C "[email protected]" -f ~/.ssh/user_server_ed25519 cat ~/.ssh/user_server_ed25519.pub
Finally, you will be prompted to specify a timezone for the server. It will be set to 'Asia/Singapore' if you do not specify a value.
This setup script has been tested against Ubuntu 14.04, Ubuntu 16.04, Ubuntu 18.04, Ubuntu 20.04 and Ubuntu 22.04.
Tests are run against a set of Vagrant VMs. To run the tests, run the following in the project's directory:
