Installing Ajenti Linux Server Management Software on Ubuntu

Enter this command in Terminal to install the Agenti Linux server management software:

wget -O- | sudo sh

The above command may appear to be wrapped from one line to the next, but it should be pasted in as one complete command.

More comprehensive instructions can be found on the Ajenti installation instructions page.

After installing, go to this address in your browser https://localhost:8000/ and then when warned about the connection not being private (if using Google Chrome), then click the Advanced link. Then click Proceed to local host (unsafe). The reason for the alert is that you don’t have an SSL certificate on your local computer.

Installation Process

Below is an example of what you’ll see during installation. The text in bold is what you type.
