Ubuntu Server how-to guides

If you have a specific goal, but are already familiar with Ubuntu Server, our how-to guides have more in-depth detail than our tutorials and can be applied to a broader set of applications. They’ll help you achieve an end result but may require you to understand and adapt the steps to fit your specific requirements.

Alternatively, our Tutorial section contains step-by-step directions to help outline what Ubuntu Server is capable of while helping you achieve specific aims, such as installing the operating system or customizing software.

Take a look at our Reference section when you need to determine what commands are available, and how to interact with various tools.

Finally, for a better understanding of how Ubuntu Server works and how it can be used and configured, our Explanation section enables you to expand your knowledge of the operating system and additional software.
