Linode VPS Tutorials


    Setting up a Linode VPS server, I’m going to use a one click installer so on the create server page select One-Click and select LAMP which includes Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP.

    Enter a MySQL password ensure its a strong password and select an image, with this LAMP image only Debian 9 is available at the time of writing this.

    Select a region, I’m UK based so I’ve selected London.

    Select the server size I’ll go with the $5 a month plan. This can be changed later.

    Give the server a name and enter a root password, ensure again to use a strong password.

    Next comes the SSH keys, either select an existing SSH key from your account or click on Add an SSH Key here you can enter a name for the key and the SSH key itself.

    The SSH key allows login without using passwords. Existing keys are located at ~/.ssh folder the default public key is if you don’t have one then you can generate a key by using ssh-keygen.

    When ready click create and the server will be created, the process can take a few minutes to complete.

    Now you can connect to your server using ssh root@ip address
