The first step is to install the Linux version of your choice (ensure it’s a supported version, for example as of writing this guide, Ubuntu 21 is no longer supported). If running the installation from the Linux Desktop UI, you can open a Terminal window and proceed from there. If you are running the installation from another computer, you may need to install openssh-server to be able to then SSH to the Linux provider. To do this open a Terminal window and enter ‘sudo apt install openssh-server’, answer Y to the prompt and then you will be able to SSH to the Linux PC from another computer and you can continue the installation from there. ‘Curl’ may also need to be installed if it’s not already installed with your Linux distro. To install, in the terminal windows enter ‘sudo apt install curl’ and answer Y to the prompt. The final prerequisite is that you should physically install, partition, format and mount your storage drives. Please ensure that the storage drives will be automatically mounted each time Linux boots up, whichever method you use to set it up.
