Virola self-hosted server installation on Ubuntu
Download the Virola server installation package
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade sudo apt --yes --fix-broken install ./virola-server-debian-188.8.131.5253112_amd64.deb
Run Virola server
virola-server --listen HOST:PORT
Note: On first launch, the server will create an admin user with the admin password and administrator rights. Please change the default admin password as soon as possible to a more secure one.
You can change user password from the Virola client. You can also change
password of an existing user using the
command line argument of the Virola server.
We strongly recommend to encrypt Linux machine on which Virola server is running. The best way is to encrypt it during Linux installation but it is also possible to encrypt the existing Linux instance. We've prepared a detailed instruction about disc encryption in Linux environment for you.
