Installing Ubuntu Server 16.04 LTS¶
Ubuntu 16.04 is approaching its End of Life in April 2021. Because of this, we don’t recommend installing new instances of Mattermost on Ubuntu 16.04. Please refer to install guides for Ubuntu 18.04 LTS or Ubuntu 20.04 LTS instead.
Install the 64-bit version of Ubuntu Server on each machine that hosts one or more of the components.
To install Ubuntu Server 16.04
- To install Ubuntu Server 16.04, see the Ubuntu Installation Guide.
- After the system is installed, make sure that it’s up to date with the most recent security patches. Open a terminal window and issue the following commands:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
Now that the system is up to date, you can start installing the components that make up a Mattermost system.
