Download And Install Ubuntu Server or Debian

First, a clean Ubuntu
operating system or Debian must be installed. Do not use an existing system on which you
have installed other applications and services like an existing web server and
email server. The installation process will overwrite the existing settings.

Download latest stable
version of Ubuntu Server. Usually, it is called LTS (Long Term Support). It is
free and you can find it here:
http://www.ubuntu.com/download/server

For Debian, use http://www.debian.org/distrib/netinst#smallercd. The installation process is almost identical to Ubuntu, but lighter and faster.

Chose the right version for
you: 32 bit or 64 bit. Normally, if you have multicore processors and lots of
GB of RAM you should go for 64 bit version, but if you are not sure download
the 32 bit version. It will work on 64 bit too.

Install Ubuntu Server, Alternate or Debian.

Important note: When you are asked to configure network
connection please make sure you input the correct settings. You need a working
Internet connection in order to download and install Scrollout F1.

 

Download And Install Scrollout F1

Login to the Ubuntu terminal console using your user and
password. For Debian use “root” account.
Make sure your internet connection is working properly and type the following
commands:

apt-get install sudo -y

sudo –i

cd /tmp

wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/scrollout/files/update/scrolloutf1.tar/download -O scrolloutf1.tar

tar -xvf scrolloutf1.tar

chmod 755 /tmp/scrolloutf1/www/bin/*
if(typeof __ez_fad_position != ‘undefined’){__ez_fad_position(‘div-gpt-ad-howtoforge_com-box-4-0’)};

/tmp/scrolloutf1/www/bin/install.sh

Press-hit ENTER every time you are asked
to answer a question.
By doing this you will select the
default recommended answer.

When done, the Graphic User Interface URL address and default Admin password will be displayed.

In case you’ll decide to uninstall:

/var/www/bin/uninstall.sh
