Quick Start Guide

For servers with fully-qualified domain names

On a recent Debian or Ubuntu server with a fully-qualified domain name (FQDN), run the following commands:

# Debian 10 (Buster), Ubuntu 18.04 and later:
sudo apt install mysql-server php-mbstring nginx php-cli php-fpm php-gd php-pear php-zip php-curl
sudo mysql_secure_installation
sudo wget -O /usr/share/keyrings/aegir-archive-keyring.gpg https://debian.aegirproject.org/aegir-archive-keyring.gpg
echo "deb [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/aegir-archive-keyring.gpg] https://debian.aegirproject.org stable main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/aegir-stable.list
sudo apt update
sudo apt install aegir3 aegir-archive-keyring

For servers without fully-qualified domain names

To get a Aegir instance for trial purposes on a temporary VM (either local or remote) without an FQDN, follow the Aegir Development VM instructions.

To ensure a secure best-practices set-up, read the Installation Guide for more information. It contains important details as well as guidance for installing on other operating systems.
