In this tutorial, we'll show you how to install the ServerPilot agent on your server.
First, you'll need to get yourself a server running 64-bit Ubuntu 16.04 or 18.04. This should be a new server. For example, see how to create a server on DigitalOcean.
Next, in ServerPilot, go to the Servers page and click + Connect Server.
Enter your IP address, your root password, and a password for the SSH/SFTP user serverpilot. Click Connect to ServerPilot.
ServerPilot will check the connection and begin installing. It will also set up a firewall; multiple PHP versions; Apache configured with .htaccess and mod_rewrite enabled; NGINX; MySQL; and more.
Once the installation is complete, your server will show as connected in ServerPilot, and you'll be prompted to create your first app.
