Welcome to the first video in the Ubuntu Server Administration guide. In this video, I will walk you through the creation of a VPS (Virtual Private Server) in Digital Ocean. We will install Ubuntu 18.04 on this instance, access it, and make it available to the public Internet.

Hi Jay. An innocent question. What ssh client do you use?

Are you alright health-wise. I remember watching you a lot more bulky in a video a couple of years ago, I think.

Thank you for saying “sudo” correctly. It drives me crazy that everyone else says it like Homer.

EasyTutorials says:

Hi Jay , thanks for these worthy videos, I will appreciate your help for this error during the configuration of NFS server:
after I changed my export file and run this command to restart the service sudo systemctl restart nfs-kernel-server I’ve got this error: ob for nfs-server.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See “systemctl status nfs-server.service” and “journalctl -xe” for details.
