Setting a static IP Address on Ubuntu Server 14.04

This process uses the command line to set a static IP address on Ubuntu Server 14.04.

Note: If you do this process from an SSH session, you will lose connection when you enter the final command. But if you did everything correct, you simply need to establish a new session using the static IP address you assigned.

sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces

This is what the default file will look like:

# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The primary network interface
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp

This similar to what should look like for a static IP. Of course, use addresses relevant to your network:

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The primary network interface
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
        address 10.5.1.33
        netmask 255.0.0.0
        gateway 10.5.1.254
	dns-nameservers 10.5.1.2 208.67.222.222 8.8.8.8

Lastly you need to reload networking:

sudo ifdown eth0 && sudo ifup eth0

Install Unifi Video (NVR) on Ubuntu 14.04

This is a new post with basically the same instructions only not tied to a specific version. I will keep this post edited to reflect the current version.

I’m starting with a fresh, fully updated server install of Ubuntu Server 14.04 64bit.

Download the current Unifi Video deb package. 3.4.0 as of this edit (9/25/16)

wget http://dl.ubnt.com/firmwares/unifi-video/3.4.0/unifi-video_3.4.0~Ubuntu14.04_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i unifi-video_3.4.0~Ubuntu14.04_amd64.deb

At this point you will probably receive an error about missing dependencies. No worries, simply run the following.

sudo apt-get -f install

That command will install all the needed dependencies and finish installing the unifi video deb package. At this point, Unifi Video is installed and should be running. Open a web browser and point it to https://ipaddress:7443.

Install Unifi Video 3.2.0 (NVR) on Ubuntu 14.04

I’m starting with a fresh, fully updated server install of Ubuntu Server 14.04 64bit.

Download the Unifi Video 3.2.0 deb package

wget http://dl.ubnt.com/firmwares/unifi-video/3.2.0/unifi-video_3.2.0-Ubuntu14.04_amd64.deb

sudo dpkg -i unifi-video_3.2.0-Ubuntu14.04_amd64.deb

At this point you will probably receive an error about missing dependencies. No worries, simply run the following.

sudo apt-get -f install

That command will install all the needed dependencies and finish installing the unifi video deb package. At this point, Unifi Video is installed and should be running. Open a web browser and point it to https://ipaddress:7443.

Alpha 2 of Hardy Heron Released

Hardy Alpha 2 released

Alpha 2 is the second in a series of milestone CD images that will be released throughout the Hardy development cycle.

Up and running on Ubuntu 7.10 RC1

Well, I was able to use the live cd and get the the system installed with no issues, unlike my last experience with Beta 3. Everything with this release is looking pretty good. Although, I still think Ubuntu performance is pretty slow compared to some other distros. I’m really looking forward to the final release so I can install it on my laptop and see if video works better than it does in 7.04.
