Linux Ubuntu Help



This guide is designed STRICTLY for Ubuntu 20+, older versions may not work with these guides.

These guides are pulled from other sites, and mashed together to help in a more formal and collected webpage, rather than having 18 different tabs open.

Newbies to Linux Ubuntu or MySQL may have some trouble understanding this, just take your time, and read :]

SSH into a Linux Ubuntu Machine.

  • Open up a Command Prompt and run this command:
ssh root@YOUR-VPS-IP
  • Enter your provided password you set on your hosting services setup page
  • You're done! Welcome to a Linux Terminal!

Use A File Explorer VIA Linux

For this tutorial, I will be using WinSCP as it is the more proficient FTP service. You can also use FileZilla if you wish.

  • Install WinSCP
  • Open It
  • Enter your Credentials (Hostname/IP, Username, Password)
  • Then you can see your Linux Machines Files!

Installing NodeJS V12

Because of the latest package release of NodeJS being weird (It's set to 10 by default) we have to force Ubuntu to install a later version of NodeJS through commands!

Simply open into your Linux Terminal, or into SSH, and run the following commands:

sudo apt update
sudo apt -y install curl dirmngr apt-transport-https lsb-release ca-certificates
curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_12.x | sudo -E bash -

sudo apt -y install nodejs

This forces NodeJS to use V12 instead of V10.

Q: Why use V12 instead of V10, and why does it matter?
A: It has a huge difference, especially in the Discord side of things, odds are your app won't be Discord Integrated without NodeJS V12 or higher.
