Welcome to the Linux server installation and configuration section, where you're going to set up your own virtualized lab environment. This lesson will describe what you'll be learning and accomplishing in this section.

The first thing we're going to do is get our virtualization setup going, so we're going to get VirtualBox installed. We will create a VM and a network config and then assign that network to our virtual machine. You also download and install Ubuntu Server, which you actually do before the virtualization setup just so that so download can run while we're setting up Virtual Box.

Once we have Ubuntu server installed, we're going to configure SSH from our Windows computer. If you're on a Linux computer already, then you'll be able to SSH directly into it. You probably won't need to pay too much attention to that lecture. But if you're on a Windows computer, then you'll need to do some things to get SSH set up unless you're using a modern or up-to-date version of Windows 11, Windows 10, or perhaps Windows Server 2019 or newer, then you already have the SSH client installed. If not, you'll have to enable that. And it just takes a few seconds, and we'll show you how to do that.

Next we'll be upgrading our Ubuntu server operating system, which is something that you should be doing every time you install any operating system, no matter what distribution of Linux you're installing, or if it's Windows, you always run updates after you install the OS, and that's what we'll be covering in that lesson.

Finally, there will be a quiz and an IT lab to practice what you've learned in this section! So, if you're ready, let's get started with the section. I'll see you in the next lecture.
