sudo apt-get install git -y
Once installed run the following command:
sudo git clone https://github.com/afaqurk/linux-dash.git
Next, install apache by making use of the following command. I already made a tutorial on how to install Apache on Ubuntu! But I will still show you how to install Apache in this article.

Setting Up Dash onto Apache
And then move the file you
git cloned into the html location
mv linux-dash /var/www/
Switch the following directory
Change ownership and permission of the Linux dash directory
chown -R www-data.www-data linux-dash chmod -R 775 linux-dash
Next, create a new virtual host configuration for access the Linux dash:
< VirtualHost *:80> ServerName www.(your server public ip) DocumentRoot /var/www/linux-dash/ < Directory /var/www/linux-dash/> AllowOverride All allow from all < /Directory> < /VirtualHost>
Then, Enable the site access for new creating virtual host configuration
systemctl reload apache2
Next, enable rewrite module.
systemctl restart apache2
Now, open a browser and type the following URL of http://local IP (or) domain name. To connect your domain make sure your server is open to port
80. Next make an
A record in your Domain Registar. The name should be
www and the value or host should be your server's ip. Wait a couple of minutes and type your domain name. If you use Cloudflare then you don't to wait alot.
