The installation process is simple, but we always have to keep in mind a few things.

The first thing is that it is advisable to do this tutorial in a clean system installation. This way, we will avoid any conflict between packages.

In addition to this, your user must have root permissions or be a user of the sudo group.

Remember that the power of the server will tell you how much you can take advantage of it. In this sense, the more powerful the better.

The developers of Hestia provide us with an installation script that really makes the process easy.

So, before you start, connect via SSH to your server. Then, update it.

sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade

After this, we need to make sure that the wget package is installed.

sudo apt install wget

Now, with wget installed, we can use it to download the script.


Now you need to assign the appropriate permissions to it:

chmod 755

What remains is to run the installation script with root user permissions

sudo bash

After entering your password, the whole process will start.

First, it will start downloading and installing all the dependencies. During the process, you will have to enter a valid email address and FQDN.

Then you will see a screen with all the changes that the system will undergo. It is like a summary of what will be installed.
