Install Guide

This is the recommended way to install Atlas Hub. The installed is designed for a dedicated Ubuntu 20 Server, is easy to install and upgrade.

The primary server requirement is disk space - have enough space to hold 2x the data you plan to transfer. Atlas Hub streams all data, so the memory requirements are low.

Install curl and gnupg2.

sudo apt update;
sudo apt install curl gnupg2

Then, connect to the Atlas PPA Repository

curl -s "" | sudo bash -

Finally, install Atlas Hub. The EXTERNAL_URL is an optional pram with the DNS you’ve set up. This can be configured after install.

# if you have already configured a dns:
export EXTERNAL_URL=''; sudo apt install atlas-hub

# if you plan to configure a dns after install:
sudo apt install atlas-hub


If this is a new server you will be prompted to set the region and time zone.

Next Steps
