Select the hardware on which you want install YunoHost :
If you wish to check the validity of our signed images, you can download our public key.
Now that you downloaded the image of Internet Cube, you should flash it on a microSD card
Download Etcher for your operating system and install it.
Plug your SD card, select your image and click "Flash"
Download USBimager for your operating system and install it.
Plug your SD card, select your image and click "Write"
If you are on GNU/Linux / macOS and know your way around command line, you may also flash your USB stick or SD card with
dd. You can identify which device corresponds to your USB stick or SD card with
fdisk -l or
lsblk. A typical SD card name is something like
/dev/mmcblk0. BE CAREFUL and make sure you got the right name.
Then run :
# Replace /dev/mmcblk0 if the name of your device is different... dd if=/path/to/yunohost.img of=/dev/mmcblk0
If you are in the process of restoring a server using a YunoHost backup, you should skip this step and instead restore the backup instead of the postinstall step.
In an internet browser, type
If this doesn't work, you can look for the the local IP address of your server. The address typically looks like
192.168.x.y, and you should therefore type
https://192.168.x.y in your browser's address bar.
During the first visit, you will very likely encounter a security warning related to the certificate used by the server. For now, your server uses a self-signed certificate. You will later be able to add a certificate automatically recognized by web browsers as described in the certificate documentation. For now, you should add a security exception to accept the current certificate. (Though, PLEASE, do not take the habit of blindly accepting this kind of security alert!)
You can also perform the postinstallation with the command
yunohost tools postinstall directly on the server, or via SSH.
The diagnosis system is meant to provide an easy way to validate that all critical aspects of your server are properly configured - and guide you in how to fix issues. The diagnosis will run twice a day and send an alert if issues are detected.
N.B. : don't run away ! The first time you run the diagnosis, it is quite expected to see a bunch of yellow/red alerts because you typically need to configure DNS records (if not using a
ynh.fr domain), add a swapfile if not enough ram and/or port forwarding.
If an alert is not relevant (for example because you don't intend on using a specific feature), it is perfectly fine to flag the issue as 'ignored' by going in the webadmin > Diagnosis, and clicking the ignore button for this specifc issue.
To run a diagnosis, go on Web Admin in the Diagnosis section. You should get a screen like this :
yunohost diagnosis run yunohost diagnosis show --issues --human-readable
Once you configured DNS records and port forwarding (if needed), you should be able to install a Let's Encrypt certificate. This will get rid of the spooky security warning from earlier for new visitors.
For more detailled instructions, or to lean more about SSL/TLS certificates, see the corresponding page here.
You now have a pretty well configured server. If you're new to YunoHost, we recommend to have a look at the guided tour. You should also be able to install your favourite applications. Don't forget to plan backups !
