Installation is easy. Just follow a few simple steps:

Step 1: Make sure that your server is running a supported operating system (amd64 or arm64):

  • Debian 10
  • Debian 11
  • Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
  • Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
  • Ubuntu 22.04 LTS

Step 2: Log in as the system user (root):

You'll need to connect to your server as root, either directly from the console or remotely using SSH.

Step 3: Download the installer:

wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/hestiacp/hestiacp/release/install/hst-install.sh

Step 4: Run the installer and follow the prompts:

bash hst-install.sh

To perform an unattended installation (with defaults):

bash hst-install.sh --interactive no --email [email protected] --password p4ssw0rd --hostname hostname.domain.tld -f

Or modify your installation with for example:

bash hst-install.sh --apache no --postgresql yes --clamav no --spamassassin no

Will install Hestia without Apache2, ClamAV and Spamassassin How ever it will install Postgresql as additional feature

More options or examples can be found in the Documentation or use the Install string generator
