step 1: Setting up your LightNode Server

Begin by setting up your Debian 11 server on LightNode. You can select a server from any region, based on your requirements. For this tutorial, the lowest configuration will suffice. Once you have your server ready, move on to the next step.

Step 2: Connecting to your Serve

Connect to your server using your preferred method. This could be through an SSH client like PuTTY, or directly through your terminal if you're using a Linux or macOS machine.

Step 3: Installing Ajenti2

The installation of Ajenti is a straightforward process involving just three commands. Execute these commands one by one:

apt-get update

apt-get update

apt-get install curl sudo

This command installs the curl and sudo packages. Curl is a tool for transferring data with URL syntax, and sudo (superuser do) is a utility that allows users to run programs with the security privileges of another user (normally the superuser, or root).

apt-get install curl sudo

curl | sudo bash -s -

Install Ajenti
