  • To install the Unifi controller you will need to add Ubiquiti’s and mongodDB’s repo to the sources list
echo "deb http://www.ubnt.com/downloads/unifi/distros/deb/debian debian ubiquiti" >> /etc/apt/sources.list
echo "deb http://downloads-distro.mongodb.org/repo/debian-sysvinit dist 10gen" >> /etc/apt/sources.list
  • You now need to add GPG keys
apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv C0A52C50; apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv 7F0CEB10
  • You can now install one of three version of the controller, Beta, Rapid and stable,
  • There are 3 packages in the same repository. unifi (the most stable) unifi-rapid (soaked beta) unifi-beta (the cutting edge)
apt-get update; apt-get install unifi-beta
service unifi restart
  • Once installed goto your browser and use this URL  “and of course replace with your server IP”

If it doesn’t load it will be one of these ‘MongoDB’ ‘java’ ‘iface lo’
