Name your server, choose the hardware template and click create

When your server is installed and ready (takes about 15 min) it will show up under the “VM” tab.


Step 2 – Connect to your server, update the repository and install Mumble

As seen in the image below taken from the App Center, the standard login information is adminuser/CityCloud2 (You will have to change it when connecting to your server later on)

The IP-adress for your server is found by klicking on the “details” button on your Virtual Machine, under the “VM” tab.


Now that we have got the IP-adress and the login information, it´s time to connect to the server. We use Putty. Insert your IP-adress and click “open”.

Provide your login credentials and press Enter. At this stage, you will be asked to change your password.

NOW it´s time to install the Mumble server

Use these three commands to install the Mumble server
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:slicer
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install mumble

Congratulations, your Mumble server is installed and now comes the tricky part. How to setup your Mumble server
