Prepare The Operating System

cherryEPG has been developed on Debian Linux and can be run on any of its derivatives. We recommend to start with a very commonly used distribution Ubuntu. You can use any of the many available installation instructions to install it.

Ubuntu 24.04 (Noble Numbat) - server install

For cherryEPG no graphical user interface is required, therefore we recommend to install the Server install image.

For beginners with Linux OS we recommend this starter tutorial to install the system.

We also support advanced users and provide packages for other still Debian based distributions.
