Cockpit is a free and super easy to use web-based tool that makes managing servers simple. The guys working at Cockpit proudly define it as:

“See your server in a web browser and perform system tasks with a mouse. It’s easy to start containers, administer storage, configure networks, and inspect logs.”

Some of its features are

  1. Manage the containers via Docker
  2. Modify the network settings
  3. Easily manage the user accounts

Now, let us see how we can install it on an Ubuntu machine. But before that, you have to add a 9090 port in your security group.

First let us update the system packages

$sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

Install Cockpit

$sudo apt install cockpit

Enable Cockpit

$sudo systemctl start cockpit
$sudo systemctl status cockpit

Cockpit on the Web

After successful installation hit your IP or domain and make sure the Cockpit is working on port number 9090. Something like below:

0.0.1.3:9090
