How-to on installing UniFi on Ubuntu/Debian outdated - need help

I just spun up an Ubuntu 18.04 VPS on Digital Ocean, planning to migrate my UniFi and UNMS controllers from AWS. However, after following the instructions per this page (https://help.ubnt.com/hc/en-us/articles/220066768-UniFi-How-to-Install-Update-via-APT-on-Debian-or-U...) I end with APT not being able to locate the UniFi package. I don't know nearly enough about Linux systems to figure this out on my own. I believe the Ubuntu version I have running on AWS is 14, and on it those instructions worked flawlessly. Anyone else run into trouble? I saw a similar post on the forums but this solution involved downloading the UniFi package and installing it through the GUI.

Ran that script and I'm pretty sure it worked and UniFi is now running. However when I try to connect I just get some WingDings looking characters on the page.

Ok yeah I'm an idiot, forgot it doesn't automatically add the s when using a non-443 port Lol

Hello @sicarriere,

 

Thanks for recommending my scripts!

@mrniceguy  wasn't using https and port 8443 when connecting to the controller.

 

I posted this for future people!

Glenn R.
