How To Set Static IP Address on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS

Set Static IP Address on Ubuntu 22.04

In this tutorial, we will show you how to set a static IP address on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS. For those of you who didn’t know, After installing Ubuntu 22.04 the default network interface comes two main options. You can either obtain an IP address automatically with Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP), or configure the system to use a static IP address, which never changes.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the Zoom on Ubuntu 22.04 (Jammy Jellyfish). You can follow the same instructions for Ubuntu 22.04 and any other Debian-based distribution like Linux Mint, Elementary OS, Pop!_OS, and more as well.

Prerequisites

  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Ubuntu 22.04, 20.04, and any other Debian-based distribution like Linux Mint.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
  • A non-root sudo useror access to the root user. We recommend acting as a non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.
