Installing Cal.com on Ubuntu Server

Cal.com is a powerful scheduling and event management tool that helps individuals and businesses keep track of their appointments and events. In this tutorial, we'll go through the process of installing Cal.com on Ubuntu Server.

Prerequisites

Installing Cal.com

  1. First, you need to download the Cal.com package. Go to the Cal.com website (https://cal.com/) and click on "Get Started".

  2. On the next page, you will be asked to create an account. Once you have created an account, log in and click on "Install Cal" from the top navigation menu.

  3. Scroll down to the "Server" section and select the version of Ubuntu Server that you are using.

  4. Click on the "Download" button to download the Cal.com package to your local computer.

  5. Once the package has finished downloading, transfer it to your Ubuntu Server using your preferred file transfer method. For example, you can use the scp command to transfer the package from your local computer to your server:

    scp /path/to/cal.com.deb user@your_server_ip:/path/to/
    
  6. Connect to your Ubuntu Server via SSH and navigate to the directory where you saved the Cal.com package.

  7. Install the Cal.com package using the following command:

    sudo dpkg -i cal.com.deb
    

    This will install Cal.com on your server.

  8. After the installation is complete, start the Cal.com service using the following command:

    sudo systemctl start cal.com
    
  9. By default, the Cal.com service will not start automatically when your server boots up. To enable automatic startup, run the following command:

    sudo systemctl enable cal.com
    

Congratulations! You have successfully installed Cal.com on your Ubuntu Server. You can now access the Cal.com web interface by navigating to http://your_server_ip:8080 in your web browser.
