Debian / Ubuntu¶
Except for minor differences, this guide applies to both Debian and Ubuntu. It has been tested with Debian 10 (Buster) and Ubuntu 20.04 (Focal).
Older distributions may work, but they are unsupported. We do not recommend using those unless you have a strong reason for it and the necessary system administration knowledge to know how to deal with compatibility issues should any arise.
Please note that you must use Apache if you intend to use SSO using Shibboleth. If that’s not the case because you do not use SSO at all or use e.g. OAuth, OIDC or SAML without Shibboleth, we recommend using nginx.
