At the Creative Monkeys office and at Phonoid we use UniFi APs. So we have to run UniFi Controller to take advantage of all their functionalities. Let's then see how to install and run it on a dedicated Debian host.
To start let's set a static IP address to the host./etc/network/interfaces :
Add repositories :/etc/apt/sources.list.d/10gen.list : /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ubiquiti.list :
and their keys :
Update and upgrade packages :
Install Java and UniFi packages :
Start the service :
The UniFi Controller is now running at :8443. You can sign in and start adopting your APs !
I hope this guide will help someone or Future Me.
