How to Install Cockpit on Ubuntu 22.04

The cockpit is a web-based system administration service used to manage server services, server storage, configure networks, inspect logs, update server OS packages, and much more. Thanks to its web-based management, keeping track of what’s going on with your server is easier than ever. The cockpit also makes it easier for users that don’t have much experience with servers to better manage their systems without having to learn to use the command line.

Install Cockpit

apt install cockpit

After that's finished, check the status.

systemctl start cockpit

systemctl status couchbase-server

Output:
