To install the software, follow these instructions on an Ubuntu 20.04 server, which comes preinstalled with Ubuntu 20.04 or a newer version. The default credentials for accessing the software, which is a Docker Stack being deployed, are as follows: Username: [email protected] and Password: livvck.

Server Resources:

  • CPU: 2 cores
  • RAM: 4 GB
  • Storage: 40 GB SSD

Step 1 - Update & Upgrade

The very first thing we do is update the package lists and packages on the server so that we are up to date.

apt update
apt upgrade

Step 2 - Install Dependencies

Now we install the necessary dependencies for the software, including Docker & Docker-Compose.

apt -y install unzip wget curl
curl | sh
apt -y install docker-compose

Step 3 - Download files from LIVCK

cd /opt && wget -4 -O

Step 3.1 - Unpacking LIVCK files


Step 3.2 - Move LIVCK files to correct folder

mkdir livck && mv LIVCK-self-hosted-*/* /opt/livck

Step 3.3 - Delete useless files

rm LIVCK-self-hosted-* -R && rm

Step 4 - Configure Application

Go into the livck folder

cd livck

Step 5 - Run the installation script

Give the script the correct permissions and run it

chmod 700
  1. If you choose to proceed with the installation, you will be prompted to provide the following information:

    • Project name (*)
    • License key (*)
    • Protocol preference (IPv6 -> 6, IPv4 -> 4, or press Enter)
    • Domain (e.g.,, without the protocol prefix) (*)
    • Notification providers configuration (y/n)? (*)
      • If yes, you will be asked to enter the Telegram Bot token and Pushover token.

  2. The script will generate an environment file named .env based on the provided information.

  3. A sample Nginx site configuration file will be copied as docker/web/sites/default.conf.

  4. The script will start the required Docker containers using docker-compose up -d.

  5. If SSL is enabled, the script will ask for an email address and run Certbot to obtain SSL certificates for your domain.

  6. Once the containers are running, the script will execute additional setup commands, such as database migration and caching.

  7. The script will set the necessary permissions for the application files.

  8. The installation process will be completed, and the script will display the following information:

    • Status page URL
    • Login credentials (URL, E-Mail, and Password)
