Install Terraform on an Ubuntu Server

| ubuntu | devops |

Terraform by Hashicorp is a powerful tool that you can use to manage your infrastructure as code. It is distributed as a single binary so getting it installed on Ubuntu is a breeze.

  1. Assuming you are on a "standard" computer or server. From the downloads page copy the URL for the 64-bit Linux package. At the time of writing this was: https://releases.hashicorp.com/terraform/0.11.7/terraform_0.11.7_linux_amd64.zip
  2. SSH into your ubuntu server and execute wget https://releases.hashicorp.com/terraform/0.11.7/terraform_0.11.7_linux_amd64.zip
  3. Unzip this file (you may need to install the unzip package with sudo apt-get install unzip)
  4. Move the file to the /usr/local/bin directory with sudo mv terraform /usr/local/bin/
You can confirm that this works by typing in terraform -version in your terminal. Your output should look something like this.
ubuntu@ip-172-26-5-139:~$ terraform -version
Terraform v0.11.7
You should now be able to execute the terraform command from anywhere and manage your infrastructure as code.
