Unclaimed Server

An unclaimed server is one that has been created using the ServerAvatar script, but has not yet been linked to any user account.

To create an unclaimed server in ServerAvatar, follow these steps:

Step 1: Create a clean/fresh Ubuntu 20.04 or 22.04 server. You can do this by creating a virtual machine on a cloud provider like DigitalOcean, Linode, AWS, or any other server.

Step 2: Enable incoming requests on port 43210. This port is used by ServerAvatar to manage the server.

Step 3: Log in to the server as the "root" user and execute the following commands in the console:

chmod +x install

These commands will download and run the ServerAvatar installation script, which will install all the necessary components and dependencies to manage the server.

Step 4: Once the installation is complete, the console will display a URL that you can use to claim the server in your ServerAvatar account. Follow the link and enter the server details to claim the server.

Step 5: Once the server is claimed, you can manage it from your ServerAvatar dashboard and install applications and configure settings as needed.

Note that unclaimed servers are not visible in the ServerAvatar dashboard until they are claimed. If you have multiple unclaimed servers, you can claim them all using the same process.
