  • A beautiful, simple web-based dashboard for monitoring a linux server

  • Drop-in installation for PHP, Node.js, Python, and Go


Step 1: Download Linux Dash

Clone the git repo

git clone https://github.com/afaqurk/linux-dash.git

Or download it here.

Step 2: Secure Linux Dash

Linux Dash does not provide any security or authentication features.

It is strongly recommended that all Linux Dash installations be protected via a security measure of your choice.

Step 3: Start Linux Dash

Linux Dash can be run in: Node.js, PHP, Go, or Python.
* Node.js is the recommended platform since it has native support for websockets and fast I/O.

First, navigate to the linux-dash folder you downloaded or cloned.

Then, refer to the section for your preferred platform:


Install NPM dependencies

npm install

Start Linux Dash

node server/

Default port for Linux Dash is 80. You may change this in server/index.js on line 9

  1. Make sure you have the exec, shell_exec, and escapeshellarg functions enabled
  2. Restart your web server (Apache, nginx, etc.)


Go to the linux-dash/server folder and run

go run index.go

To build a binary, run go build && ./server -h. See @tehbilly's notes here for binary usage options


Run ./python-server.py will run a server on port 80 which is the default. You can change this in python-server.py on line 43
