How to configure Heroku on Ubuntu 16.04.3 x64

You need to enable JavaScript to run this app.

Today, I purchased Ubuntu 16.04.3 x64 server running on DigitalOcean infrastructure. It’s not too different than the ones on premise: Configuring Heroku is quite straight-forward. After ssh-ing, run the following commands with sudo:


wget https://cli-assets.heroku.com/heroku-cli/channels/stable/heroku-cli-linux-x64.tar.gz -O heroku.tar.gz
tar -xvzf heroku.tar.gz
mkdir -p /usr/local/lib /usr/local/bin

List the content of the current directory with ls. I found this output:


heroku-cli-v6.15.22–3f1c4bd-linux-x64
heroku.tar.gz

This output determines the value in the next step, use the first file name in the next command:


mv heroku-cli-v6.15.22-3f1c4bd-linux-x64 /usr/local/lib/heroku
ln -s /usr/local/lib/heroku/bin/heroku /usr/local/bin/heroku

And that’s it.
