firstly is it possible to install eclipse on ubuntu in digial ocean and if so how to do that?

I have tried to search for eclipse and found out packages using SUDO APT SEARCH ECLIPSE; yet i failed to install eclipse in the digital ocean. i have installed LAMP ubuntu 16.04 and works fine! I have installed openjdk-8-jdk successfully! and looking for help from digital ocean staff or community experts in devops; could not find any Youtube videos or anything so i wonder how they would do it if it is possible?!

Thanks in advance sag


Thanks mgiwrox! I remember that i came across this before! i should again start using it.


As you mention, that is Eclipse CHE and not Eclipse IDE. Try using docker. It is the most simple and straight forward way.

hi mohsen, I know i can copy my file usig filezilla to my server, but there are cloud version of eclipse that one develops the server and runs it at the same time like devops no deployment is necessary and one may have option to check the performance of the app. I have used eclipse on cloud but i dont remeber where was it in AWS or AZURE? dont know!



Eclipse IDE is a desktop application with a GUI, you install it on your own workstation and run the code locally then you can copy the code to the server and run it there.

Hi wadenick again, By Eclipse I meant Eclipse IDE! BR SAG

Yes wadenick, I want to install Eclipse in my VPS/LAMP server to do some devops and see where i can go from there.

I am not sure if everyone got my previous complete instructions of installing eclipse Che and running it from browser but I did it and it almost works. I have still some problems but may because i run the entire thing from my cloud account! it is really devops and no need to install anything on my macOS! docker is amazing and makes things very easy.
