The Silverstripe CMS uses PHP. To install it, you would simply extract the zip file into the web root of your server, visit your IP address in the browser, and run the install script. To get started, you could follow this tutorial to get your basic LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySql, PHP) stack up and running, or you could launch the LAMP one-click application.

If you are using Ubuntu 14.04, extract the zip into the /var/www/html folder. You might also need to fix the permissions on the file:

chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www/html
