I’m a FreeBSD fan, I prefer to use FreeBSD as the web server if possible.
In the pass Linode doesn’t support FreeBSD, people who want to use FreeBSD have to choose Digital Ocean or other service provider.
And in earlier this year, Linode has migrated all VPS from Xen to KVM, and it made installing FreeBSD on Linode VPS possible. But FreeBSD is not official supported by Linode. You can’t deploy FreeBSD via Linode control panel. So I wrote this article to share my experience about how to install FreeBSD on Linode.
1. Add a new linode VPS.
2. Go to the dashboard, and create a new vDisk.
