How to Install Python on a VPS Server

Installing Python on a VPS server is a relatively straightforward task that varies slightly based on the operating system behind the VPS.

The steps below will assume you've logged in to a terminal session on the VPS.


Step 1 - Update Your Packages

[Ubuntu/Debian]

  sudo apt update

or

[CentOS]

  sudo yum update


Step 2 - Install Python 3.x

[Ubuntu/Debian]

  sudo apt install python3

or

[CentOS]

  sudo yum install python3

Barring any unforeseen problems, you should be done at this point.

To confirm the installation is complete, while still at a terminal prompt, type:

  python3

You should be launched into a full-blown python interpreter session.
