Change Ubuntu Server from DHCP to a Static IP Address

  • Open up the /etc/network/interfaces file. For the primary interface, which is usually eth0, you will see these lines:
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp

Change it to values similar to:

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
  • Add the DNS settings in the /etc/resolv.conf file. On the line ‘name server’ replace the x with the IP of your name server. (You can do ifconfig /all to find out what they are)

sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart
