Download Shiny Server for Ubuntu 16.04 or later

We currently only provide a pre-built binary for the 64-bit architecture. Running on other architectures will require building from source.

Before installing Shiny Server, you’ll need to install R and the Shiny package. To install the latest version of R you should first add the CRAN repository to your system as described here:

You can then install R using the following command:

sudo apt-get install r-base

NOTE: if you do not add the CRAN Debian or Ubuntu repository as described above this command will install the version of R corresponding to your current system version. Since this version of R may be a year or two old it is strongly recommended that you add the CRAN repositories so you can run the most up to date version of R.

You’ll also need to install the Shiny R package before installing Shiny Server:

sudo su - \
-c "R -e \"install.packages('shiny', repos='')\""

If you’re using a version of R older than R 3.2.2, you may need to take additional actions as described here in order to successfully download and install the package securely. Alternatively, you can download the package insecurely in any version of R by using HTTP instead of HTTPS for the CRAN mirror.

Once you’ve installed R and the Shiny package, execute the following commands in a terminal window to install gdebi (which is used to install Shiny Server and all of its dependencies) and Shiny Server.
