Ubuntu Server – Add Static IP Address

To add a static IP Address to an ubuntu server you will need to make 2 changes.

1) Edit /etc/network/interfaces

auto lo eth0
iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet static
address *your ip address here*
netmask *your netmask here should be something like 255.255.255.248*
gateway *your gateway ip address here*

2) Edit /etc/resolv.conf

nameserver *your primary nameserver*
nameserver *your secondary nameserver*

3) restart networking

/etc/init.d/networking restart

4) run ifconfig

The result of ifconfig should show your updated results.
