Quick Setup of CasaOS
Now we have enough information about the Casa, let’s try to install it. Before installing the casa, first boot your Raspberry Pi with Raspian OS. Use the Raspberry Pi imager tool to do that.
Once installed, the software opens the tool.
Next, choose the OS type.
Then select the drive. One of the great features of this tool is we can add the SSH and Wi-Fi credentials directly into the OS file, even without turning on the Raspberry Pi. For that, select the settings icon in the tool.
Next, start burning the OS into the SD card.
Once the writing is finished, insert the SD card into the Raspberry Pi.
Then power on the device. The first time it will take some time to boot and connect to Wi-Fi. In about 5–10 minutes look at your router status, and you can see there will be a new device connected to your router.
Next, use serial terminal software to communicate with SSH.
Then run this command to install the CasaOS.
curl -fsSL https://get.casaos.io | sudo bash
You will see this message on the terminal, and the entered command will try to install all the necessary components regarding the CasaOS.
Once the installation is finished, you will see this kind of message also the IP address of the Casa Server.
Next type the IP in your Brower, and you will see the CasaOS on screen.
And then click Go and enter your access details for the CasaOS.
Finally, you will see the beautiful home screen.
Next, click on the app store, and you can see there is a bunch of available apps.
Also, open the file manager, and you will see all the files of your Raspberry Pi,
Not only the system drive, but It will show you the removable drive also.
That’s all about the CasaOS, it’s a very beautiful, simple, and lightweight OS, right? And it also includes a bunch of apps, including Pihole, Plex, and many more.
