I noticed that my server version of Ubuntu doesn't have the add-apt-repository command. Is there a way I can a PPA to my server without it?

    Hi,

    Yes, you can do this by running this command:

    sudo apt-get install software-properties-common

    Then, you can add your repository running:

    sudo add-apt-repository [REPOSITORY]

    Remember to replace [REPOSITORY] with the repository name you want to add.

    I hope it will work for you.

    Thanks & Regards
