Easiest way via a GUI (Graphic User Interface) is to install pysadm.
Rather than go into how to do that from the terminal (you *will* need to
learn to use the terminal when using Ubuntu, but I'll leave that for
others to explain), you can install & use directly via the GUI. Here is
a youtube on how to do that.
