New to litecoin - here for learning experience - help

I have access to an old server which I am accessing over the web but I get to go to the location if need be. I have an ubuntu clone installed. I downloaded litecoin core and it is up to date.

I do not see any way to get the mining started.

I do not see instructions and the forums are at the very least confusing.\

Can someone point me to official instructions on how to do it please?

Thank you.

Litecoin core is not for mining. Litecoin core is a full validating node that validates the transactions on the network.
