Create a server with Ubuntu Xenial 16.04 (x64) and run these commands:
wget https://cloudron.io/cloudron-setup chmod +x cloudron-setup ./cloudron-setup --provider <azure|cloudscale|digitalocean|ec2|exoscale|linode|ovh|scaleway|vultr|generic>
Cloudron requires atleast 1GB RAM, 20GB Disk space. Make sure the firewall does not block port 80 (http) and 443 (https). Cloudron does not support running on ARM, OpenVZ or LXC.
Once the installation is complete, navigate to
https://<IP> and accept the self-signed certificate.
Cloudron can also be installed on a non-registrable domain like
with an Enterprise subscription. This allows for setups where you can host
Cloudrons under the same top level domain for each of your customers like
customer2.myhosting.com and so on.
For installing the enterprise version of Cloudron, navigate to
Provide a second level domain like
Cloudron's web interface will then be available at the
my.smartserver.io and apps will be installed
into subdomains like
git.smartserver.io and so son.
It is safe to use a domain name that is already in use, just make sure that the
my subdomain is available.
Select the DNS service in which the domain in hosted:
When using one of the programmable backends, Cloudron will automatically make changes to DNS as and when required.
Once the DNS is setup, Cloudron will get a certificate via Let's Encrypt and redirect to
https://my.<domain>. The browser address bar will show a green lock to indicate
that the connection to your Cloudron is now secure.
Enter the adminstrator username, email and password for the Cloudron. Some usernames like
are unfortunately reserved because apps attach special meanings to them.
The email id entered here is local to your Cloudron and not sent anywhere (including cloudron.io).
Let's Encrypt requires a valid email
Cloudron sets up a Let's Encrypt account with the administrator's email. If this email is not valid, Let's Encrypt will not issue certificates.
