4. Connect

Once the instance is ready, take its Public IPv4 (1) and connect to it using SSH and the key pair you selected previously.
Retrieve Public IP
ssh -i path/to/keypair.pem ubuntu@[PUBLIC IP]
Once you are logged in, run the setup command and follow the on-screen instructions.
You will be asked to enter the domain here. All other values are optional. The installation script will start docker-compose, download all images and start them in the right order.
After you make sure the domain you configured is pointing to the public IP of your instance and that the DNS changes propagated, go to and you should be ready to go.
For further help, go to Configuration.
