Installation on AWS

AWS by default disables root login. To login as root inside AWS, login as default user and then use command sudo -s.

$ ssh ubuntu@<your server IP address>
$ ubuntu@aws:~$ sudo -s
$ root@aws:~# wget -O - | bash

Remember to open ports: 22, 80 and 443!

Installation Note

Before you can use Cipi, please make sure your server fulfils these requirements:

  • Ubuntu 20.04 x86_64 LTS (Fresh installation)
  • If the server is virtual (VPS), OpenVZ may not be supported
  • We are checking Cipi compatibility within Oracle / ARM (not full supported yet)

Hardware Requirement: More than 1GB of HD / At least 1 core processor / 512MB minimum RAM / At least 1 public IP Address (IPv6 and NAT VPS are not supported) / For VPS providers such as AWS, those providers already include an external firewall for your VPS. Please open port 22, 80 and 443 to install Cipi.

Installation may take up to about 30 minutes which may also depend on your server's internet speed. After the installation is completed, you are ready to use Cipi to manage your servers.

To correctly manage remote servers Cipi has to be on a public IP address (IPv4). Do not use it in localhost!
