Using at Digital Ocean

Digital Ocean provides fast, low cost virtual servers that are well suited for Koken. We have a dedicated article on our help site with instructions on how to use this Docker image at Digital Ocean.

General usage

If you aren't using Digital Ocean, you just need to ensure that your host is compatible with Docker and then follow the instructions below.

  1. Install Docker.
  2. Use our simple wrapper script to start Koken.
wget -qO - | sudo bash

This forwards port 80 on your host machine to the instance of Koken running on port 8080 inside the container. You can now access your new Koken install by loading the IP address or domain name for your host in a browser. Your files reside in /data/koken/www on the host machine, while the MySQL data lives in /data/koken/mysql.
