How to Launch Solodev CMS
Getting to the Solodev Launchpad is easy. In just a few short steps, you'll be lifting off on AWS.
Step 1: Subscribe on the AWS Marketplace
Solodev is a professionally managed, enterprise-class Content Management System (CMS). Before launching one of our products, you'll first need to subscribe to Solodev on the AWS Marketplace. Click the button below to get started:
Already have a Solodev license? Call 1-800-859-7656 and we’ll activate your subscription for you.
Step 2: Return to this Solodev Product Page
Once you complete your subscription the AWS Marketplace, simply return to this Solodev CMS Lite Edition product page.
Step 3: Configure Your VPC and EC2 Key Pair
Step 4: Launch your CloudFormation Stack
|AWS Region Code||Name||Launch|
|us-east-1||US East (N. Virginia)|
|us-east-2||US East (Ohio)|
|us-west-1||US West (N. California)|
|us-west-2||US West (Oregon)|
The following parameters must be configured to launch your Solodev CMS CloudFormation stack:
|Stack name||The name of your stack (set to "solodev-cms-lite" by default). Please note, the name must be all lowercase.|
|VPCID||Choose which VPC the Application should be deployed to|
|Subnets||Choose at least two public subnets for this application|
|InstanceType||EC2 instance type|
|KeyName||Name of an existing EC2 KeyPair to enable SSH access to the instances|
|HostVolumeSize||Size in GB of root volume|
|Deletion Policy||Experimental: Deletion Policy (Retain, Delete, Snapshot)|
Step 5: View CloudFormation Stack Outputs
If your stack builds successfully, you will see the green "CREATE_COMPLETE" message. Click on the primary stack and view the "Outputs" tab. You will find the IP address associated with the Solodev backend.
Step 6: Login to Solodev
Navigate to the EC2 dashboard within AWS. View the details associated with the recently created EC2 server and take note of the "Instance ID" as this will be the default password for the CMS admin account.
Visit the IP address acquired in Step 7. Login to the CMS using the username "Solodev". The password will be the "Instance ID" that corresponds to the recently launched EC2 Server.
