Creating an App using the API

In addition to creating a Droplet from the Curiosity 1-Click App using the control panel, you can also use the DigitalOcean API. As an example, to create a 4GB Curiosity Droplet in the SFO2 region, you can use the following curl command. You need to either save your API access token) to an environment variable or substitute it in the command below.

curl -X POST -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
         -H 'Authorization: Bearer '$TOKEN'' -d \
        '{"name":"choose_a_name","region":"sfo2","size":"s-2vcpu-4gb","image": "curiositygmbh-curiosity-16-04"}' \

Getting Started After Deploying Curiosity

You’ll need to add two volumes attached to your droplet.

  • Data storage (default name: volume-curiosity-data)
  • Backup (default name: volume-curiosity-backup)

Size the volumes accordingly to your data requirements. You can always increase the volume size after by first shutting down your droplet, resizing the existing volumes, and restarting it.

To connect to your droplet, use the command ssh root@your_droplet_public_ipv4

You can access the system online via https://your_droplet_public_ipv4.

By default it will use a self-signed https certificate - so you will see a “Insecure connection” when accessing it.

Please remember to change the default admin password once you first log in the site (admin / admin)
