Creating an App using the API

In addition to creating a Droplet from the FASTPANEL 1-Click App using the control panel, you can also use the DigitalOcean API. As an example, to create a 4GB FASTPANEL 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": "fastpanel-deb-9"}' \

Getting Started After Deploying FASTPANEL

Note: When deploying the “FASTPANEL® 1-Click App Droplet” you can add an SSH key. In case you don’t add SSH-key, you will receive an e-mail containing root credentials.

  1. Set password for fastuser via SSH connection using the following command:

mogwai chpasswd -u fastuser -p YourNewPasswordHere 2. Go to https://YourDropletIP:8888 and sign in as fastuser

Before the first FASTPANEL login, it will ask you for a license. In order to get it, you need to specify an email address a confirmation email shall be sent to in order to create a license. To finish license creation you will need to follow the link in the email. As soon as the license will be created, click the “Check” button in FASTPANEL. If all goes successful - you will be redirected to the login page.


The first time you sign in FASTPANEL®, you will get a “Not Secure” certificate warning, which can be safely ignored as it is already protected by self-signed certificate.

  3. Open “DNS Account Settings” tab, then click “Add”, change “Type” to “DigitalOcean” and fill your API token.
