Creating an App using the API

In addition to creating a Droplet from the Metaverse 1-Click App using the control panel, you can also use the DigitalOcean API. As an example, to create a 4GB Metaverse 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' \

PLEASE NOTE: First Time Installation and Setup Time will take approximately 10 minutes to 1 hour (and possibly longer due to A Record update and propagation). This is due to several additional service accounts that need to be created to support multiplayer as well as optimization steps that allow your Metaverse galaxy to be interoperable and to help to increase the speed of the overall experience.

Welcome to your new Chaarmi Worlds Metaverse Galaxy game! We’re so excited to have you with us expanding the metaverse and future 3D internet!

Chaarmi Worlds works in web browsers on PC (Chrome), Mac (Chrome) and Oculus Quest 2 in VR. It is fully interoperable allowing users to jump from plot to plot and is always being updated with new updates based on YOU our users! We are so grateful to have you enter the metaverse!

PART 2 - Add an “A” Record to Domain

Step 1:

Go to your domain name provider and add a new “A” record as follows:

  1. In your Domain Name provider, click on the domain name you want to add an “A” record to.
  2. Go to DNS management
  3. Select “A” record
  4. Add “A” record with the following details:

Step 6:

Now wait for few hours to get domain record updated from your Domain Provider. In a new browser window open the metaverse.yourdomain.ext and see if it opens. When it does you can move onto the next part.

PART 3 - SSL Certbot Installation and Python Upgrades

Step 1:

In your DigitalOcean dashboard select your droplet and inside your droplet in the top right you should see a “Console” link. Click on that to open up a console window so you can now write linux commands via command line.

Step 2:

Write the following commands to setup and install SSL and upgrade the server (Please do these one command at a time):

  1. apt-get update
  2. sudo apt install python3 python3-venv libaugeas0
  3. sudo python3 -m venv /opt/certbot/
  4. sudo /opt/certbot/bin/pip install –upgrade pip
  5. sudo /opt/certbot/bin/pip install certbot certbot-apache
  6. sudo ln -s /opt/certbot/bin/certbot /usr/bin/certbot
  7. sudo certbot –apache

Enter your domain name: metaverse.yourdomain.ext

On the “Please choose whether or not redirect HTTP traffic to HTTPS, removing HTTP access.” question, please choose to REDIRECT (Option 2)

  1. Finally check your domain by typing in a new window https://metaverse.yourdomainname.ext/install.php
  2. If it is working your SSL is now up and running and you can move onto the next part.

PART 4 - MySQL Database Privileges for chaarmiuser

Step 1:

In your DigitalOcean dashboard select your droplet and inside your droplet in the top right you should see a “Console” link. Click on that to open up a console window so you can now write linux commands via commandline.

Step 2:

Write the following commands to upgrade privileges on the database:

  1. sudo mysql [NOTE: This will put you into the MySQL system]
  2. ALTER USER ‘chaarmiuser’@’localhost’ IDENTIFIED WITH mysql_native_password BY ‘Chaarmipass’;

[NOTE: Choose a password that is secure and write it down!! You will need it in a later step]


PART 5 - Chaarmi Base System Setup

Step 1:

Open https://metaverse.domain.ext/install.php

Step 2:

Do the following steps to complete the install:

  1. Enter database host: localhost
  2. Enter database name: chaarmi
  3. Enter database username: chaarmiuser
  4. Enter database password: Chaarmipass [NOTE: This should be the same password as the earlier step and should be secure!!]

Step 3:

When all is good and the database connection is made we need to do the following steps to complete the installation:

  1. Visit to obtain a Sendgrid key
  2. Visit to obtain a Photon Realtime API Key
  3. Choose an Admin username (You can keep it simple, like admin)
  4. Choose an Admin password (This will be used for your Chaarmi Worlds backend)
  5. Choose an Admin email that you want to use as your main admin email

You can now test out your backend admin panel by visiting https://metaverse.domain.ext/my-admin/

FINAL STEPS (For downloading Plots and CUSTOM items):

If you do not do this step you will get the following error when trying to EXPORT a plot “Unable to open file!”

-Go into FileZilla and set the PERMISSIONS on your my-admin folder to 777 and try again

Finally please go to FileZilla and make a new folder with 777 permissions called my-content. This is where you will from now on upload all additional files. In future when updating your version of Chaarmi DO NOT delete this folder. Simply delete everything else and upload the other files.



Step 1:

Via FileZilla download the frontend index.php file and then navigate down to where you see (Approx. line 604):

host: "", port: 443,

Change host to:

Change port to: 9000

Save and upload the file back in order to make sure the system works. This is a REQUIRED step as the main system has changed.


Incase of any issues with the installation, try this below to see if it fixes the issue:

-Open up your console window on your server

-type in the following commands:

sudo mysql

drop database chaarmi;

create database chaarmi;

-Try the install again

CONGRATULATIONS! Welcome to the Metaverse!

We hope you Enjoy Your New Chaarmi Metaverse Galaxy! [NOTE: We recommend you take a snapshot in your DigitalOcean backend to make a backup of your current system so anytime you have any issues you can easily restart without having to do all these steps again.]

Admin Panel is available at:https://metaverse.DOMAIN.EXT/my-admin/

NOTE: Please use the username and password you created at setup time.

Access to the base experience at:https://metaverse.DOMAIN.EXT (This will take you to your genesis plot which you can update at any time via the backend admin panel)

OLD PART 5 Step 4 and Beyond For Optimization and Issues

Step 4:

Final steps, please return to the DigitalOcean console view. If the view is not available you can easily go back to your DigitalOcean dashboard and load up the console on the droplet again. Please type in the following commands via console which will setup the final items we need to be able to export our plots of land and access those plots in any Chaarmi Galaxy you wish to share it with including your own (CORS Policy):

  1. First exit out of any app. If you are in mysql just type in exit and hit enter.
  2. cd /var/www/html
  3. mv db.php ../db_connect_info
  4. rm install.php
  5. sudo chmod -R 777 my-admin
  6. cd /etc/php/7.4/apache2
  7. nano php.ini

Step 5:

In the nano editor make the following changes and save the php file:

  1. max_execution_time = 3000
  2. max_input_time = 3000
  3. max_input_vars = 3000 [NOTE: Remove the semi-colon at the start]
  4. memory_limit = 1024M [NOTE: Based on size of your droplet ram]
  5. [GO DOWN THE FILE MORE] post_max_size = 1024M
  6. [GO DOWN THE FILE MORE] upload_max_filesize = 1024M
  7. Save file by hitting CTRL+S
  8. Exit by hitting CTRL+X [NOTE: To undo, hit ALT+U]
  9. Once exited nano, restart php by typing in the following command:

sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

Step 6:

We will now setup the CORS policy which allows for access to plots you share and vice versa.

  1. sudo a2enmod headers
  2. nano /etc/apache2/apache2.conf
  3. Copy and Paste the following to the bottom of the apache2.conf file
<Directory /var/www/html>
     Order Allow,Deny
     Allow from all
     AllowOverride all
     Header set Access-Control-Allow-Origin "*"
  1. Hit CTRL+S to save file
  2. Hit CTRL+X to exit
  3. systemctl restart apache2
