Creating an App using the API

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

Getting Started After Deploying MonetDB

When Droplet is up and running the default setup is:

  • UFW firewall allow only SSH (port 22, rate limited), HTTP (port 80), and HTTPS (port 443).
  • dbfarm is initialized under /var/monetdb5/dbfarm
  • monetdbd is bound to local interface, and listens on default port 50000. Note that UFW

does not allow port 50000 by default.

You can allow more ports(e.g. 50000) by configuring UFW.
