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": "webkul-qloapps-18-04"}' \

Getting Started After Deploying QloApps

After creation of the droplet you can ssh login to your droplet.

To login to your droplet from linux/mac system run below command

When you login to your droplet for the first time, it will ask for the domain name for QloApps setup. You must map your domain to your droplet ip beforehand. If you do not have any domain you just need to put your droplet ip.

After Initial setup is completed, you can open your QloApps url in the browser for rest of the setup.

For the rest of the setup in the browser, use below details for database configuration.

Database name : qloapps

Database login : qloapps

Database password : password stored in /root/.digitalocean_password

Look for password inside the file by running the command

cat /root/.digitalocean_password

For backend login, it will ask you to remove the install directory.

Your web directory is /var/www/html .

About DigitalOcean Managed DBaaS

If you select to install a DigitalOcean Managed Database while creating this 1-click app, DigitalOcean handles the creation of the database cluster as well as the Droplet. The Droplet will have a DATABASE_URL environment variable configured including a database connection string, such as:

*** postgresql://doadmin:@dbaas-db-11111-do-user-1111111-1.b.db.ondigitalocean.com:25060/defaultdb?sslmode=require***

Your managed database configuration and credentials will be stored in /root/.digitalocean_dbaas_credentials

Please note that there is additional configuration needed to connect your managed database to this droplet after creation.
