Getting started after deploying GrandNode

In addition to the package installation, the One-Click also:

  • Enables the UFW firewall to allow only SSH (port 22, rate limited), HTTP (port 80) access.### QuickstartAfter you create a GrandNode One-Click Droplet, you will have to install it. At this point, you should visit the Droplet’s IP address in your browser.
    Steps that you have to do:

  • Specify the admin e-mail/password

  • Mark the checkbox if you want to install sample data

  • Fill the server name - by default localhost:27017

  • Leave the login and password empty

  • Specify supported collationOnce the installation is complete, please reboot your machine and you can use the GrandNode administration dashboard (by default available on /admin) to further customize the new store. In addition, there are a few steps that we recommend you take - install SSL certificate and purchase a domain for your store.

    Setting up an SSL certificate enables HTTPS connection, which secures the traffic between the server and the clients. After you install a SSL certificate, you need to allow access from port 443.
    For a more detailed walkthrough, you can follow How to Secure Nginx with Let’s Encrypt.

API Creation

In addition to creating a Droplet from the GrandNode 1-Click App via the control panel, you can also use the DigitalOcean API.

As an example, to create a 4GB GrandNode Droplet in the SFO2 region, you can use the following curl command. You’ll need to either save your API access token to an environment variable or substitute it into 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":"grandnode-18-04"}' \
      "https://api.digitalocean.com/v2/droplets"
