Getting started after deploying Passbolt CE

  1. Point your domain DNS to this machine IP address. Please check DigitalOcean DNS documentation or your domain name provider help for this.
  2. Wait until the DNS propagation is done. To check if it is done, ping your domain and it should resolve to this Droplet IP. You can also check the propagation using online tools.
  3. Login to this Droplet via SSH as root: ssh root@this_Droplet_ip or ssh Use this same ssh connection to gather the randomly generated mysql credentials in /root/.mysql_credentials you will need them for the web installation wizard.
  4. Follow the instructions. A script will be launched, choose the automatic configuration option and let the script guide you. Once you’re done, point your browser to the DNS assigned to this Droplet: and you will then see the web installation wizard. In case of issues check out the installation documentation on the help site. You can also you can post a new entry on the community forum.

API Creation

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

As an example, to create a 4GB Passbolt CE 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":"passbolt-18-04"}' \
