Software Included

Getting started after deploying Repman

After you create a Repman One-Click Droplet:

  • prepare and connect your domain
  • login via SSH
  • run cd repman
  • run (replace repman.instance with your domain name) ansible-playbook ansible/setup.yml -i ansible/inventories/local --extra-vars '{"server_hostname":"repman.instance","app_git_branch":"0.4.1"}'

Add admin user:

  • change user to repman: sudo su repman
  • enter project root: cd /var/www/repman
  • run command bin/console repman:create:admin

API Creation

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

As an example, to create a 4GB Repman 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":"buddy-repman-18-04"}' \
