Hosting Writefreely on Scaleway


#1

Does anyone know how to host writefreely on Scaleway? I am confused on how to do anything and they have no articles regarding writefreely also. I am choosing this platform because it has the cheapest plan that is really awesome for any testing.

Scale way is just a VPS provider. So what you get from them is an IP address to access a virtual server provisioned with your chosen specs and preinstalled with your chosen OS. I’d chose Ubuntu personally for all the information available out there.

During setup you likely would be given a chance to provide a root password or one given to you.

You can take that and ssh into your vps. Many tutorials out in the web for sshing.

Once you are in follow the instructions from writefreely docs.

You might also need to use the providers web interface to open up ports in the firewall after its running.
