Step 1: Click Add and Select Server Button to create your Server, add your Drive, Private Vlan or Static IP
You are now in the control panel. Here you can set up, stop and start servers, and create and manage
the drives that you install the servers on to.
How to setup Cloud Linux or Windows Server
In the top menu bar, you’ll see an ‘Add’ button for adding servers and drives. Add a server called ‘test’, pre-installed with CentOS Linux 5.5 and a 50 GB drive, and click on ‘Add’.
NOTE: Please doesn’t use pre-installed type when using Windows OS for DEMO, Microsoft will charge us a month cost and consider we purchase the license!
You can set up pre-installed servers and drives for many common operating systems, here are the options available when you’re adding new instances
Your server and its drive will appear in the control panel, but the drive will initially show “imaging” while the operating system is copied onto it. Wait a few seconds until the image processing has finished.
On your server, click the Start icon. In your server, you will see an IP address and VNC password which you will require for the next step.
You also can edit your server capacity and please make sure you turn off your server before your proceed with edit configuration.
Step 3: Install VNC
We provide basic VNC access to all servers, which work from the BIOS onwards, and allows you to install, configure and recover your operating system.
In normal use, you should access your server by a native method (e.g. SSH, VNC installed inside your operating system on port 5901 or Windows Remote Desktop/RDP), which will provide superior performance.
VNC access requires a client supporting a recent version of the VNC protocol. We recommend the following VNC clients depending on your operating system:
Windows: TightVNC Viewer (not server) is recommended
Linux: Vinagre (or others built on gtk-vnc)
MacOS: RealVNC (where none of Apple Remote Desktop, Chicken of the VNC or JollysFastVNC work).
Note: RealVNC works on Windows, Linux and MacOS if you select “Always use best available colour quality” – the Linux and MacOS versions are available as free downloads under Enterprise Edition Viewer.
Step 4: Connect via VNC or SSH
Start your VNC client, and enter the IP address and VNC password which are given in the server box on our control panel.
When VNC logs in, that brings you to the virtual desktop of the server.
Enter the username “root” to login without a password, or the username “toor” with your VNC password. (LINUX).
Enter the username “Administrator” to login without a password, or the username “skalicloudR2” with your VNC password. (WINDOWS).
Now your server is running, it is a fully-functional. You can shut it down and the data will be stored on the drive. You can reboot (restart) it again and the data will still be there, along with the configuration and the data and the software that you’ve installed on it.
