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

Step 2

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.

Options available when you’re adding new instances:

  • You can add a server or a drive only. When you add a server, you get the drive and a server that’s set up to boot from that drive. When you add a drive, you just get the drive.
  • You can supply a name for the server and/or drive.

Then we have a range of installation types:

  • Pre-installed: take one of our standard images and make a copy of it onto a drive in your own account. We have Debian, Ubuntu, a variety of Linux and Windows images.
  • Self-install from CD: here the server is running one of the install CDs we have provided centrally, and it’s also attached to a blank drive in your account. You install from the CD to the drive. We have a wide variety of Linux options as well as FreeBSD and a variety of Windows trial CDs that you can install as a trial or activate with your own license keys.
  • Boot from live CD: boot off a centrally provided CD image with no permanent data storage.
  • Boot from existing drive: if you have a drive already and just want to create a server that uses it.
