Deploying Snapt in DigitalOcean

Snapt images can be imported and run within DigitalOcean. This involves uploading our qcow2 image, and then launching a droplet with it. After installation you manage the ADC via the normal web portal as you would expect.


Step 1: Upload the image

In your DigitalOcean control panel navigate to the Images menu, and then the Custom Image option.

Click Import via URL and enter the following URL to download the latest Snapt image: https://shop.snapt.net/download/Snapt_v15.x86_64-1.2.17.qcow2

Set the Distribution to Unknown, and let it import.

This process typically takes about 5-10 minutes, depending on load on the DigitalOcean side. Once completed you should see the image as shown below:


Step 2: Using the image

Refresh until it shows the Snapt image is uploaded. Then click the More link on the right and choose “Start a Droplet“.

You need to choose a droplet size with at least 60gb of disk space to accommodate the Snapt image size.

This will launch a new droplet with a unique IP address, make note of that.


Step 3: Login to Snapt

Now that you have a droplet and an IP address, go to your droplet IP on port 8080 in your web browser and license it.

This will follow the standard Snapt installation, so you can follow any of our guides from this point on, or schedule a demo with us.

Remember to SSH in to your droplet and ensure you change the passwords for the users snapt and root, or block SSH access.
