Vultr's One-Click Drupal application is a quick way to launch your website. Select a server location, choose your size, and click Deploy Now. Your server will be ready to configure in about a minute.
This step is optional, but recommended. Most Drupal administrators will use a domain name and valid SSL certificate for their site. If you plan to use a commercial SSL certificate, see the Commercial SSL section.
If you skip this step:
To install a free Let's Encrypt SSL certificate:
Install the certificate with certbot. Replace the domain name and email with your values.
# certbot --nginx --redirect --agree-tos --no-eff-email -d oneclick.example.com -m email@example.com
Certbot should report success when finished.
Enter the Login user credentials in the security pop-up.
Choose your language, then click Save and continue.
Your site is installed. To log in, navigate to https://oneclick.example.com/user/login
For security, you should configure the trustedhostpatterns setting in /var/www/html/sites/default/default.settings.php after installation. See Trusted Host settings at drupal.org.
One-Click Drupal supports uploaded themes and modules up to 2GB each. These can be configured in the "Modules" and "Appearance" sections, after logging into Drupal as an administrator user.
A MySQL database is running on your VPS for Drupal. If you need to access the database directly:
Log into MySQL.
# mysql -u root
The MySQL root password is saved in
If you need to reset Nginx to default:
Run the fix-vhost.sh script.
You can use a Commercial SSL certificate instead of the free Let's Encrypt certificate.
Reboot the server.
Certbot makes changes to the Nginx configuration. If you used certbot to obtain a Let's Encrypt certificate, return the Nginx configuration files to default before proceeding.
Back up your existing Nginx configuration files
# cp -r /etc/nginx/ /root/nginx
Revoke your certbot certificate.
# certbot delete
Restore the default Nginx configuration.
Disabling HTTPS security is possible, but not recommended.
SSH to the server as root.
Move drupal_https.conf out of the Nginx configuration folder and reboot the server.
# mv /etc/nginx/conf.d/drupal_https.conf /root/ # reboot
One-Click apps are updated regularly without notice. When launching a One-Click app, you'll receive our latest version. We do not update deployed instances, and you are responsible for keeping the instance up-to-date. If you design an infrastructure based on One-Click apps and need to ensure the same app version in the future, take a snapshot of the initial deployment and create new instances from the snapshot.
