This article contains information about the LEMP application that can be deployed on Vultr.
The LEMP application is available for CentOS 6 x64, CentOS 7 x64, and Ubuntu Server LTS x64.
After deploying a LEMP application VPS, you can log into the system with an SSH client using the root login found on your Vultr control panel.
You can access your LEMP server by navigating to
http://[SERVER_IP]/ in your web-browser. Substitute the
[SERVER_IP] with the IP address of your VPS. The server is also accessible with
https://, although the certificate is self-signed, which means that your browser will display a certificate warning.
The LEMP document root is located at
/usr/share/nginx/html/. You can create
.html files in that directory. For example, uploading a PHP file to
/usr/share/nginx/html/cupcake.php would be accessible in your web browser at
There is a MySQL database server running on the VPS. You can connect to the database by executing the following:
mysql -u root
The MySQL root password is saved on the VPS in
Vultr applications use modern releases of software packages. Applications are configured to be deployed with specific versions of software. Over time, the Vultr team will update the application offerings to include newer operating systems, package versions, etc. This document only provides up-to-date information about the latest version of this application. Vultr applications are updated without notice. If you plan to build a project or infrastructure based on our application templates, we recommend taking a snapshot of the application used in your initial deployment.
