Get Started with PrestaShop

  • Please allow at least 5 MINUTES for your Bitnami PrestaShop App to finish installing before attempting to access it!
    • If you are unable to access your PrestaShop site, please try the following:
      • Wait a few more minutes for install to finish up
      • Try using http:// instead of https://
  • Your PrestaShop site is available at: http://use.your.ip/
  • Your PrestaShop admin panel is available at: http://use.your.ip/administration/

Use the View Console icon at the top of this page to see your administrator credentials. See our FAQ for more information about the Vultr Web Console.

You'll see two sets of credentials on that screen.

  • Use the account and your unique password in the Web Console to log in to your admin panel.
  • Use the bitnami account with the password bitnami to log in to the server via the web console. You'll be prompted to change you password the first time you log in.

Enable SSH

SSH is disabled by default on this application. To enable SSH:

  1. Log in to the Web Console as bitnami. If this is your first login, the password is bitnami.
  2. If you prefer the nano text editor over vim, install nano.

    $ sudo apt install nano  

    Otherwise, substitute vim in the command below.

  3. Edit the SSH configuration file.

    $ sudo nano /etc/ssh/sshd_config  
  4. Find the #PasswordAuthentication yes line and remove the comment character. When finished, it should look like this:

    PasswordAuthentication yes  
  5. Save and exit the file.

  6. Enable the SSH service.

    $ sudo rm -f /etc/ssh/sshd_not_to_be_run  
    $ sudo systemctl enable --now ssh  

You can now connect to the server with SSH. Use your bitnami account and password.

Generate an SSL Certificate

First point the IP of the server to a domain, then using either the Vultr Web Console or ssh, login and run the following command:

   `$ sudo /opt/bitnami/bncert-tool`
