Kepler Marketplace App
Kepler is a powerful drag & drop WordPress website builder with all-new website style filters that instantly change the look and feel of your website.
Deploy Kepler with Marketplace Apps
You can configure your WordPress App by providing values for the following fields:
|E-Mail Address||E-Mail address for your WordPress admin user. This is also used as the start of authority (SOA) email address for this server. This email address is added to the SOA record for the domain. This is a required field if you want the installer to create DNS records. Required.|
|Admin Username||Username for your WordPress admin user. Required.|
|Admin Password||Password for your WordPress admin user. Required.|

|The password for the limited sudo user||Set a password for the limited sudo user. The password must meet the complexity strength validation requirements for a strong password. This password can be used to perform any action on your server, similar to root, so make it long, complex, and unique.|
|The SSH Public Key that will be used to access the Linode||If you wish to access SSH via Public Key (recommended) rather than by password, enter the public key here.|
|Enable passwordless sudo access for the limited user?||If you entered an SSH Public Key above and it is for the limited user account, select |
|Disable root access over SSH?||Select |

|Would you like to use a free Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate?||Select |
After providing the app specific options, provide configurations for your Linode server:
|Select an Image||Debian 10 is currently the only image supported by WordPress Marketplace Apps, and it is pre-selected on the Linode creation page. Required.|
|Region||The region where you would like your Linode to reside. In general, it’s best to choose a location that’s closest to you. For more information on choosing a DC, review the How to Choose a Data Center guide. You can also generate MTR reports for a deeper look at the network routes between you and each of our data centers. Required.|
|Linode Plan||Your Linode’s hardware resources. WordPress is an extremely flexible CMS that can be supported on any size Linode, but we suggest you build your WordPress app on a Linode plan that reflects how much content you plan on featuring and how much traffic you expect on your site. For small websites, a 1GB Linode (Nanode) is sufficient. If you decide that you need more or fewer hardware resources after you deploy your app, you can always resize your Linode to a different plan. Required.|
|Linode Label||The name for your Linode, which must be unique between all of the Linodes on your account. This name is how you identify your server in the Cloud Manager’s Dashboard. Required.|
|Root Password||The primary administrative password for your Linode instance. This password must be provided when you log in to your Linode via SSH. The password must meet the complexity strength validation requirements for a strong password. Your root password can be used to perform any action on your server, so make it long, complex, and unique. Required.|
When you’ve provided all required Linode Options, click on the Create button. Your Kepler app will complete installation anywhere between 2-5 minutes after your Linode has finished provisioning.
Getting Started After Deployment
Access Your WordPress Site
After Kepler has finished installing, you can access your WordPress site by copying your Linode’s IPv4 address and entering it in the browser of your choice. If you’ve set up DNS during installation, you can go to your domain name in the browser. To find your Linode’s IPv4 address:
Click on the Linodes link in the sidebar to see a list of all your Linodes.
Find the Linode you just created when deploying your app and select it.
Navigate to the Networking tab.
Your IPv4 address is listed under the Address column in the IPv4 table.
Copy and paste the IPv4 address into a browser window. You should see your WordPress site’s home page.
The WordPress Marketplace App installs the following required software on your Linode:
|MySQL Server||Relational database.|
|PHP 7||WordPress is written in PHP and requires PHP to operate.|
|Apache HTTP Server||Web server used to serve the WordPress site.|
|WordPress||Content management system.|
|WP CLI||The command line interface for WordPress.|
