Guides - Linode StackScripts

Cloud Manager is a user and mobile-friendly interface to deploy and manage virtual machines, configure networking, control user accounts, and access and configure the full range of Linode services.

StackScripts provide Linode users with the ability to automate the deployment of custom systems on top of our default Linux distribution images. StackScripts are usually Bash scripts, stored in the Linode Cloud Manager, and can be accessed when you deploy a Linode. Linodes deployed with a StackScript run the script as part of the first boot process.

To get started using StackScripts in Cloud Manager, see the Automate Deployment with StackScripts guide.
