Guides - Deploying Chevereto through the Linode Marketplace
Quickly deploy a Compute Instance with many various software applications pre-installed and ready to use.
Chevereto is a self-hosted image sharing solution. It can be used to create a myriad of applications or to empower existing systems. Chevereto’s features include multi-user support, multi-server support, bulk importing, integration with social media, and more.
NoteChevereto requires a valid license to use the software. To purchase a license, visit Chevereto’s website and select a plan that fits your needs. Licenses are not available directly through Linode.
Deploying a Marketplace App
The Linode Marketplace allows you to easily deploy software on a Compute Instance using the Cloud Manager. See Get Started with Marketplace Apps for complete steps.
Log in to the Cloud Manager and select the Marketplace link from the left navigation menu. This displays the Linode Create page with the Marketplace tab pre-selected.
Under the Select App section, select the app you would like to deploy.
Complete the form by following the steps and advice within the Creating a Compute Instance guide. Depending on the Marketplace App you selected, there may be additional configuration options available. See the Configuration Options section below for compatible distributions, recommended plans, and any additional configuration options available for this Marketplace App.
Click the Create Linode button. Once the Compute Instance has been provisioned and has fully powered on, wait for the software installation to complete. If the instance is powered off or restarted before this time, the software installation will likely fail.
To verify that the app has been fully installed, see Get Started with Marketplace Apps > Verify Installation. Once installed, follow the instructions within the Getting Started After Deployment section to access the application and start using it.
NoteEstimated deployment time: Chevereto should be fully installed within 2-5 minutes after the Compute Instance has finished provisioning.
- Supported distributions: Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
- Recommended plan: All plan types and sizes can be used.
Getting Started after Deployment

You should see the Chevereto welcome message when logging into the Linode. This includes instructions for accessing the Chevereto installation script in your web browser along with the location of the credentials to the application. Replace
192.0.2.0with your Linode’s IP address.
You will then be able to proceed through the Chevereto Installer.
To utilize Chevereto, you need to obtain a license key. You can do so clicking the purchase button and entering the license key provided by Chevereto.
Next, you will be presented with a page where you can enter your cPanel credentials. Since this Marketplace App does not include a cPanel installation, you can simply select skip.
The next page allows you to input the database information for this application. It should be pre-filled with the user and password details.
You are then prompted to create the Administrator account. This will be the credentials used to access your Chevereto dashboard.
The next prompt will ask you for the email addresses that will be used for this service.
You are now ready to complete the Chevereto installation. Click the Install Chevereto button.
Now that you’ve accessed your dashboard, checkout the official Chevereto documentation to learn how to further configure your instance.
