Linode Options

After providing the App-specific options, provide configurations for your Linode server:

ConfigurationDescription
Select an ImageUbuntu 20.04 LTS is currently the only image supported by the Ant Media Server Marketplace App, and it is pre-selected on the Linode creation page. Required.
RegionThe 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 PlanYour Linode’s hardware resources. Ant Media Server can be supported on any size Linode, but we suggest you deploy your Ant Media Server App on a Linode 8GB plan. 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 LabelThe 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 Dashboard. Required.
Root PasswordThe 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.

After providing all required Linode Options, click on the Create button. Your Ant Media Server App will complete installation anywhere between 2-5 minutes after your Linode has finished provisioning.

Getting Started after Deployment

Access your Ant Media Server App

After Ant Media Server has finished installing, you can access your server with your Linode’s IPv4 address. Copy your Linode’s IPv4 address from the Linode Cloud Manager, and then connect to the server from your browser using your Linode’s IPv4 address and port 5080(for example 192.0.2.0:5080).
