Getting Started After Deployment

Accessing the OpenLiteSpeed Rails App

  1. Once your OpenLiteSpeed Rails app has finished its installation, open a terminal and you will see a prompt as shown in the image below:

  2. You will be prompted to enter the domain you’d like to use for this instance. You will want to ensure that you have assigned the domain to your Linode. If you would like to utilize the IP address or default RDNS of the Linode, you can skip this by pressing CTRL+C in the terminal.

    For more documentation on how to assign a domain to your Linode, please review the DNS Manager guide for instructions on setting up your DNS records in the Cloud Manager, and read through DNS Records: An Introduction for general information about how DNS works.

Now that you’ve accessed your OpenLiteSpeed Rails instance, check out the official Rails OpenLiteSpeed documentation to learn how to further configure your Rails OpenLiteSpeed instance.

The OpenLiteSpeed Rails app was built for Linode by LiteSpeed Technologies. For support regarding app deployment, contact Linode Support. For OLS Rails application support, post on the OpenLiteSpeed Community Forum.
