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 Yes, this allows SSH to use Public Key login for the limited user. Select No if you want SSH to rely on using password login for the limited user account.

Your Linode API TokenYour Linode API Token is needed to create DNS records. If this is provided along with the subdomain and domain fields, the installation attempts to create DNS records via the Linode API. If you don’t have a token, but you want the installation to create DNS records, you must create one before continuing.
SubdomainThe subdomain you wish the installer to create a DNS record for during setup. The suggestion given is www. The subdomain should only be provided if you also provide a domain and API Token.
DomainThe domain name where you wish to host your WordPress site. The installer creates a DNS record for this domain during setup if you provide this field along with your API Token.
Do you need an MX record for this domain?Check Yes if you plan on using WordPress to send email. The installer, along with your API Token (required) sets up the necessary MX records in the DNS Manager. Select No if you do not plan on using WordPress to send email. You can add an MX record manually at a later time if you change your decision.
Do you need an SPF record for this domain?Check yes if you plan on using WordPress to send email. The installer, along with your API Token (required) sets up the necessary SPF records in the DNS Manager. Select No if you do not plan on using WordPress to send email. You can add an SPF record manually at a later time if you change your decision.
Would you like to use a free Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate?Select Yes if you would like the install to create an SSL certificate for you, or No if you do not. You cannot create secure, encrypted conferences without an SSL certificate.

Your Kepler app will complete installation anywhere between 2-5 minutes after your Linode has finished provisioning.

  1. Click on the Linodes link in the sidebar to see a list of all your Linodes.
  2. Find the Linode you just created when deploying your app and select it.
  3. Navigate to the Networking tab.
  4. Your IPv4 address is listed under the Address column in the IPv4 table.
  5. Copy and paste the IPv4 address into a browser window. You should see your WordPress site’s home page.
