Deploying the ClusterControl Marketplace App

ClusterControl Configuration Options

FieldDescription
MySQL Root PasswordMySQL Root Password. Required.
CMON User PasswordCMON user password. Required.
EmailThe email address to use for the domain’s SOA record. This is only needed when using a custom domain.
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 ClusterControl instance. The installer creates a DNS record for this domain during setup if you provide this field along with your API Token.
SSLWould you like to use a free Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate? (Uses the Linode’s default rDNS if no domain is specified).

Linode Configuration Options

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

Supported distributions: Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

FieldDescription
Select an ImageChoose an image corresponding with one of the supported distributions (listed above). 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. aaPanel can be supported on any size Linode, but we suggest you deploy your aaPanel App on a Linode plan that reflects how you plan on using it. 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 ClusterControl App will complete installation anywhere between 2-5 minutes after your Linode has finished provisioning.

From there you will see the welcome screen where you can enter the requested information to setup your ClusterControl instance:

Now that you’ve accessed your dashboard, checkout the official ClusterControl documentation to learn how to further configure your instance.
