Amazon AWS Lightsail

To deploy to the Amazon AWS Lightsail provider, all you need is an AWS_ACCESS_KEY and AWS_SECRET_KEY with proper permissions. After generating above said keys, you just need to run our deployer container which will walk you through all steps required.

Obtaining access token

The first step will be acquiring the AWS_ACCESS_KEY and AWS_SECRET_KEY pairs as follows:

  1. Log in to the Amazon AWS Console
  2. Navigate to the IAM Security Credentials section
  3. Click on the "Access keys (access key ID and secret access key)" accordion

Add a new access key

Click the "Create New Access Key" button seen on the screenshot below:

Afterwards you will be presented with a pop-up like this one:

Now copy both the "Access Key ID" and "Secret Access Key" which is shown in the pop-up modal window to a text file.

Running the deployer

All it takes is a simple docker run ! It will drop you in an interactive session, where you will only need to enter the keys you obtained in the previous step. The deployer script will select the proper hardware for you, install all required dependencies and scaffold a fully featured private network on your server.

Command to run:

docker run --rm -it qanplatform/deploy:v1-1-1

Put in your access token when asked, sit back, have a coffee and ready you go in 10 minutes!
