Installing one of our one-click apps is an easy and quick process. The installation wizard guides you through the process and makes it easy to get up and running in no time. Most installations that we've completed took about 5 minutes and a few simple clicks.
When choosing one of our One-Click apps, your VPS will not have any operating system installed on it, and the ISO of the app you selected will be mounted as a virtual disk.
If you need support with any part of the installation, please submit a support ticket. We'll be happy to help!
The order process
The apps can't be installed on the Bronze VPS plan. The minimum required plan for our one-click apps is the Silver plan.
When placing an order for a one-click app VPS, you will be able to choose the operating system and the one-click app of your choice.
Under "Operating System" you should select the "None, I'll install a one-click app" option and under "One-Click App", select your preferred one-click app.
The installation wizard
When your VPS is ready for use, you will receive a welcome email that has your server's IP address and more important information.
1. Check that your VPS is running
Once you get the welcome email, you should navigate to the My Services page and click the line that represents your new VPS.
Then, scroll down and make sure that your VPS status is set to "Running". If it's not running, press the "Boot" button under "Control Panel".
2. Open the NoVNC Console
Once your VPS is running, scroll down to the part that says "Control Panel" and press the "NoVNC" button. This will open up the console.
3. Select partitioning method
Select the default "Guided" partitioning method, which figures out how to partition the virtual hard disk automatically. If unsure, just confirm the defaults.
4. Confirm the changes to disks and configuring LVM
When prompted to write the partition tables to disk and configure LVM, select Yes.
5. Continue installation with default options
Depending on the app you selected, you may see a few more screens asking you to press "OK" or "Yes". Simply confirm the defaults and continue.
6. Confirm the re-partitioning of the virtual hard disk
7. Install GRUB boot loader to the master boot record
If prompted to a screen asking you to install GRUB boot loader to the master boot record, select Yes.
8. Allow the wizard to finish the installation but do not reboot yet
The installer will now quickly install the appliance to the virtual hard disk. Usually, this takes about a minute. When the installation is complete, you will be prompted to reboot the VPS, do not click "Yes" just yet.
9. Remove the ISO to allow the server to boot from the virtual hard disk
If we reboot the server with the ISO still mounted, the ISO will be booted instead of the application we just installed. Due to that fact, we will need to remove the ISO.
In order to remove the ISO, go back to the Maple-Hosting client area, to the same section where you checked that your VPS was running (step 1). Then, press the edit button for the "CD/DVD Disc Image File" option:
Make sure that the selected IMAGE FILE is "None" and press "Save Changes".
10. Reboot the VPS and complete the configuration
Go back to the NoVNC Console and allow the installer to reboot the VPS.
The first time the system boots, you'll be taken to various configuration screens (e.g., set passwords, install latest security updates). After that, the first boot will finish and you'll reach the Configuration Console's Usage screen.
You're all set! You can now use a browser to log into your newly installed TurnKey application and its control panels.
Enjoy your new application and thank you for choosing Maple-Hosting!
