Instructions

  1. Start by creating a brand new droplet on DigitalOcean. Create a droplet with 4GB of RAM. Make sure you select Ubuntu 18.09 (LTS).
  2. SSH into the droplet to install Docker
  3. Install rancher
curl https://releases.rancher.com/install-docker/18.09.sh | sh

docker run -d --restart=unless-stopped \
              -p 80:80 -p 443:443 rancher/rancher:stable \
