How to Launch a New Application on a New Server

Here are a few simple steps to launch a new application on a new server.

Step #1

Scenario #1 (If launching the first server)

  • Log in to the Cloudways Platform with your credentials and then navigate to the Servers tab from the top menu bar.

  • If you have not launched any server yet, you will see a screen like the image shown below, so you may click on the Launch button to launch your first server.

Scenario #2 (If not launching the first server)

  • If you already have an existing server(s) running, and you want to launch another server on which you want to deploy a new application, log in to the Cloudways Platform with your credentials and then navigate to the Servers tab from the top menu bar.

  • Now, you will see a screen as an image, as shown below, so click Add Server in the top right corner.
