Custom Server Considerations

When connecting to a custom server, Cleavr will not have connectivity that Cleavr has with integrated VPS providers. There are some additional considerations to be aware of when using the Custom Server option.

  • To add a custom server, you must have Ubuntu 20.04x64 installed on the server and you must be able to SSH into the server as root user to run a command prior to Cleavr imaging the server.
  • If you delete a custom server from Cleavr, this will not also destroy the server from the custom provider. Cleavr does not gain that level of access. If you remove a server from Cleavr you will also need to remove it from your custom server provider.
  • Some providers may block HTTPS access (Google Cloud, Lightsail) by default and you'll need to enable HTTPS for sites with SSL to render.
