Getting started after deploying MicroK8s

A notification will be sent to the e-mail specified during registration that the server is ready for work after paying for the order. It will contain the IP address of the VPS, as well as the login and password for the connection. Clients of our company manage the hardware in the server`s and API control panel - Invapi.

After installation, you need to connect to the server via SSH, run the command:

microk8s dashboard-proxy
and copy the token.

Then go to the following address: https://ip-addres:10443 and enter the copied token.


For more information on the basic settings of MicroK8s, see the documentation of the developers.
