Install Otomi on Vultr


Export your Vultr API Key:

export VULTR_API_KEY=<your api key>

Create a Kubernetes cluster

vultr-cli kubernetes create \
--label="otomi" \
--region="ams" \
--version="v1.27.7+1" \

Configure DNS using Cloudflare

Because DNS support for Vultr is not available in Otomi yet, we'll use Cloudflare DNS.

Creating a Cloudflare DNS zone

We highly recommend to read this tutorial if you haven't used Cloudflare before:

Create a Cloudflare account and add a website

Creating Cloudflare Credentials

Snippet from Cloudflare - Getting Started:

Cloudflare's API exposes the entire Cloudflare infrastructure via a standardized programmatic interface. Using Cloudflare's API, you can do just about anything you can do on via the customer dashboard.

The Cloudflare API is a RESTful API based on HTTPS requests and JSON responses. If you are registered with Cloudflare, you can obtain your API key from the bottom of the "My Account" page, found here: Go to My account.

When using API Token authentication, the token should be granted Zone Read, DNS Edit privileges, and access to All zones.

If you would like to further restrict the API permissions to a specific zone (or zones), you also need to use the --zone-id-filter so that the underlying API requests only access the zones that you explicitly specify, as opposed to accessing all zones.

Set the CF_API_TOKEN environment variable:

CF_API_TOKEN="Your Cloudflare API Token"

Create the values.yaml file

name: otomi
provider: vultr
hasExternalDNS: true
apiToken: $CF_API_TOKEN
proxied: false
issuer: letsencrypt
stage: production

Install Otomi using helm

Install Otomi using Helm:

helm repo add otomi
helm repo update
helm install -f values.yaml otomi otomi/otomi

Monitor the logs of the installer job:

kubectl logs jobs/otomi -n default -f

When the installer is finished, copy the url and admin-password from the console output.
