Link Engine and Install a WordPress Server

In this guide we will link an existing Stabile installation, what we call an “engine”, to the Stabile Registry at stabile.io. Linking an engine gives you access to more standard stacks, like a WordPress stack, and allows you to sync user accounts between multiple engines, i.e. one for development and one for testing. It also gives your engine access to the DNS services the registry provides.

Once the engine is linked and stacks are downloaded, we will install a WordPress server as an example of how Stabile stacks work.

Stabile is currently in public beta. To limit fradulent signups, we currently only accept signups and linking of engines from Scandinavia or by explicit invite. If you would like an invite, drop us a note, and we will send you a promocode.

Objectives

  • Link an engine to the Stabile Registry and download stacks

Link your engine

  2. Now go to your Stabile web client (https://your-engines-name/stabile)
  3. If you are currently logged into your Stabile installation with the same username (i.e. your email address) you just signed up with at stabile.io, skip to step 8. Otherwise Go to the “Users” tab in the web.
  4. Click on “New user” and create a user with the username you signed up with at stabile.io.
  5. Now click on the username you are currently logged in with and add your stabile.io username to the field “Other accounts”. Fill out the field “Privileges to other accounts” with an “a”. Click “Save”
  6. Reload the web client, i.e. reload the current web page.
