Bring Your Own Server (Custom Server)

Pre-requisites For WPCloudDeploy


Billed once per year until cancelled

The Bring Your Own Server (aka Custom Server) add-on lets you connect any server that meet our simple requirements to the WPCD dashboard.

This allows you to use servers on cloud services where we do not have a direct api connection.  It also allows you to use bare-metal servers.

Server Requirements

Your custom server must meet the following requirements:

  • Have a basic installation of Ubuntu 20.04 LTS or 22.04 LTS (no other software such as nginx, php etc. should be installed.)
  • The “root” user must have an SSH key-pair installed and you should be in possession of the related private key.
  • The server must be publicly accessible across the internet and you must know its public IP.
  • It must have its SSH port open (port 22)
  • HTTP and HTTPS ports (80 and 443 respectively) must be opened as well.


Add-on Prerequisites

WPCloudDeploy 5.3.0 or later is required to use this add-on.
