How to setup a Redmine server with SkySilk VPS in 10 Steps

If you want to restart the install process on your VM you can use the following command; 'turnkey-init'.

  1. Deploy a SkySilk Redmine VPS Template.

  2. Login to your VPS. SSH into your VPS using root@ipaddress and the password you set in the SkySilk dashboard.

    ssh [user]@[ip address] 

    where [user] is your username, typically root, and [ip address] is the IP address of the virtual machine.

    ssh root@204.44.81.XX
