Solved Hetzner's Server Auction and setting up a domain
Has anyone set up Cloudron on one of these servers?
The server auction not only markets standardized server systems such as those found in our product portfolio but also customized systems that were adapted to customer requirements in the past. Therefore automatic image installers, special software images, the vKVM or other software systems are not possible. To ensure a seamless installation and functionality, the server is delivered in the rescue system.
Other server providers and even other servers provided by Hetzner provide a one-click install for cloudron, but I am wondering if
wget https://cloudron.io/cloudron-setup chmod +x ./cloudron-setup ./cloudron-setup
This is all I need to set up cloudron on a server auction machine?
I searched the forum and didnt find anything helpful - anyone have any EXP with this?

@privsec I can't comment on the auction servers but as far as the manual install goes, I can confirm those 3 commands get Cloudron installed and running. The rest of the config is all in the browser at my.cloudrondomain.com. About two months ago, I set up my second Cloudron on a fresh Ubuntu 20.04 server and the process was a lot easier than I thought it would be. My only recommendation is to set up the DNS records to point to the new server IP prior to the install.
You can post exactly which machine you are looking at, but I believe the auctions are all dedicated servers so you should be good there. You will be given SSH credentials that will let you remotely login and run those commands. The Cloudron setup should guide you from there. Good luck
@privsec I used to use one of those and the regular cloudron installation as you mentioned should work fine. Just install an Ubuntu 20 image and go from there. In my experience an important thing is the disk I/O where SSD is obviously always preferred as that makes a huge difference.

I think I did it right, but maybe not?
I set the rDNS value as well within hetzner robot settings.
Is this just going to take time to propagate? Its been about 3-4 hours since I place the a records on my dns records

@privsec Looks OK to me, except the TTL should prob have been Auto or 2 Mins or whatever low value your DNS settings offer.

@timconsidine That is what it says in the docs, however, on my first cloudron set up that works like a charm I have
So I just mirrored that

All my.example.com would do is take precedence over *.example.com if the value were different.
Also, it does no harm having it as it kinda serves as self-documenting, as in you're telling someone unfamiliar that your platform for managing the *.example.com apps is at my.example.com.
Anyway, that's a non-issue.
Issue I can think of are:
- DNS caching somewhere
- Ignore it if the Next button is working anyway.
Ok, I solved it. I had to delete all my DNS settings that previously existed and then reset them. Once I did this within milliseconds Cloudron started working.
Whew, I was sweating bullets there for a minute.
