01) Initial launch of Cosmos Server

Finding your Public IPv4

  1. We should first obtain your Public IPv4 address of your server. You can accomplish this by issuing the following command:

curl -4 icanhazip.com
  1. This will output your Public IPv4, which we will need when we first set up Cosmos Server.

Checking if Cosmos Server is running

  1. In the previous installation step, we ran the docker run command, which automatically started Cosmos Server.

  2. It should therefore already be running. You can confirm this by running:

docker ps -a
  1. The output should show Cosmos Server running:

CONTAINER ID   IMAGE                          COMMAND                  CREATED         STATUS         PORTS     NAMES
cb1e2031f830   azukaar/cosmos-server:latest   "sh -c './$(cat /bin…"   2 minutes ago   Up 2 minutes             cosmos-server
  1. From a console point of view, it should simply look like this:

Heading into Cosmos

  1. Enter your public IPv4 + port "80" into your browser to access your Cosmos instance. In my case, it looks like this:
  1. When you visit your URL, it should look like this:

  1. Yay! Now we're ready to continue!

On to the next step!
