Managing A Cloud Server

In this article, we'll cover the basics for getting started with the ServerMania Cloud.

Managing A Cloud Server

Once the Cloud Server has been created, it will be listed under Virtual Servers on the left side of the page.

The top of the page for the server contains a menu which allows you to navigate between various server management activities.

Overview

The Overview tab allows you to start, stop, and reboot the server, as well as review the server statistics and activity logs. 

Networking

The networking page allows you to manage network interfaces, IP addresses, and firewall rules.

Viewing Bandwidth Usage

Click on the Interface Usage button to view the current bandwidth usage of the server:

Storage

On the storage page, you can manage disks (migrate between servers, resize, etc.) or add new storage to a virtual server.

Backups

On the backups page, you can create a backup of a virtual server or restore a server from a backup. 

Console

Clicking on the console tab will open up the IPMI console for the virtual server:

Scaling Up A Server

Cloud Servers can be upgraded and scaled up at any time if you need more server resources. To modify an existing server, click on Overview > Tools > Edit Virtual Server and adjust the server resources as needed.

On this page, you can select a new plan and click Save

Once the new plan is saved, you can go to the Disks menu and re-size or create a new disk to be mounted to the server.

Note: Once you have utilized any new storage on the server, it is not possible to scale down to a smaller plan. However, if you change the plan and don't modify the storage settings, you can move down to a smaller plan.

Destroying A Server

To delete a server, click Overview > Tools > Delete Server.
