Digital Oceon is the hot cloud hosting provider that makes setting up a cloud box a breeze. Well it gets even easier when you throw HiveMind into the mix. HiveMind gives you a one-box hassle-free web app solution. Assuming you are using a Ubuntu droplet (why would you be using anything else?:)), on the command line do the following: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-installer cd /home wget https://s3.amazonaws.com/crudzilla/hivemind.zip sudo apt-get install unzip unzip hivemind.zip cd hivemind/bin ./jetty.sh start goto: http://your-digitalocean-ipaddress:7000 login with: developer/developer You now have a ready to use web app platform that supports a bunch of languages, you can create new web apps as you need to. Once you are logged in, you can change the login by going to System menu on the upper right and selecting Manage Users .
