Installing InfluxDB on a DreamHost VPS
Get the VPS
- If you don't already have one (or you want InfluxDB to have its own) Head to [the panel] and get thyself a VPS!
- Hit the "Configure" button and on the next page, the "Public Keys" link in the "Root SSH Keys" section.
- Create (or upload) a new keypair for your VPS. Safe the private key to your local
- Head over to the [users section] and add a new, non-admin user (this example will use
newinfluxdb). We'll come back to this later.
