Quickstart on Bare Metal


For in-depth custom installation setup and cluster operations, please check out the Administrator Guide.

StackBlitz Enterprise is a Kubernetes application. You can install the software on an existing cluster or use our installer that has an embedded, production-ready Kubernetes distribution packaged with it.

Getting started on bare metal (embedded)#

If you don’t have a cluster, then our install scripts can provide one. The minimum requirements for this is 8 vCPUs, 32 GB memory, and 200 GB storage running Ubuntu LTS.

Getting started on bare metal (no existing Kubernetes cluster):

  • Make sure ports the following TCP ports are allowed through the firewall
    • 22
    • 80
    • 443
    • 8800
    • 30902
    • 8080
    • 6443
  • Run the kots intaller command: curl -sSL | sudo bash

Copy the generated password from the terminal output after installation. It's required for accessing the Admin Console and won't be shown again.

In the terminal output, look for these two lines:

Login with password (will not be shown again): xyzabc123Kotsadm:

You should be able to follow the on screen instructions to port 8800 on your server to configure your instance, add additional nodes, check for updates etc.

License registration#

After visiting the Kotsadm URL on port 8800, you'll be presented with the Admin Console.

Drag and drop your license file onto the webpage to upload it. License verification will then take place, and the StackBlitz EE images will begin installing onto your cluster.

Once this step completes, you should be presented with EE site configuration screen. It should look like this:

After filling out the configuration fields, click "Continue". Your StackBlitz EE instance is now booted and ready for DNS configuration.
