Getting Started with FlyWP

Welcome to FlyWP! Whether you’re launching your first website or managing multiple domains, our platform is designed to simplify the process. Follow this guide to get up and running with your servers and integrations, especially with Cloudflare.

1. Provisioning a Server

Before creating a server, you’ll need to set up a server provider. Here’s how:

a. Add a Server Provider

  1. From the FlyWP dashboard, navigate to Team Settings.
  2. Under the sidebar menu, click on Server Providers.
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions to add and authenticate your preferred server provider.

2. Configuring Cloudflare Integration

FlyWP allows you to integrate with Cloudflare for enhanced DNS management, caching, and security:

a. Connect to Cloudflare

  1. From the FlyWP dashboard, navigate to Team Settings.
  2. Click on Integrations.
  3. Next to the Cloudflare logo, click on the Configure button.
  4. Connect your Cloudflare account by entering your Cloudflare account name and email.
  5. Provide the required API Token or Global API Key (you can find this in your Cloudflare dashboard).
  6. Click Save.

Remember, integrating with Cloudflare can help in automatically updating DNS records, purging cache, and configuring firewall rules.

3. Creating a Server

With your server provider in place and Cloudflare configured, you’re all set to create a server:

a. Launch a New Server

  1. From the FlyWP dashboard, click on Servers.
  2. Select Add New Server.

Once your server is up and running, you can further configure its settings, manage databases, and more directly from the FlyWP dashboard.

4. Creating a Site

After your server is up and running, you can start creating websites.

  • Click on ‘Create New Site’ from your server’s dashboard.
  • Enter the Domain Name for your website. If you’re just testing, you can utilize the FlyWP test domain by selecting ‘Use flywp.xyz test domain’.
  • For ease of SSL and DNS management, opt for the ‘Add DNS record on Cloudflare’ option if available.
  • Select your desired PHP Version.
  • Click ‘Next’ to proceed to the installation tab.
