RunCloud Hosting Integration

InstaWP allows you to add a RunCloud hosting integration which is an advanced control panel that enables you to manage WordPress sites on the RunCloud server that you created or migrated from your InstaWP platform.

In this documentation, we will explore the steps to:

Add RunCloud Integration
Create a New Site
Migrate Staging Site
Create a New WaaS

Let’s get started 🚀

Add RunCloud Integration



Step 1: Navigate to the hosting page, and click on the Connect Hosting button.



A new modal window will appear, providing a list of available hosting providers. For more information, you can refer to the Connect Hosting document.



Step 2: Select RunCloud as the hosting provider.



A new window will appear, asking you to fill out the connection form by entering a new Alias name, API and Secret key of your RunCloud account.

Step 3: After entering the values in the connection form, click the Test button to test whether the connection is correct or not.



Step 4: After the connection test successfully, click on the Connect button.



Then, you will see a success message on your screen.



Create a New Site



Now that the RunCloud is connected to your InstaWP account, you can create a new site (i.e. tenant) on the RunCloud server. For that, you can follow the below steps:

Step 1: Click on the New Site button from the top right corner of the interface.



Step 2: A new dialog will appear, select Choose from supported providers and click on the Next Step button.



A website setting dialog will appear, asking you to enter your domain name as your site name.



Step 3: Click on the Next Step button.



A modal window for Plugins & Themes will appear, allowing you to select themes and plugins from the categories.
Step 4: After selecting plugins & themes according to your preferences, click the Go Live button.



Step 5: Click on Continue button.



Then, you will see the message “Your new WordPress website is now live!” alongside with website URL and your login credentials.



Migrate Staging Site



InstaWP allows you to migrate your staging site to the RunCloud server. It involves copying all files and databases related to the website and then updating settings for the site to work on its new server. For that, you can follow the below steps:

Step 1: Navigate to your dashboard and click on the Go Live icon corresponding to the WP site you want to migrate.



Step 2: A new dialog will appear, select Choose from supported providers and click on the Next Step button.



Step 3: Select RunCloud as your hosting provider and its server.



Step 4: Enter your domain name as your site name, click on the Next Step button.



Step 5: Select plugins & themes according to your preferences and click the Go Live button.



Step 6: Click on Continue button.



This completes the migration of your chosen site to your Runcloud server. Here, you can see your migrated site.



Create a New WaaS



InstaWP also allows you to host your WaaS sites on the RunCloud server.

Note: The user needs to create a shared template and monetize it. Then, this shared template will be used as WaaS (Website as a Service). Afterwards, you can follow the below steps:

Step 1: Navigate to the WaaS setting dialog, where you can enter the WaaS name and select your monetized template (single or multiple) that will be displayed publicly.



Step 2: From the “Hosting Settings” section, select RunCloud as the server alias.



Step 3: Then add some features according to your preference, click on the Next button, brand your WaaS and review it. For more information, you can refer to the Create WaaS document.



Step 4: Review the changes, and click on the Finish button.



Then, you will see a success message on your screen.
