Creating New Self Hosted Servers/Hybrid Cloud

Creating new Self Hosted Server/Hybrid Servers are similar to creating new Frappe Cloud Servers. If you want to enable this feature in your account, please raise a support ticket.

The flow is a little bit different compared to Frappe Cloud Servers and requires more details on the Servers


  1. The server must have a Public IP and a Private IP and should be accessible via Public IP

  2. The server must have a subdomain of the domain pointed to the IP. An A record in the DNS is how you can do that, read more about it here

  3. The server must be running Ubuntu 20

  4. No other user other than root should be present. If any other user is present, make sure to change the UID and GID of that user from 1000 to 1001 or any other ID. You can read how to do it here

  5. Open the 80 and 443 ports

  6. The SSH user should be root and the SSH Port should be 22

The Minimum server specifications to run everything smoothly is 4GB RAM, 50GB Storage and 2vCPU. We suggest you to get servers with the same specifications from


From the Servers tab on the dashboard, click on New.

A dropdown with Frappe Cloud Server and Self Hosted Server as options will come up, select the Self Hosted Server option.

New Hybrid Cloud

Select the Plan of the Hybrid Server Setup. A single plan is available for Hybrid Server. If you have more complex setups/requirements please raise a support ticket.

New Hybrid Cloud Plan

Once you select the plan, Please enter the Public and Private IP of the server. Once this is done, we will do a DNS verification to verify if the domain is pointed to the IP

New Hybrid Cloud IP Page

After the DNS verification is complete, we will be doing an access verification to the Server, this requires you to add the SSH Public specified in the page to the ~/.ssh/authorized_keys file. You can read on how to do this here

New Hybrisd SSH Verify

Once the verification is complete, we will proceed onto adding an Nginx config for generating SSL certificate for the domain.

New Hybrid Nginx Setup

After the verifications are complete, you can go ahead to start the Server Setup.

New Hybrid Cloud Verify Complete

Once the Setup Server button is clicked, you'll be taken to a page which will initially show a "Pending" state but you can reload it after a minute and the status will be changed to "Installing"

New Hybrid Cloud Installing

Here we will be running two Ansible Playbooks for setting up the Database and for Setting up the Server. Once the Ansible Playbooks are complete, the Status will be changed to Active

New Hybrid Server Active

Now you will be able to create new benches and new sites with this Server. You can read more about the creating new benches with the server here.

New Sites from Hybrid Servers will be created in the Bangalore region.
