The server manages users, organizations, collaborations, tasks and results. In this section we will explain how to configure and manage a server.
It is assumed that you successfully installed vantage6-server. To verify this, you can run the command vserver --help . If that prints a list of commands, your installation is successful. Also, make sure that Docker is running.

To create a new server, run the command below. A menu will be started that allows you to set up a server configuration file. For more details, check out the Configure page.
vserver new
To run a server, execute the command below. The --attach flag will cause log output to be printed to the console.
vserver start --name <your_server> --attach
When the server is run for the first time an user is created:
  • username: root
  • password: root
It is recommended to change this password immediately.
Finally, a server can be stopped again with:
vserver stop --name <your_server>

The following commands are available in your environment. To see all the options that are available per command use the --help flag, e.g. vserver start --help.
