Below installation steps assume that you’ve already spun up a new Virtual Machine on your favorite KVM cloud network. Your VPS must have Ubuntu 18.04 LTS installed with 2GB+ RAM and at least 1 CPU core (2 CPU cores is better) before continuing below:

mkdir /var/www/ && nano /var/www/ss-config

configure your ss-config file as desired using this boilerplate

cd /var/www/ && wget -O ss && bash ss

Note: Ensure that CloudFlare is activated on your domain, preferably before starting SlickStack installation, otherwise OpenSSL will not be “signed” properly by CloudFlare and your site will have SSL “errors” when loaded in your browser… If your site is busy and you don’t want down time, setup SlickStack on a subdomain first, migrate all files and database, make sure CloudFlare is activated on the entire domain, and then switch the ss-config to your real domain and run ss-install once again and update your DNS (A) records in CloudFlare.
