Microsoft Azure Installation Notes

  1. If you don't already have one generate an SSH key pair.

  2. Go to the Dokku on Azure deployment page and click Deploy to Azure.

  3. You'll be prompted to enter a few parameters, including a unique storage account name and a unique name for the subdomain used for your public IP address. For the sshKeyData parameter, copy and paste the contents of the public key file you just created. After a few minutes the Dokku instance will be deployed.

  4. Once the installation is complete, you should configure an ssh key and set your global domain.

    # usually your key is already available under the current user's `~/.ssh/authorized_keys` file
    cat ~/.ssh/authorized_keys | dokku ssh-keys:add admin
    # you can use any domain you already have access to
    # this domain should have an A record or CNAME pointing at your server's IP
    dokku domains:set-global
    # you can also use the ip of your server
    dokku domains:set-global
    # finally, you can use to get subdomain support
    # as you would with a regular domain name
    # this would be done by appending `` to your ip address
    dokku domains:set-global

See the user management and domains documentation for more information.
