Follow up: „How to setup a CentOS instance and connect via ssh“
Login to the „Oracle Cloud“ via browser
go to -> Compute -> Instance
create a new instance
But before going on setup a ssh-key
ssh-keygen -t rsa -N "" -b 2048 -C "oracloud" -f /Users/user/.ssh
Now you are ready to start the setup and therefore upload the public key before
starting the installation. (id_rsa.pub) The public key upload is mandatory!
After a few minutes the setup is done. restart the instance
Check the instance
For the connect via ssh use the Linux User „opc“ in the Oracle Cloud and your „public-IP address“
The „opc“ user has no Login password!
When the instance started and a „Login screen“ came up with
„user“ and „password“ you forget to upload the public-key during setup
Here the standard Login after correct setup
ssh firstname.lastname@example.org [opc@pg11 ~]$
For root Login enter
You need no root password!
That’s it you are logged in start with your work and have fun
The Oracle Cloud documentation for this setup is not very handy
I hope that these few lines help you to get a new machine in the Oracle Cloud fast up and running
forever free :-)
