A Web Server is a Bunnyshell component representing one or more Cloud Instances that have identical configurations. Each one of the Instances is accessible via its public IP address.
Bunnyshell uses configuration management for provisioning to ensure that all instances have identical configurations. This also means that any new Server can be reproduced from scratch without needing Golden Images.
You can create a Web Server from the upper right Create button.
The creation wizard is logically separated in the following sections:
General Web Server Settings
Web Server Name
This name will be used to identify your server in your cloud account. You can later edit the name by going to the Server page and clicking on the Edit icon.
Changing Your Web Server Name
You can change your Web Server name from the right side of the Web Server View. Click on the Edit Icon and type your new Server name.
Note that this does not make any changes on names of your Cloud Instances in your cloud account.
Locations are geographic regions where a cloud's datacenter is located. These are cloud specific. Usually choosing the nearest location to your end users is the safest choice.
Also, when creating web servers and database instances, choose them in the same location to avoid latency.
For Single Infrastructure type you will always have one Cloud Instance. For Load Balanced and Cluster types, you will have up to 50 instances (Server Group). You may encounter cloud account limits that may prevent you from creating a Web Server Group or from scaling the Web Server. Check the following:
