After you connect your server in Sellcloud, you can install Grav on your cloud server using SFTP.

Grav is a flat-file content management system. Instead of using a database, it stores files that are organized in folders.

Creating an App in Sellcloud

First, click + Create App in Sellcloud, this can be done immediately after connecting a server or by going to the Apps page.

If you want to deploy Grav, you must first set up your new system user.

Name your app and select the server you want this app to be on (probably the one you just set up).

You may also select the system user you want to run this app.

Click Create App to submit the form. You'll be shown some details about the app.

Installing Grav Using SFTP

Now, it's time to install Grav on your server.

Visit and click the button labeled Grav Core + Admin Plugin. (The button's color will change from blue to purple as you hover over it.)

Now, log in to your server through Cyberduck (or your preferred SFTP client) with the username serverpilot and the password you created when you connected your server to ServerPilot. (If you followed our tutorials on uploading files and configuring Cyberduck, then your server may already be displayed under Cyberduck's History tab, and you can double-click it.)

Follow this path to your app directory, where APPNAME is the name of your app (we use grav in this tutorial):


Drag the Grav-Admin .zip file from your computer's Downloads folder and drop it into your app directory in Cyberduck.

Next, delete the public folder that currently resides in your app directory.

Then, click once on the Grav-Admin .zip file and select Expand Archive from the Cyberduck File menu.

When the file has decompressed, delete the .zip file and rename the new grav-archive folder to public.

In your browser, visit your server's IP address or your website's domain if you have already configured DNS.

That's It

After completing the form to configure your Grav admin account, click Create User to be taken to your Grav Dashboard where you can begin adding content to your site.

SellCloud will keep your server's system packages updated with security updates. ServerPilot also configured a firewall on your server.

Happy Developing!
