One of the upsides with the DIY service is that you easily can modify what system resources a server has access to – sometimes even without rebooting the server.

Accessing the control panel to do the changes

To access the control panel so you can perform the modifications, follow these steps:

  1. Begin by logging on to the DIY control panel.
  2. After logging in, click Virtual Servers under Appliances in the menu to the left.
    Klicka på Virtual Servers i menyn
  3. Click on the name of the server you wish to modify (under Label).
    Välj rätt server
    You will now be able to modify the server you’ve selected.

Edit the amount of CPU cores and/or RAM

Sometimes you need additional processing power or more memory on a server, and to modify this, follow these instructions:

  1. After accessing the settings page for the server as described above, click the green Tools button towards the top right.
    Klicka på Tools-knappen
  2. In the popup menu, click Edit Virtual Server.
    Tryck på Edit Virtual Server
  3. On the page where you end up, you find sliders for RAM and CPU cores. Adjust these according to your needs and click the Save button on the lower right.

When you change the settings for number of CPU cores and amount of RAM, the pricing for the server will change. You can see the new hourly price above the Save button.

  1. After clicking the Save button, you’ll get a notice about rebooting the server. Make sure that you have no unsaved data on the server and click Continue resize to reboot the server and get access to the new system resources.

  2. Once the modification is completed, you’ll see this in the table on the bottom of the page.

Increase disk size

It is only possible to increase the size of a disk, you cannot decrease it.

Make sure that you always have a recent backup of your disk before attempting to increase its size.

  1. After accessing the settings page for the server as described above, hover your mouse cursor over Storage in the top menu and click Disks in the menu that folds down.
    Välj Storage och sedan disks
  2. Click the gear icon to the right of the disk you want to increase and click Edit in the dropdown menu.
    Klicka på kugghjulet och välj Edit
  3. In the popup that appears, adjust the slider under Size according to your needs and click the Save Disk button.

When modifying disk size, the hourly price for the server will change. You can see the new price above the Save Disk button.

  1. The server will be rebooted when you save your changes. The reboot might take longer than usual due to the disk being inflated. Make sure no data is unsaved on the server and click OK in the alert box that pops up.

  2. The control panel now schedules a shutdown of the server, an increase of the disk, and subsequently a boot of the server.

  3. Once the server has booted, you’ll have access to the increased disk space.
