To install the Bitpoke App for WordPress, press on CONFIGURE and enter the following:

  • Cluster: the cluster you’ve created when going through the App Prerequisites will automatically appear here; you also have the possibility to quickly spin a new cluster directly from here, by presing Create a new cluster.

    NOTE

    If you’ve created a cluster and it doesn’t appear here, most likely you’ve created one with lower resources then our recommended ones, see App Prerequisites .

    NOTE

    Make sure that the cluster you want to install the App on isn’t scaled to 0. To check this, go to your cluster on Google Cloud and check the number of nodes.

  • Namespace: you can leave the default one

  • App-instance-name: the name of your App install

  • Bitpoke App Service Account: Create a new service account

  • Bitpoke App Domain: The domain you chose for the Bitpoke App, e.g. dash.myagency.com

  • IP Address: Enter your reserved IP address here. If left empty a temporary IP address will be appointed.

    NOTE

    For a production environment it is recommended to reserve a static IP .

You also have to approve:

  • I acknowledge that Workload identity must be enabled for the Bitpoke App to function properly
  • I acknowledge that Application Manager addon must be enabled for the Bitpoke App to function properly

Install the App

If you’ve carefully followed all the steps in Bitpoke App Prerequisites just check it and press Deploy.

That’s it, you’ve successfully deployed the Bitpoke App. All that’s left to do now is set the DNS records at your DNS provider.

For example, if you’ve chosen the domain dash.myagency.com for your Bitpoke App domain, you’ll need to add an A record for the subdomain dash and the Ingress IP Address you see in your Bitpoke App. Here is an example on Cloudflare:

Set up the DNS record for your Bitpoke App

To connect to the Dashboard for the first time, go back to the Bitpoke App, click on preview secret data and copy the Install link in your browser. Connect to the App for the first time

Keep in mind that the installation link regenerates every 2 hours and you’ll have to go back to the Bitpoke App on GCP and copy the fresh install link to access the App again.

The install link will get you to the Dashboard configuration wizard, see more on Configure App .
