You can log in to the CVM Console to view CVMs that are currently in use.
For more information, see Shutdown Instances.
For more information, see Restarting Instances.
For more information, see Terminating Instances.
After you create a CVM instance, its username and password will be delivered to your account through the Message Center. The admin account of a Linux instance is
root by default.
You can run the
df -h command to query the total and used disk capacities and run the
fdisk -l command to view the disk information. For information about how to partition and format the disks of Linux instances, see Initializing Cloud Disks (Smaller than 2TB) and Initializing Cloud Disks (Larger than 2TB).
If the file or directory permissions are incorrectly configured on the Web server, a 403 error will occur when you access a website hosted on the instance. Therefore, before you adjust a file or directory, you must confirm the identity under which the file or directory process is running.
grepcommands to query the identities under which the file or directory process is running.
ls –lcommand to query the owners and owner groups of files and directories.
chowncommand to modify the permissions. For example, you can run the
chown -R www.www /tencentcloud/www/user/command to change the owners and owner groups of all files and directories under the
/tencentcloud/www/userdirectory to account “www”.
Yes, provided that you've built a visual desktop on the Linux instance. For more information, see Building a Visual Ubuntu Desktop.
Tencent Cloud CVMs do not provide multimedia servers and sound and video card components by default. Therefore, sound and video cards cannot be added to CVM instances.
No. If you want higher flexibility and cost-efficiency, we recommend that you purchase pay-as-you-go instances.
The IP address of a CVM instance is located in the same region where you purchased the CVM instance.
No. To use database services, you can:
Yes. You can install database software and configure a database environment on a CVM instance as needed. You can also purchase TencentDB for MySQL separately.
Yes. Before you install an Oracle database, we recommend you perform a performance stress test on the target CVM instance to ensure that the instance can satisfy the read/write requirements of the database.
You can forcibly stop a CVM instance when normal shutdown fails. Please note that forced shutdown is equivalent to a power outage and can result in the loss of unsaved data.
