🚀 Getting Started

Let's get started with SwiftWave! Let's first install SwiftWave on your server. Because without SwiftWave, you can't deploy your applications. 😅

📦 Pre-requisites

  1. A Virtual Server with Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora OS or their derivatives installed.
  2. Virtual Server should have at least 1GB RAM and 1vCPU.
  3. Install curl, git, unzip and tar utilities.
    # For Debian/Ubuntu based distros:
    sudo apt update -y
    sudo apt install curl git unzip tar nfs-common -y
    # For Fedora based distros:
    sudo dnf install curl git unzip tar nfs-utils
  4. Install docker (Skip this step if you already have docker installed)
    curl -fsSL -o
    sudo sh

    📌 Note: As RHEL doesn't support docker, SwiftWave doesn't support RHEL based distros.

  5. You are all set! 🎉

📥 Installation

  1. SSH into your server.

  2. Download SwiftWave binary

    • For AMD64 Architecture
     curl -L -o swiftwave.tar.gz
    • For ARM64 Architecture
     curl -L -o swiftwave.tar.gz
    • For 386 Architecture
     curl -L -o swiftwave.tar.gz
  3. Extract the gzip archive

    tar -xzf swiftwave.tar.gz
  4. Make swiftwave binary executable

    chmod +x swiftwave
  5. Move swiftwave binary to /usr/bin

    sudo mv swiftwave /usr/bin/swiftwave
  6. 🕒 Time for setup!

  7. Initialize Docker Swarm

    sudo docker swarm init
  8. Initialize SwiftWave configuration. Run following command and provide required information.

    sudo swiftwave init
  9. Prepare Environment for SwiftWave

    sudo swiftwave setup
  10. Run Local Postgres Database

    sudo swiftwave postgres start
  11. Migrate Database Tables

    sudo swiftwave db-migrate
  12. Generate SSL certificate for primary domain

    sudo swiftwave tls generate-certificate

    If you are installing in a system which doesn't have any public ip, then you can skip this step and disable tls.

    Run the following command to disable tls.

    sudo swiftwave tls disable
  13. Start HAProxy Service

    sudo swiftwave haproxy start
  14. Start UDP Proxy Service

    sudo swiftwave udpproxy start
  15. Start SwiftWave Service

    sudo swiftwave service enable
  16. Enable auto updater for SwiftWave

    sudo swiftwave auto-updater enable
  17. Enable auto renew service for service TLS certificates

    sudo swiftwave tls auto-renew enable
  18. Create a new admin user

    sudo swiftwave create-user --username <give_a_username> --password <give_a_strong_password>
  19. 🎉 Congratulations! SwiftWave is now installed on your server.

  20. You can now access SwiftWave at https://<your_domain>:3333

You have forget or missed the auto-generated domain 😅 anyhow ? This is how you can get it back.

  • Suppose your server IP is, then your domain will be
  • You have added a custom domain, then you can use that domain to access it on
  • Other way is open the config file by this command
    sudo swiftwave config -e vim
    and check the service.address_of_current_node field in the config file.
