Use a different provider. I suggest Vultr, Linode, or Digital Ocean.


The $10 instance is what you want to use. I've no trouble installing and testing it on these 3 providers.

@treichhart  Hello Tim. Sudo should not be necessary as long as you have the root access. Please send me the full outcome of your installation script so I can help you more. Please, send it to the email radek.skrivan(at), and include your forum name and URL of this thread in the message. In case the files are too big, please use a file sharing service such as Google Drive.
