Rapid Server Setup allows you to magically connect SimpleBackups to newly provisioned servers on AWS EC2, Amazon Lightsail, DigitalOcean, Laravel Forge, ... you name it.

It saves you two steps in the backup process for new/existing servers:

  1. Adding your server manually to SimpleBackups
  2. Running the connection script on your server

Some of its features:

  • It does not require sudo or root access
  • Figures out the username, IP address and home directory of your server automatically

Some of the ideas of how it can be useful:

  • Connect existing servers in bulk to SimpleBackups without having to add every server manually and running the connection script
  • Use as a Laravel Forge recipe to add newly created servers to SimpleBackups

Here are some screenshots for demonstration in one of the use cases with Forge:
