External Beta Intro

External Beta is your development environment. It is a VPS based on Ubuntu. Each time when you would like to start working on your site you need to connect to it via SSH and the command is:


We are using two step authentication. You will be requested to enter the verification code and the password each time you would like to connect. For the first time there will be provided disposal verification codes and the password by our admins. Remember the password and set up the Google Authenticator app for verification codes for next times.

Each external developer has his own External Beta with corresponding URL which you can check it in the browser. Pattern for the URL is normally:

Both protocols are available: HTTP or HTTPS. Our admins can set you whichever suit you best. I suggest you to use the one which you are using on your roar site as well.

Each URL is also behind basic access authentication. If you want to get rid of it, please contact our admins.

On your external beta everything is already set up for your work:

  • Local GIT repo (remote is on BitBucket).
  • Frontend code which is used on your roar site.
  • Roar commands (deploy, ...).
