How to get an API Token from Digital Ocean

with 2 comments

An authorization token is required when connecting to Digital Ocean through a third-party app.  The token is used in the header tag of the connection to verify that you’ve authorized the connection.

To get the API token, log into the control panel through the log-in page:  https://cloud.digitalocean.com/login

Then click on the Apps & API (1) link and go to the Generate new token (2) button.

 

After clicking on the Apps & API link, you’ll get to New Personal Access Token page.  First enter a token name (3) – I have TestToken in the example below.  Then select the access level (4), read is recommended unless you want the app you are authorizing to edit droplets and settings in your account.  Finally, click on Generate Token (5) to generate your token.

Clicking Generate Token will take you back to the Personal Access tokens page.  At this point you’ll be presentated with the token.  Copy this token to a safe place.  You will only see it once.  Use the delete button to delete the token.

libapache2 mod_mono install freezing during install on Ubuntu at Digital Ocean

with one comment

I had a problem with my libapache2-mod-mono install freezing during install when trying to run ASP.NET applications on Ubuntu.

The workaround for this is to open another session and restart/reload apache:

root@xyzio:/home/xyzio# service apache2 reload
root@xyzio:/home/xyzio# service apache2 restart

This is what I would see and the session would freeze at the [OK]:

apt-get install libapache2-mod-mono

Setting up libapache2-mod-mono (2.11+git20130708.6b73e85-2) ...
Using mono-apache-server4...
apache2_invoke: Enable module mod_mono
* Restarting web server apache2 [ OK ]
apache2_invoke: Enable module mod_mono_auto
* Restarting web server apache2 [Sun Dec 08 23:03:01.698809 2013]
[so:warn] [pid 4455] AH01574: module mono_module is already loaded, skipping
[ OK ]
