To follow this tutorial, you will need a LetsCloud account. You can create it from LetsCloud signup form, if you don’t have one yet.

After you log into LetsCloud Control Panel with your email address and password for the first time, there are two ways to create an Instance. You can either:

  • Click on the large, Create Instance button. This button is only visible when you do not have any Instances.
