Seems like a great idea! Too bad about the Documentation

Too bad you can't get logged into the Server after deploying it. They never mention the #$%$#@# Username. Nice setup, I bet it's nice.

Too bad the person writing the Documentation made a Huge Assumption about the username on the Linux install. Like I'm clairvoyant or something. Super frustrating. I tried administrator, admin, Administrator, root.

On lightsail there is some procedure that you have to follow to initialize the server. The website on port 80 gives instructions if I remember correctly

Hello - this is Lukas from Plesk. Unfortunately, this is a default behavior of Amazon AWS that you have to do a one-time connection via SHELL to generate a login into Plesk. As part of that procedure, it's the same for all Linux distributions used at AWS. We also have this mentioned in our documentation for running Plesk on AWS: -> There you can find the following note: Note: To log in via SSH, use the 'ubuntu' user name for Ubuntu 16.04 and 'centos' for CentOS 7. I hope this clarifies it and we are happy to receive your feedback either over our support or otherwise also in our facebook group:
