- Tutorial to get started
Q: Why am I being charged even after I shut down my instance?
A: You need to destroy your instance if you do not want to pay for its storage costs; shutting down the server will stop the compute costs, but not the storage costs.
Q: I don’t want to use Salamander any more
A: Click the “Delete Account” button on your dashboard
Q: My ssh key stopped working
A: When servers start Salamander replaces
~/.ssh/authorized_keys with the public key you added via the web interface. If you want to change your key visit https://salamander.ai/setup-access-keys instead of editing the file manually
Q: I get a server error when running a notebook
A: Try updating the software on your server. Click “New” then “Terminal” in jupyter, then enter this command:
conda install -y -c pytorch -c fastai fastai pytorch torchvision anaconda nbconvert
Q: I want to use my AWS credits on Salamander
A: You can redeem 75% of a promo code’s value. Please note this feature isn’t completely stable - AWS doesn’t provide an API for coupons, Salamander is controlling a web browser to add them. If interested click “Redeem AWS Coupon” inside “Preferences and Account Details”
