First steps

Interested in exozyme? First, join our Matrix space and familiarize yourself with our community. After a week of being active in our Matrix space, you'll be eligible to become an exozyme member, which gives you an account on our server.

If you would like to become a member, send an email to root@this domain name (optionally using GPG) and introduce yourself, what you plan to use your account for, your desired username, display name, and SSH public key. We'll send you a reply after your account is created.

Logging in

Now, try logging into our server using SSH. First off, passwords! The file ~/password contains your temporary password, but you should set a new password using the command passwd. To change your account details like your email address or shell, use the command moduser. We also provide remote desktop.

You can install command-line software with Nix or Distrobox. For hosting websites, check out this guide. If you want to run an extremely resource-intensive program, please let us know on Matrix first. Also, please don't torrent on exozyme.


You can find helpful guides on our wiki, or even better, please please please contribute to our wiki! If you run into bugs or have suggestions, create a new issue on our issue tracker. If you have any questions, just ask on Matrix or email us. Have fun!
