SLICE Selection

In this tutorial we will be using the SLICE 512 from BuyVM which includes 1 Core @ 3.50+ GHz (Fair Share CPU Usage Applies), 512 MB of Memory, 10 GB of SSD Storage and Unmetered Bandwidth.

Note: SLICE 4096 ($15) and up include dedicated CPU Usage.

I recommend signing up for one of their new AMD Ryzen VPS in the Las Vegas Data Center to pop up again because they are higher performing, brand new and at no additional cost. They also offer cloud servers in New York and Luxembourg but with older Intel hardware.

I have used more memory before for hosting TeslaMate but found 512MB has been plenty adequate for running TeslaMate for one Model 3 and access for myself only.

Setup Self-Hosted TeslaMate for $2 per Month in a BuyVM Slice 7

Stallion is the web interface that BuyVM developed for you to load your slice with an operating system, view status and manage all other tasks on your virtual server. You will find a link to Stallion at the top of the page when you login to the frantech client portal.

We will need to setup Docker manually because there isn’t a pre-setup Docker but it’s really no trouble at all to setup.

Select Image and Power On VM

Select ‘Reinstall’ from the tab menus. Now, click on ‘Redhat Based (7)’ from the list on the left. Click on ‘Reinstall’ next to ‘CentOS 7.0 64bit’ to bring up the install prompt. You will be asked to enter a password. This is for your root (or administration) password for your virtual server. Make sure to write this down in a safe place.

Click on the checkbox by: Yes, please wipe all data off (IP ADDRESS)

Click ‘Reinstall’ when you’re ready to proceed.

Manual Install Docker

Install the yum-utils package (which provides the yum-config-manager utility)

sudo yum install -y yum-utils

and set up the stable repository.

sudo yum-config-manager \
    --add-repo \

Install the latest version of Docker Engine and containerd:

sudo yum install docker-ce docker-ce-cli

Start Docker.

sudo systemctl start docker


sudo docker run hello-world

Configure Docker to start on boot

sudo systemctl enable docker

To disable this behavior, use disable instead:

sudo systemctl disable docker

Configuration - .env




Configuration - .htpasswd

Conformément à la documentation de TeslaMate. Je vous recommande d'utiliser cet outil pour créer votre fichier .htpasswd :
Saisissez votre nom d'utilisateur, mot de passe et sélectionnez Bcrypt (à partir de Apache v2.4)
Dans l'exemple ci-dessous, j'ai saisi nom d'utilisateur et mot de passe pour ces champs :

Exemple :


Copiez et collez maintenant ces informations dans votre fichier .htpasswd.

vi .htpasswd (ou votre éditeur de texte préféré)

Assurez-vous de configurer votre mot de passe avant de commencer le Teslamate avec Docker !

docker-compose up

Note : Il se peut que vous deviez exécuter cette commande deux fois pour qu'elle fonctionne.

Configuration du DNS

You will need to point + (your subdomain) to the IP Address provided to you by BuyShared when you created your virtual server. This is done by contacting your web host or logging into your control panel to manage your DNS records and having these entries added.

Se connecter à TeslaMate

  1. Ouvrir l'interface web
    Connectez-vous avec les détails que vous avez saisis dans le fichier .htpasswd, puis vous serez invité à vous connecter avec votre compte Tesla.
  2. Connectez-vous avec votre compte Tesla
  3. Les tableaux de bord Grafana sont disponibles à l'adresse suivante:
  4. Entrez le nom d'utilisateur et le mot de passe :admin:admin et vous serez invité à changer le mot de passe lors de votre première connexion.

Your install is now upgraded and you can close out of the terminal. You can check the version by logging into your TeslaMate control panel.

Extra Protection

Let’s start by disabling/uninstalling FirewallD:

sudo yum remove -y firewalld

Now, let’s install/activate IPTables.

sudo yum install -y iptables-services
sudo systemctl start iptables

Configure IPTables to start automatically at boot time.

sudo systemctl enable iptables

IPTables on CentOS 7 comes with a default set of rules, which you can view with the following command.

sudo iptables -L -n

The output will resemble:

Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination         
ACCEPT     all  --              state RELATED,ESTABLISHED
ACCEPT     icmp --             
ACCEPT     all  --             
ACCEPT     tcp  --              state NEW tcp dpt:22
REJECT     all  --              reject-with icmp-host-prohibited

Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination         
REJECT     all  --              reject-with icmp-host-prohibited

Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination

You can see that one of those rules allows SSH traffic, so your SSH session is safe.

Because those rules are runtime rules and will be lost on reboot, it’s best to save them to a file using:

sudo /usr/libexec/iptables/iptables.init save

That command will save the rules to the /etc/sysconfig/iptables file. You can edit the rules anytime by changing this file with your favorite text editor.

Next, Allow Additional Traffic Through the Firewall

Since you’ll most likely be going to use your new server to host some websites at some point, you’ll have to add new rules to the firewall to allow HTTP and HTTPS traffic. To accomplish that, open the IPTables file:

sudo nano /etc/sysconfig/iptables

Just after or before the SSH rule, add the rules for HTTP (port 80) and HTTPS (port 443) traffic, so that that portion of the file appears as shown in the code block below.

-A INPUT -p tcp -m state --state NEW -m tcp --dport 22 -j ACCEPT
-A INPUT -p tcp -m state --state NEW -m tcp --dport 80 -j ACCEPT
-A INPUT -p tcp -m state --state NEW -m tcp --dport 443 -j ACCEPT
-A INPUT -j REJECT --reject-with icmp-host-prohibited

Save and close the file, then reload IPTables.

sudo systemctl reload iptables

With the above step completed, your CentOS 7 server should now be reasonably secure and be ready for use in production.

Other Security?

I want to preface this next idea by saying that you may run into issues because TeslaMate’s SSL Cert requires the subdomains be pointed to the IP Address of your VPS, however if you hide it behind Cloudflare, this won’t be the case and SSL will fail to renew on restarts of TeslaMate. So, I no longer recommend enabling CF until it’s fully supported by the developer. I am going to leave it here for food for thought.

cloudflare |
Setup Self-Hosted TeslaMate for $2 per Month in a BuyVM Slice 9

This is an extra step that isn’t required to get going but might provide a little bit of extra security to your subdomains. Sign-up for Cloudflare! It’s a free service that protects and speeds up your website.

  1. Click on ‘DNS’.
  2. For your grafana (A Record):
    Set Proxy status to Proxied.
  3. Also, for your teslamate (A Record):
    Set Proxy status to Proxied.

You will now notice that if you ping your subdomains they now have a lower ping and a different IP address because you are now routing your traffic through the Cloudflare Network and your IP address with BuyVM is now hidden during DNS requests.

I have tested enabling proxy mode for awhile now and haven’t encountered any issues so far.

J'espère que ce guide de configuration vous a été utile. 🙂
