    Has anyone already verified the account? I signed up for free tier 1 week ago but nothing has happened since then, I can't access my account

    Nope, no-one on here has verified their account at all.

    Thank you @bloodyprince! Nice tutorial you have there. Yesterday I can successfully reserved an IP address, but confused how to attach it. So I released the IP, then I regret because it was damn cool IP address 🙁

    Oracle doesn't charge for IP (confirmed). So next time, don't release your 'cool IP' ;)

    I did as mentioned,
    But after reboot,i cant login with my ssh key i had set before creating my vps?

    Any idea how to get Debian 10 on this?

    As already mentioned by @ynzheng:
    https://www.lowendtalk.com/discussion/comment/3022902/#Comment_3022902

    wget https://moeclub.org/attachment/LinuxShell/InstallNET.sh
    bash InstallNET.sh -d 9 -v 64 -a -firmware
    

    This will install Debian 9 on the machine.
    The installer requires IP configuration to be present under /etc/network/interfaces
    It takes some time after rebooting to finish.
    After logging in to your Debian 9, you can easily do a dist-upgrade to Debian 10 straight forward.

    the root Password is :MoeClub.org

    chang it after you logon

    Anyone know if the US Regions (us-ashburn-1/ us-phoenix-1) currently has any resources for free-tier VM creation?

    I have resources both in us-phoenix-1, us-ashburn-1, and Zurich (don't know the region code). So far all have been reasonably consistent in provisioning of the free tier services (through a few Terraform destroys, yes, Terraform does have a provider module for them!).

    @ShalaWorks said:

    Yes, I have three accounts so far. Privacy cards do not work, but virtual credit cards (like Eno) work!

    How do you create free tier VMs in 3 regions? Those are tied to the home region, have you found a way around that, or use 3 separate accounts?

    definitely multiple accounts, while i'm still stuck being declined for 3 weeks without any response to my issue. I even willing to give them my ID, passport photo, my naked photo, call/video call me, anything they want. i have debit/credit cards, whatever cards they need. and their response is "we are still waiting for internal team investigation."

  • Sorry I missed reading in between this thread... but how do you get an IPv4 assigned to a VM ? If NAT'd, how do you access your VM ?

    get public ip (just like elastic ip on aws), then assign to vm

    Thanked by 1receivedthanks
  • I selected "Assign a public IP address" when I created the instance.

    Correct. Three physical different accounts. I have never had a manual verification - they have all been instantiated in less than 5 minutes and usable. Is it possible you're outside the US or using a payment method outside the US?

    Thanked by 1receivedthanks
  • I have more than one too

    Idiots with Oracle thought I was a scammer and did not activate the account.

    At first I didn’t let me register because I indicated my standard mail.ru mail. Then I changed to yandex.ua, passed the registration, and they did not want to activate the account.

    This morning oracle charges me 105 euros from my bankcard. My account was not activated. On such garbage services, I always indicate virtual cards so as not to fall for money in shitservices.

  • Don't worry it wont be charged/billed. Anyway, why don't you try with another email address like gmail or yahoo? Just make sure you don't use any adblock, or different geolocated IP address while registering.
    For lifetime free VPS from Oracle, it worth the hassle.

    They charged you 105 even though you haven't used their service yet?

    Maybe just a temporary charge, but that's very high one!

    No, a temp charge is 1EUR not 105EUR.

    For me it was a 121.41 EUR temporary charge from "ORACLE IRELAND" and 1 EUR charge a few days later (even after account verification).

    Did you deployed the largest server Oracle had?

    This charge was a part of manual account verification.

  • I am wondering why people still buying servers if they can get two free servers with 10TB free bandwidth?
