Complete LAMP setup without logging in

After creating a new droplet using the LAMP stack image and a custom cloud-init script that installs a web application, I want to access the installed web application directly.

Currently after the droplet is created I am forced to login first into it before the web application is visible: “Please log into your Droplet with SSH to configure the LAMP installation.”

Is there any way to disable that initial login request and make the droplet work without having to access it? I think it could be in the form of adding another command into the user data #cloud-config runcmd.

What I would usually do in such case is to create a LAMP Droplet then make all of the required customization and take a Snapshot.

After that I can use the Snapshot to spin up new Droplets.
