    Here, I am seeing a popup dialog that says “Data already exists at the entered location.”.

    I was able to get wordpress running within virtualbox on google pretty easily , however can you provide me some direction on how to get the google cloud service to use a custom domain. I know I will need to change cname records and A records with my registrar, and I see above that I need to know the ip address of the server running wordpress, but I am not sure where or how to find this information with googles dashboard.

    • Hi Tal,
      Thank you for using ClouSE and WP2Cloud!
      The IP address that you need to know is the IP address of the machine that runs WordPress. In this case this the IP address of your virtual appliance and it depends on the infrastructure that you use to run it. E.g. if you rent a physical server from a hoster, you need to talk to the hoster, etc. Feel free to contact us for further clarifications.
