Welcome message

Once you have purchased a VPS and paid for it, you will receive a welcome letter. Carefully read the letter and keep it in a safe place, because you may need it later. Find the following information:

Control panel: ISPmanager Lite (www.ispsystem.com)
URL to ISPmanager https:// XX.XXX.XX.XX /manager/
Address of your virtual server : your_vps.joinvps.com
user: root
password: XXXXX
IP address assigned to your virtual server: XX.XXX.XX.XX
First NS: ns1.joinvps.com XX.XXX.XX.X
Second NS: ns2.joinvps.com XX.XXX.XX.XX

Control panel URL

Open your browser to enter the URL to ISPmanager provided in the welcome letter: https:// XX.XXX.XX.XX /manager/. Note, if the IP address starts with "https", all the data that are transferred between server and browser will be encrypted. If you type in http://, the error message will be shown.

Fatal error:
Please change your protocol. You should use 'https' to work with this program.

Authorization and License agreement

After you have entered the URL, you will go to the “Authorization” page. Enter "root" into the “Username” field, enter the password from your welcome letter into the "Password" field.

You are not required to enter anything into the third and the forth fields. The "License agreement" will be shown next. This page will appear only once. "Welcome root... Congratulations!" You successfully access the control panel of your server.

Administrators. Changing the password

Go to the the “Accounts management” section -> the “Administrator management” module. There is only "root" account on the list. You may add more administrator accounts for managing your server. Open the “Root” edit form by selecting it in the table and clicking the “Edit” icon. You can open the form by double-clicking the required line. There you can change the root password. All of the other administrator's properties are read-only.

Warning! If you change the root password, keep it in mind. If you forget your password, only the technical support specialists will be able to recover it.

System information

Go to the “Statistics” section -> the “System information” module. There you can monitor information concerning your VPS resources and server parameters. Double-click the “Disk space size” line. “Disk information” will be displayed. “Used/total”: 1/400. This means that you have used 1 MB from 400 MB that are allocated to you.

Return to the previous page by clicking the "Back" icon. Double-click the “Processes number” to view the “Processes list”. You will see the information concerning all the processes that are currently running on your server.

Active sessions and Action log

Go to the “Statistics” section -> the “Active sessions” module. There you can view information about all users who are currently working in the ISPmanager control panel.

Go the “Statistics” section -> the “Action log” module. There you can view the history of the operations that your users performed in the control panel. You can locate the information about the operation time, user who performed this operation, and his IP address. To search necessary information You may set a filter by providing required parameters.

If you have changed your password, you will see that in the Log:
2006-12-06 06:34:50 root xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx mgradmin.edit

Server parameters

Go to the "Server settings" section —> the "Server parameters" module.

"Server name" is your hostname. You cannot change it via ISPmanager, and normally it is not necessary.

"Time zone" is a local time of the server. Choose the time zone to display the time in your locale.

"Forward root e-mail" is an email address of the root user. We recommend that you provide a valid email address to receive system notifications.

IP addresses

Go to the “Server settings” section -> the “IP address management” module to view a list of IP addresses assigned to your VPSs. You may order additional IP addresses or cancel those you do not need; the primary IP address will remain unchanged.

You can choose different statuses for your IP addresses. For example, you can assign an IP address to a user, and no one else will be able to assign it to his domains.

Database servers

Go to the “Server setting” sections -> the “Database servers” module. There is one record for MySQL server running on your VPS. Open the MySQL server edit form. Locate the following information:
"Password" is a current root password that is used to access the server without MySQL database.
"Encoding" is a default encoding for a MySQL tables.

PHP extensions

Go to the “Server settings” section -> the “PHP extensions” module. All the PHP extensions installed on your server are shown on the list. Each of them has an “Enabled” or “Disabled” status. If there is a lock-like icon, this extension is compiled into PHP and cannot be disabled. You can enable or disable PHP extensions, if necessary. We recommend enabling only those extensions your scripts require, because active extensions consume much server resources.

General settings

Go to the “General settings” module to change your control panel's parameters. You can choose a language and theme, set the number of lines per page, allow or deny access from IP addresses, or change the password of the current user.
