Logging in to the user panel

To log in to the Virtuozzo Hybrid Infrastructure user panel, do the following:

  1. On any computer with access to the web interface, in a web browser visit http://<user_panel_IP_address>:8888/s3/.

    If you use a self-signed certificate, add it to the browser’s exceptions.

  2. On the login screen, enter your credentials, and then click Log in.

If logging in to the user panel fails, this can be caused by one of the following reasons:

  • Error: "Network failure. Check your S3 endpoint or access protocol (HTTP/HTTPS)."

    • The client is trying to access a bucket over HTTP. This does not work in most browsers, as parts of the web interface are served over HTTPS and mixed HTTP/HTTPS connections are forbidden. To solve the problem, access the service over HTTPS.
    • The client cannot resolve the DNS name associated with the service. In this case, add the mapping in your DNS. Alternatively, you can solve the problem by adding static mappings to the hosts file (/etc/hosts on Linux or %windir%\System32\drivers\etc\hosts on Windows); note that this needs to be done on all clients.
    • The service is using a self-signed or invalid SSL certificate. In this case, use a valid SSL certificate recognized by a certificate authority. Alternatively, you can temporarily solve the problem by pointing the browser to the service URL (for example, https://s3.example.com) and manually accepting the certificate; note that this only works on the client where the certificate has been manually accepted.
  • Error: "Bad signature. Check your key and signing method."

    • The client or server time or timezone are incorrect.
    • The user credentials are incorrect.
    • The S3 user is disabled.

Once you log in to the web interface, you will see the Buckets screen with the list of your buckets. From here, you can manage buckets, as well as folders and files stored inside the buckets.

To log out, click the user icon in the upper right corner of any screen, and then click Log out.
