4.1. Logging In to Virtuozzo PowerPanel¶
To log in to the Virtuozzo PowerPanel web interface, visit controller node’s hostname or IP address in a supported web browser.
- The latest versions of all popular web browsers are supported: Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Opera, Safari.
- Regular users can also log in to manage single VEs via an old-style welcome screen accessible at
https://<controller_hostname>/login/ve. For details, see the Virtuozzo PowerPanel User’s Guide.
If you deployed the controller with a self-signed certificate, accept it when prompted and add it to browser’s exceptions.
Some browsers, e.g., Firefox, require exceptions to be added in the form of
<controller_address>:<port> for ports 6556, 6557, and 35357.
You will be taken to the welcome screen where you will need to enter the username
admin and the password created during controller setup (see Deploying the Controller).
After logging in, you will be taken to the main screen of Virtuozzo PowerPanel.
At any time, you can click the Virtuozzo PowerPanel logo in the top left corner to return to the main screen.
On the main screen, you can see the list of virtual environments hosted on all compute nodes. The VEs in the list are divided into groups based on what user they are assigned to, if any: Unassigned, Admin, and <username>.
Each VE area in the list expands on click, showing more details about the VE, including state, type, UUID, name, IP address (the one assigned with
prlctl, not the one obtained from inside the guest OS), virtual hardware configuration, backups, and logs. In the VE area, you can also see the buttons for tasks available for this specific VE.
In the admin mode, the administrator can perform the following tasks:
- Assign VEs to users and unassign VEs from users, see Managing Virtual Environment Assignments.
- Impersonate users to perform user-specific VE management tasks, see Impersonating Users.
These tasks are described in more detail in the following sections.
