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.

Note

  1. The latest versions of all popular web browsers are supported: Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Opera, Safari.
  2. 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.

Note

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).

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.
