After the successful installation you can access CyberPanel using the details below:
- URL: https://
- Username: admin
Note: It is recommended that you change these details as soon as you are logged in.
That should be it. All installed.
"Your connection is not private Attackers might be trying to steal your information from hostname (for example, passwords, messages or credit cards). Learn more NET::ERR_CERT_INVALID"
The only workaround for this seems to be to type in: "thisisunsafe".
Once you're logged in, you can add the server hostname as a website and setup SSL on that.
Error message: Blacklisted domain.
This is because you're trying to add the hostname as the domain for the website.
CyberPanel does not allow you to add a website for the server hostname (it is unclear why).
The solution is to add a website using your domain (eg: example.com), then for the server hostname use a subdomain of that (eg: server.example.com).
Once you've set the server's hostname and added the website, you'll be able to set the hostname SSL.
Once you've issued the SSL. You can then access CyberPanel at:
https://"domain":8090 (eg: https://example.com:8090)
If you want to access CyberPanel on:
https://panel.example.com:8090, create an account with domain
. While creating an account you can either check SSL or not, it is optional.
