Post-Installation Manual

WARNING: This documentation covers Parallels H-Sphere versions up to 3.1. For the latest up-to-date Parallels H-Sphere documentation, please proceed to the official Parallels site.

Built-in Accounts

Standard H-Sphere installation would include two accounts, neither of which may be deleted:

  1. the admin account (login: admin, password: admin) to configure system settings. It is extremely recommended to change the password of the admin account after the installation and testing have been completed.
  2. the wwwuser account (login: wwwuser, password: userwwww) to manage the control panel domain.

CP URL

After the installation, the control panel becomes accessible at the address:
http://your_ip_address:8080 or
http://cp.your_domain_name:8080

If your H-Sphere has been configured with SSL protection, use the addresses:
https://your_ip_address:8443 or
https://cp.your_domain_name:8443

You can also customize your CP URL.

DNS Configuration

Some H-Sphere features (like webmail, WebShell, phpMyAdmin) will work only after you add a DNS zone and an instant alias template. To check these features immediately, specify in the DNS configuration of your local workstation (not H-Sphere server) that H-Sphere primary DNS server is your primary nameserver. For example, if your workstation is Linux, add a corresponding line in /etc/resolv.conf.

If you are running a one box installation, you can have two DNS IPs for ns1 and ns2. At least two DNS servers are required to offer domian registration services with OpenSRS or Enom. If you need more than two DNS servers, you need to set up one more box, and your DNS services need to be fully reconfigured.

PostgreSQL

The H-Sphere Control Panel requires the postgresql daemon running. Don't start H-Sphere CP without it. To find out if PostgreSQL is running, type:

Linux:

/etc/init.d/postgresql status

FreeBSD:

/usr/local/etc/rc.d/010.pgsql.sh
