Cant log in. Default nginx page seen

  • I'm doing this for the first time. so do be nice lol
    I just got a new G5 enterprise grade server and its setup and online.
    I have followed the Install setup for Pufferpanel the best i can. but i still get the nginx default page. and i would like to access it as "Admin.foxnetwork.us" and no idea how to do this. i did buy the domain name allready with namecheap(also lost on that setup). what info do you need from me to hel pp you guys out? i do run Ubuntu 16.4 and apache2 is removed with purge

  • First, make sure you restarted nginx just in case it failed:

    systemctl restart nginx

    Second, when you installed the panel, did you use that URL as the site's address, or did you use something else?

  • i did the restarts as suggested. and i used my external IP. same issue

  • You need to use the same address that you put when the installer asked for the site url.

  • So I don't use my external IP( I use the internal IP( I did use the external ip. When I did the setup I used the external ip

  • If you used (physically typed in), then you need to use that to get to the server.

  • I have. And same issue I reinstalled pufferpanel like 3 times..

  • Follow my comments on https://community.pufferpanel.com/topic/439/connecting-externally/2 then to add more acceptable URLs to nginx (and then restart nginx)

  • Ok. When I did the setup I used my external IP. And this server_name file where would it be so I can edit it

  • You should not be touching the pufferd config, that is not the config that you should be editing.

    NGinx configs are located in /etc/nginx/conf.d or /etc/nginx/sites-enabled

  • OK so i got it to display. using the networks internal IP....
    but how do i setup puffer.myhostname.com
    and i have this...
    When i tryed to make a new server (i didnt have a plugin list as well)
    An error occurred while trying to connect to the remote node. Please check that the daemon is running and try again.
