HAve problem with Ajenti, phpmyadmin, or webmin internet login

Posted July 15, 2014 3.6k views

Hi all,

Can you please to help me? I don’t understand why all program which I installed through DO instruction, follow strictly, but I can’t access it from the internet. For example: ajenti, phpmyadmin and webmin. I tried Lamp and Lemp, I can see the “it works!” and “welcome to nginx” webpage. However when I type in the server ip address with the port, or even the test info.php, nothing show up. Someone help me…

Sorry to hear that you’re running into issues. It’s hard to give you much help without knowing what you are trying to accomplish. It’s also hard to answer questions about more than one task at the same time. I’d encourage you to break up your question into smaller chunks with more information about the problems you encounter.

A good place to start debugging you problems is by look at your error logs. If you are using LAMP, run:

tail /var/log/apache2/error.log

Or if you are using LEMP, run:

tail /var/log/nginx/error.log

Sorry for asking many questions at the same time. I will start with my lamp question first. I followed and installed lamp stack with DO instruction, then follow another instruction to install ajenti and phpmyadmin. Everything seems ok, until I try to test the installation by go to web browser and type in my server ip for ajenti –> no page was found
and –> browser keep downloading a file

I have no idea why that happen. I don’t have any firewall set up, no blocking port, etc..

Hi there,

I have a solution for your problem…

First of all you must install the ajenti from beginning.

When you log in to agent and open web sites.
Ajenti ask you to start NGINX ..
do not enable.

After this update apache2, mysql and php5

Ajenti is an open source web based control panel for Linux servers. It offers a graphical user interface to perform most of the actions required to configure and keep your server up to date. If you prefer to have a simple yet solid control panel with some eye candy, Ajenti is definitely worth checking out.
