ZPanel error (using password: YES)

December 18, 2013 2.9k views
I have droplets with Ubuntu 12.04 and run nginx on it. I want install ZPanel but not in fresh droplets. "mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed error: 'Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)' ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)" "Critical Error: [0100] - Unable to connect or authenticate to the ZPanel database (zpanel_core).We advice that you contact the server administrator to ensure that the database server is online and that the correct connection parameter are being used." So what must i do if i got stuck at that step? Thank you!

zPanel is not meant to be installed on existing droplets. I recommend installing it on a new droplet and migrating your sites manually to make sure everything goes properly.

I'm no expert on ZPanel, but I think I remember reading that ZPanel is not compatible with Nginx. You may want to consider Webmin/Virtualmin, instead.
Virtualmin is a Webmin module which allows for extensive management of (multiple) virtual private servers. You will be able to manage Apache, Nginx, PHP, DNS, MySQL, PostgreSQL, mailboxes, FTP, SSH, SSL, Subversion/Git repositories and many more.
