VMmanager 6: Administrator guide

Installation

If you are testing VMmanager, in the Client area at my.ispsystem.com you will see the section "ISPsystem 6 licenses" with the information about your test license. To install VMmanager you will need the value from the Token field. 

Note

SELinux will be disabled during the installation as it prevents the platform from working correctly.

Installation steps


  1. Connect to the server via SSH with the superuser permissions (root per default). 
  2. Download the installation script: 

    curl -O http://download.ispsystem.com/6/installer/vm/vm
  3. Make it executable:

    chmod +x vm
  4. Run the installation process using the license token:

    ./vm install -l token

    Where:

    • token —  the value of the Token parameter of your license. You can find it in the Client area my.ispsystem.com on the license information page.
  5. After the platform is installed successfully, in the terminal you will see the access link to VMmanager: 

    The panel has been successfully installed
    Link to administrator registration page: https://1.2.3.4/auth/setup?token=C50A0BFA55DEDE3343AABE713022A15F
  6. The installer will be started as the systemd service. Use it to run the installer again.
  7. Use this link to open the web interface of VMmanager and enter the credentials of the first user.

After installation, VMmanager platform will be available by the IP address or domain name of your server.


When VMmanager is installed on the server, but the first user is not created, you can get the unique link to the web-interface: 

  1. Connect through SSH to the server with VMmanager. 
  2. Execute the installation command through the systemd service vm: 

    vm install -l token 

    Where:

    • token —  the value of the Token parameter of your license. You can find it in the Client area my.ispsystem.com on the license information page.
  3. Log in to the interface using the link and specify the credentials of the first user.
