    Password/login problems

    First what I want to say is, hello everyone

    I know there are alot topic with this question, but I dont have found the right/working answere.
    Maybe I dont have look at the right things, I hope you can tell me.

    I'll give so much information as I can, but my enlish isnt very well, ( I live in the Netherlands ).

    Enough talk, here the information:

    The server is a dedicated one with

    Chenbro 2U rack mount case
    Intel D946 Mainboard
    10/100 Mbit onboard NIC
    Intel Dual Core E2160 1,8 GHz
    2 x 512MB Kingston DDR2 RAM
    160GB Seagate SATA2 disk
    BenQ DVD-ROM speler
    Floppy drive
    FreeBSD 6A 32bit

    Hostname = rs-hosting.eu

    Original its from transip, that deliver the freebsd with DA license.
    So far so good.

    Its also the first time that I logon on the server, so I do it step for step.

    1.Connect with SSH ( putty ) to the server
    2.User: admin, password automatic made
    3.passwd admin to ( i.e admin123 )
    4.Su root
    5.passwd root to ( i.e root123 )
    well, that works fine, I reconnect to the server and can logon succesfully with the new passwords

    Next step what I did was follow the steps into the installguid >> http://www.directadmin.com/installguide.html <<

    Step 1: Do you meet the system requirements? >> No Problem works
    Step 2: Make sure your license information is correct. >> Also the good one
    Step 3: Begin the installation!
    > fetch http://www.directadmin.com/setup.sh >> file download succecfull
    > chmod 755 setup.sh >> succecfull
    > ./setup >> also everythings goings good
    I have chose for the Costumbuild

    Installation is done and I go automatic to the scripts folder.
    Where I look for the information. ( /usr/local/directadmin/scripts/setup.txt )

    That tells me that the
    mysqlusername = da_admin with
    password ( i.e da_mysql123 )
    And the weblogin =
    adminname = admin
    adminpassword = ( i.e webadmin123 )
    then I go to the webserver with rs-hosting.eu:2222

    but If I put the weblogin details
    name = admin
    password = webadmin123
    it says
    "DirectAdmin Login Page
    Invalid login. Please verify your Username and Password"
    I have try many things, reinstalling da, dont work
    looking in the directadmin.conf ... but cant find where the weblogin could be.

    When I take an look at server other topics I see that the normal password must the same as the da password?

    I have tried to enter alle combinations into the weblogin but nothing works.

    And here is the point that I dont have the experience to search the error :-(

    I hope someone here can help me, to fix/solve the problem.

    First check: /var/log/directadmin/install.log and check the password in there.

    You can always reset the admin password by logging into the server via SSH as root and type the following:
    passwd admin

    Hello,
    Thank you for posting,

    This is what I tried
    admin# view /var/log/directadmin/install.log
    When I do that I get an list with firectories and files, but I dont see passwords
    or files with passports

    The main problem is in my opinion that i dont have a password for weblogin

    Code:
    passwd admin
    and enter a new password

    Well, The problem is not the login for ssh, but login for DA webadmin
    That says the password isnt right

    Im stuggling to understand what you mean..

    You need to enter admin as the username and the pasword it generated when directadmin was installed.

    What im saying is login to root via ssh and reset the admin password:
    passwd admin
    When you have changed the password, goto the directadmin login page and enter admin and the new password.

    I dont get an password and username....... Only my server information...


    But you say I can solve it by change the admin password of the admin in ssh?

    I have changed the password in ssh, and I go back to the weblogin and put the new details, but the same problem....

    When I typ
    admin
    test

    I got no error, but dont get an admin panel orso.


    Let me explain what I mean...
    Normaly ( I think ) I must get after the installation the admin details
    But I got only the server details and no login details.....

    Unfortunately, even after "passwd admin", and new password entering, I can't login...
    Any help? Is there something wrong with my RH+Directadmin box?

    I think maybe you should contact directadmin support

    http://www.directadmin.com/support.html

    For a quick fix, you should be able to try:
    Code:
    cd /usr/local/directadmin/scripts
    ./fix_da_user.sh admin admin
    but if there is something wrong with the installer, by all means, contact us, as we'd want to fix any issues, should they exist.

    problem solution

    hi
    for help to other users, if this problem happened :
    This problem is due to the full drive capacity server...
    so you must be go ssh and delete some file to free space , and resolve problem.
    thanks

    In /etc/login.conf you may check the passwd_format variable. You may need to change it to md5 if your passwords are stored that way.
