How to access and use Webuzo on a semi-managed server

This article describes how to use Webuzo on a semi-managed server. Webuzo includes a full-featured control panel, and an application installer that enables you to quickly and easily install a wide range of software applications with just a few clicks.

  • To access a demonstration version of Webuzo and try out its features, please visit http://demo.webuzo.com.

Accessing Webuzo

To access Webuzo, follow these steps:

  1. Use your web browser to go to https://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:2005, where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx represents the IP address of your server.
    Webuzo installs a self-signed SSL certificate by default so you can connect using a secure connection. However, to access Webuzo (or any other websites you run on the server) without seeing a browser warning, you must install an SSL certificate provided by a CA (Certificate Authority).
  2. On the Sign in page, in the Username text box, type the Webuzo username that you specified in your order.
  3. In the Password text box, type the Webuzo password that you specified in your order.
  4. Click Login. The Webuzo dashboard appears.

Using Webuzo for system administration

You can use Webuzo to do a wide range of system administration tasks for your server. For example, you can manage DNS settings, databases, e-mail, and much more.

Webuzo provides detailed documentation for all of these features. To view the Webuzo documentation, please visit http://webuzo.com/wiki/Main_Page#Documentation.
