Accessing the Server Manager

NethServer can be configured using the Server Manager web interface. You need a web browser like Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome to access the web interface using the address (URL) https://a.b.c.d:980 or https://server_name:980 where a.b.c.d and server_name respectively are the server IP address and name configured during installation.

If the web server module is installed, you can also access the web interface using this address https://server_name/server-manager.

The Server Manager uses self-signed SSL certificates. You should explicitly accept them the first time you access the server. The connection is safe and encrypted.


The login page will give you a trusted access to the web interface. Log in as root and type the password chosen during NethServer installation.


The unattended install procedure sets the root password to the default Nethesis,1234.

Change the current password

You can change the root password from the web interface by going to the label on the upper right corner of the screen and clicking on Profile.

The login page allows selecting an alternative language among those already installed on the system. After logging in, go to the Software center page to install additional languages.


Terminate the current Server Manager session by going to the label on the upper right corner of the screen and by clicking on Logout.
