  1. Hi dOOp, thank you for your reply. actually phpmyadmin is often used for editing database users in content management systems in particular...Wordpress being just one example where its extensively used for just this job as a fail safe when nothing else works (ie when the recover password option is not an option) Anyway, take the following: I install froxlor and use it for about 2 hours having logged in and out a few times during this time without issue. I havent set up everything as i am just testing the program, hence no password recovery option is enabled. I log off, go to bed, get up the next morning to find that the only password i ever use for all my installations is no longer working (how that happens i dont know but it has). I now need to edit the user password manually to regain acess to froxlor without having to reinstall. My assumption is that the method would be, as i have done with Wordpress, use phpmyadmin to change the password directly in the database. Is that how you guys would do it? which hash algorythm is used for froxlor? (wordpress uses MD5)
  2. another quickie whilst on topic...usually with some other programs one may edit the user (such as change admin password) using phpmyadmin. I attempted to do this today and it doesnt appear to make any difference...ie its not working. Any suggestions?
  3. And yet they go to all the trouble to write an install document...most people would expect said documentation to be up to date with the O/S its designed to run on. The additional directory added by debian happened quite a while ago...certainly plenty of time to update this. In all honesty, a very quick and easy 2 minute change to the installation instructions could save many users lots of frustration.. and help retain client base instead of driving them away to better documented competing platforms. Just get someone to update the document...i would do it myself if i had access to it. Its unfortunate that i found the answer to my problem on digital ocean's forum rather than here.
  4. ah, i found the problem...i noticed that in another post on Digital Ocean's forum there was a mention that in ubuntu 14lts there is an additional level of folder for the web directory... /var/www/html. The installation documentation i read on froxlor makes no mention of the new directory and as such i placed my froxlor directory and file inside /var/www/ . When i searched the www directory i saw that it had an index.html file there and assumed this was the apached one, when apached actually has files inside the /var/www/html/ directory. So for newbies...please ensure that when you are following the froxlor installation documentation, you download all froxlor files and folders to /var/www/html/ (not /var/www/ ). then its just a matter of navigating in web browser to <yourwebserverexternalipaddress>/froxlor (or if hostname has been set to domain name <yourdomain.com>/froxlor)
  5. Hi guys, I have a google cloud compute debian instance I have been experimenting with a couple of alternatives to cpanel. Just installed virtualmin and now am looking at froxlor. I have followed the install outline as documented. 1. I setup a google cloud launcher LAMP 2. navigated in browser to <myserveripadress> to ensure apache is working (which it is) 3. downloaded froxlor to /var/www/ directory 4. chown froxlor to www-data:www-data (i also checked to ensure my webserver is running as www-data) Now when i attempt to navigate to http://<mywerveripadress>/froxlor i get the following error in browser "NOTFOUND" the requested URLwas not found on this server. now when i ssh into server, froxlor is definatelly in /var/www/ directory. permissions are 0755 www-data:www-data i am not sure what i have done wrong? has anyone with experience in installing this on google cloud got any advice?
