Performing Post-Installation Tasks

Built-in Accounts

Standard Parallels H-Sphere installation would include two accounts, neither of which may be deleted:

  1. the admin account (login: admin, password: admin) to configure system settings. It is extremely recommended to change the password of the admin account after the installation and testing have been completed.
  2. the wwwuser account (login: wwwuser, password: userwwww) to manage the control panel domain.


After the installation, the control panel becomes accessible at the address:
http://your_ip_address:8080 or

If your Parallels H-Sphere has been configured with SSL protection, use the addresses:
https://your_ip_address:8443 or

DNS Configuration

Some Parallels H-Sphere features (like webmail, WebShell, phpMyAdmin) will work only after you add a DNS zone and an instant alias template. To check these features immediately, specify in the DNS configuration of your local workstation (not Parallels H-Sphere server) that Parallels H-Sphere primary DNS server is your primary nameserver. For example, if your workstation is Linux, add a corresponding line in /etc/resolv.conf.

If you are running a one box installation, you can have two DNS IPs for ns1 and ns2. At least two DNS servers are required to offer domian registration services with OpenSRS or Enom. If you need more than two DNS servers, you need to set up one more box, and your DNS services need to be fully reconfigured.


The Parallels H-Sphere Control Panel requires the postgresql daemon running. Don't start Parallels H-Sphere CP without it. To find out if PostgreSQL is running, type:


/etc/init.d/postgresql status
