I have finally managed to install aegir on a vps. I have also set the dns of my domain and I can i can finally see my login panel. The problem is that I don’t have username and password. The documentation says I should have a temporary link to set the password but I can’t find that temporary link. I tried to reset the password but obviously I can’t receive any mail because I have never done any login so far. There is any file that I can check to find username and password please? enter image description here

You can always generate another temporary login link. This recipe will log you into the VM, switch you to the Aegir user, and then generate the link.

  1. ssh aegir.example.com
  2. sudo -sHu aegir
  3. drush @hostmaster user-login

The output will be a URL, which you can open in your browser.
