Unable to access cpanel etc... Should be a simple fix.
Your server has been started in 'Rescue' mode. This has either been requested by you in the OVH manager
or a technician has had to do this because of an error that needs to be resolved in Rescue mode.
This mode means that a basic Linux/BSD system has been launched on your server through the network.
This is not the system installed on your server and none of your disks have been mounted.
A web interface is available for you to carry out diagnosis on your server (hard disk, raid, ram, CPU)
and to browse your file systems using the following details:
- [login to view URL]
- user: root
- password: whllX6WVhSux
You may connect to your server through SSH with the following details:
- IP: [login to view URL]
- user: root
You can now carry out the maintenance required to the repair your server.
For example, you can:
- check and update your network configuration files,
- check and decontaminate your firewall if required,
- check and update your LILO or GRUB (or to configure another Netboot via the network)
- launch a manual check of your file systems,
- carry out backup or restoration of data,
If you think you have identified and fixed the problem and wish to boot from
the OS installed in your server, you must configure the 'Netboot' in the OVH Manager to the HD or
to an OVH-certified kernel.
You may then soft-reboot your server (avoid reboots via Manager).
