Demo Server Online Now

The long-awaited demo server is up and running. Now you can try out all of the various features of Virtualmin, using a root account, a reseller account, and a domain owner account. <p> You can try out Virtualmin Professional using the following address:<p> <a href=""></a><p> The user accounts available are: <p> <b>Administrator (root):</b><br> Username: root<br> Password: demo <p> <b>Reseller:</b><br> Username: reseller<br> Password: demo <p> <b>Domain Owner:</b><br> Username: demo<br> Password: demo<br> <p> Note that the demo system will be unavailable for a few minutes every day as it is rebooted with a pristine copy of itself. This is to insure that if the demo server (which really is providing root access when you login as root) is mostly always in a usable state. So, if you find it unavailable, try again in a couple of minutes. If you login and find it an unusable mess, it's probably not the fault of the software, drop me an email and I'll reset the system immediately. Note also that the demo system can't actually do much, like serve pages, send mail, etc. as it is inside of a private network that allows very little traffic in or out (pretty much just port 10000, actually). But you can try all of the features of Virtualmin and Webmin and see how domains are created and managed.

I've tried it a few times, but the demo server seems to be offline/inaccessible....

Ha! Someone wanted to test whether root was really root, and shut down the system. The nightly reimage and reboot brought it back to life.

Let's hope folks don't make a habit of that in the future...I reckon I can restrict Webmin a bit to prevent that sort of thing, and if one day is all it takes for someone to shut it down it seems I'll have to.

Life is hard. ;-)
