hello guys.

I have a proxmox 5.x installed on top of Debian 9, local.
I followed the official guide for installing proxmox in debian 9 , but i cant connect to the web interface.

========================================================================
1. I "nmap [ip address] -p 8006" :
Host is up (0.00014s latency).
PORT STATE SERVICE
8006/tcp open unknown

2. pve-manager and pvedaemon are both active and runnin

3. command "wget --no-check-certificate https://192.168.10.249:8006 " outputs:
Connecting to 192.168.10.249:8006... connected.

4. "sudo lsof -i -n -P | grep -i 8006" :

COMMAND PID USER FD TYPE DEVICE SIZE/OFF NODE NAME
pveproxy 2641 www-data 6u IPv6 35102 0t0 TCP *:8006 (LISTEN)
pveproxy 3751 www-data 6u IPv6 35102 0t0 TCP *:8006 (LISTEN)
pveproxy 3752 www-data 6u IPv6 35102 0t0 TCP *:8006 (LISTEN)
pveproxy 3753 www-data 6u IPv6 35102 0t0 TCP *:8006 (LISTEN)

*i it find wierd that port 8006 isnt listening to ipv4, while most port listen to both

5. connecting to 192.168.10.249:8006 doesnt output anything, it just reloads forever.

6. "sudo systemctl status pveproxy":

Are you really certain that you want Debian 9 and PVE 5? It would make your life a lot easier to just install the PVE 6 ISO.

my issues have been resolved. turns out my hostname is wrong (i must use the same hostname i gave to my computer) and i made a self-signed certificate (thats the reason i can't connect tho all the daemon and ports are open and running).

SORRY FOR NOT CLOSING THIS THREAD.
