[SOLVED] [need help] no more web access to proxmox 5


Oct 18, 2017
i'm a french user of proxmox 5 installed on a hp microserver.
all worked fine but now i can't access to the web administration via ip:8006.

i can only access via ssh.
i don't have done something special.
i've rebooted the server but it's the same.

firefox says it can't made the connection and chromium connexion refused.

i don't know what to verify and i would like some help.
SSH is good. You can repair a lot of stuff with SSH access. ;-)
Please be aware that I may be a Linux veteran, but am a Proxmox Newbie, so there may be other best practices.

1) Check PVE proxy is running

> ps aux | grep pveproxy

if no,

> systemctl restart pveproxy

and you will probably see an error.

2) if yes, make sure you have "lsof" installed

> lsof | grep 8006

This should show pveproxy attached to port 8006


If both of these things work, it means you or someone probably turned on some kind of firewall.
Check these first, report, then we'll see in which direction to go.
