Part 2 – Basic Functions

Although you can do many things in HyperVM, there are a few important functions you will need to know in order to use your VPS successfully.
NOTE: To return to the main screen at any time, click the "VM Home" tab at the top of the page or the "VM Home" link at the top of the screen, depending on what screen you are on at the time.

Password Management

In HyperVM there are two different password icons. If you would like to change the password for your "username.vm" user – the one you used to login to HyperVM, you will need to click on this icon:
If you would like to change the root password for your VPS you will need to click on this icon:
The root password is for the operating system running on your VPS. This password allows you to login with shell access and perform any function on the server. It is recommended that you change this password for security reasons. By default it is set to the same as your HyperVM password.


Because your VPS is a self-contained environment you have the ability to restart your VPS at your convenience. This is useful if you have "locked up" your server or if your server becomes unresponsive. You VPS is already booted after ordering, which is indicated by the green circle at the top of the HyperVM interface. A red circle at the top indicates the VPS is shutdown.
These buttons are just like pushing the power button on your home computer. Clicking the Shutdown icon will safely turn your VPS off. Clicking Reboot is instant -- just like the reset button on your home computer -- but will use safe shutdown methods if possible.

Rebuilding your VPS

One of the greatest features of a VPS system is the ability to rebuild your VPS at any time. You can rebuild using the same template or you can choose one of our other pre-made templates. To see the most current list of available templates please click the following link, then scroll to the bottom of the page: http://www.a2hosting.com/services/vps-hosting/
Why would you want to rebuild? VPS systems make great "playgrounds". If you want to try something new, do it. You can rebuild to a fresh system with a few clicks. Have you ever wanted to try a different Linux distribution that you are used to using? Just rebuild with the template of your choice and try it. If you don't like it you can always go back to the previous template.
By default, the kloxo-hostinabox template is installed (unless you ordered cPanel). This template is recommended for most users who want the control a VPS offers but the ease of use of a graphical interface for all tasks. For full documentation on the Kloxo template please see the following: http://www.a2hosting.com/kb/kloxo_VPS.pdf
To rebuild your VPS, just click on the "Rebuild" icon.
You will be presented with a screen that looks like the following image:
Just use the dropdown box to selecte the template you would like to use, check the "Confirm Rebuild" checkbox and click the "Update" button.
IMPORTANT: Any data on the current VPS will be destroyed. Be sure to make any needed backups BEFORE rebuilding. Once you click the "Update" button you cannot cancel the process.

Setting the Hostname

To set the hostname for your VPS click the "Network" icon under the 'Console' section. You will see a screen similar to the following:
The "Resolv Entries" should be filled already. DO NOT change these values or your VPS will not function properly.
NOTE: If you update your hostname through the shell it will be reset to the value in the "Network" section of HyperVM when you restart your VPS. Always use this method to set or update your hostname.


To adjust the way your HyperVM interface looks, click the "Appearance" tab at the top of the main HyperVM screen. Most of the options are self-explanatory. One option worth noting is the "Enable Ajax" checkbox. By checking this box then clicking update, you will be able to drag-and-drop the boxes which contain the icons into any order you chose. This is helpful for putting the options you use the most at the top of the page so they are easily accessible upon login.


The last topic covered in this document is DNS configuration across the different VPS platforms. Please see the next sections of this document for detailed explanation of configuring DNS in HyperVM, Kloxo, and cPanel.
