Superuser access required

Sazern 3 years ago updated by brgdvl 12 months ago 10

Hello i just installed Ajenti on my Ubuntu 16.04.1 server and it all works fine but im not able to access the settings or plugin page. It just says "superuser access required".

So i go to the user menu and press elevate, i type in my sudo password but it says incorrect password. Even if im logged in with the sudo user (same password)

Anyone noticed this issue? Tried my google skills but didnt find any solution or thread about it.

I just installed Ajenti but don't have the super user access. I also tried google but didn't find any solution

Guess this project is dead :(

I have same issue. it say

Superuser access required. also dashboard and options are not like example.


I solved the issue.
first check your all user list. then change your password for root. try login with username root and password is your pass.

is that only way to login with root ?


set root password by "sudo passwd root" and then login using username root and your password


But is no way to login with "mortal" user and then use some pivilegue elevation functionality?, like in COCKPIT?



Login with root/admin   then go to "Users" and youcan choose local auth, LDAP, OS Users, etc etc etc.


i elevated my self in the webgui, and used the password admin as suggested. So I didn't need to do anything with the root account. Didn't even use the root/admin login.

I have had added my OS account as restricted_user in /etc/ajenti/config.yml
