Ajenti Down After Update?

Main Street James 7 years ago updated by Eugene Pankov (Project coordinator) 7 years ago 2
I updated Ajenti via the Ajenti package manager and it never came back after it displayed "Lost Connection". 

It's been over 1/2 hour and I still can't access the Ajenti control panel. When I check services ajenti shows that it is running and so is a new service ajenti.dpkg-new

This can happen if ajenti package was installed with dpkg --force-all
I updated the rest of the packages on my VPS manually and now:
- the ajenti.dpkg-new service is gone.
- ajenti status looks correct.
- I get an ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR when trying to connect to Ajenti on port 8000 via https.
- I cannot log in to Ajenti on port 8000 via http (I'm promoted for username & password but the login is rejected).
Here is what appears to have happened: the update renamed my config.json file and installed a new default config.json file.

I renamed my original file back to config.json and copied the installation_id value from the newly config.json file. It appears that everything is OK now.

Any idea as to why the update would disregard my config file?
