bookmark_borderIncrediblePBX 2021 Template now available

Hello!

Today we take a look at our newest available template, IncrediblePBX 2021

One of the most significant changes in this new template is that the new version of IncrediblePBX is based on Debian 10 compared to the previous edition which was based off CentOS 7.

  1. First, Open a Support Ticket at the client area requesting to add the Debian based IncrediblePBX2021 template to your account.
  2. Now, IncrediblePBX can be installed via the re-install option in the control panel, you can find it under Debian menu with the label Deb-IncrediblePBX2021, for Instructions on how to re-install click here.
  3. Next, SSH into the server to complete the remaining installation steps. It is an interactive process from here on and the system will prompt you for some inputs to complete the configuration.

NOTE: The first IP Address accessing the IncrediblePBX server is whitelisted and to access the server again the same IP address is required, we recommend you to use a VPN, or have a static IP configured on your local system to access the server remotely anytime.

Note: Users can always whitelist more IPs as they need and/or disable the firewall.

Accessing The IncrediblePBX Admin Panel

To manage your IncrediblePBX instance through a web browser you first need to setup the admin password,

To setup a password for the Admin Panel — login SSH into the server as the root user and issue the following command,

./admin-pw-change

Once the password is set – Open the browser and enter the following URL,

http://server-ip-address/

Login credentials,

  • Username – admin
  • Password – use the password that you have set in the previous step.

This would conclude the installation of Debian based IncrediblePBX on CrownPanel.

bookmark_borderUsing SSH keys with your KVM VPS on CrownPanel

Hello!

In this week’s feature highlight, we look at how to use SSH keys with your KVM VPS on CrownPanel.

SSH (Secure Shell) is a widely-used protocol for interacting with remote servers for configuration and general usage. SSH keys provide a more secure way of logging into a server with SSH than using a password alone.

Here just a few easy steps to add a new key and use it.

Click on “SSH Keys” in the navbar,

Click on “New Key” to add a new SSH key,

Once the key is added, switch to the “VPS List” from the navbar,

Click on the “Manage” button beside the VPS you wish to manage,

Switch to the “Reinstall” tab and you can now select your SSH key,

Done!

bookmark_borderImprovements to Dark Mode in our Control Panel

Hello!

As part of our constant process of development and improvement of our in-house control panel, we decided to revisit one of the most subtle yet most “seen” feature, the dark mode theme.

Over the past weeks, we’ve had a look at the color palette used in our dark mode theme and found a couple of areas which we can improve on for a better user experience.

The first thing apparent to us was, how “bright” our text was, using #FFFFFF wasn’t the best idea here,

Super Bright Text (Old)

Going ahead with a lighter font was the solution to apply here, after which the text is far more easier on the eyes,

Not-So Super Bright Text (New)

Beyond the most apparent change with the font color, we’ve made some subtle changes around the control panel, including fixing a few lines of text to render clearly in dark-mode as well.

We hope the changes made reflect well on your end as well and give you a better experience in our control panel with the dark-mode theme.

As always, our support team is available and is always open for feedback and suggestions which we can incorporate into our control panel and services to further improve them for you! 🙂

Wishing you all the best for this year and stay tuned for more!
– Team CrownCloud.
