Strange redirect


#1

I successfully installed easy engine on digital ocean a few days ago and just now got through the process on a linode server. Was mostly the same, but something new has appeared and I’m a little bit at a loss as to why this happened.

When I did this on digitalocean I was still able to access the tools under 22222 using the IP address, i.e. http://50.116.48.102:22222

But on the linode server, the strange thing is that it redirects to my domain and tries to access the signup page:

This is completely bizarre because I haven’t done any nameserver changes or A records with my registrar yet. Can’t for the life of me figure out how this is happening. Have any ideas?

Hmm… maybe something in the installation failed as I just saw these errors running the debug command:

ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user ‘root’@‘localhost’ (using password: NO)
Setup MySQL slow log, please wait…
ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user ‘root’@‘localhost’ (using password: NO)
[ Mon Jul 28 13:50:23 EDT 2014 ] Unable to setup slow_query_log, exit status = 1

Heard back from Linode and they said I needed to open up port 22222. Have done that but still not having any luck. Will report back if I find out anything.

Woohoo! After enabling the port and activating the firewall rules I got access to the admin tools!

RESOLVED!
