Strange redirect

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.

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!
