Running Ajenti

Starting service

Ajenti provides binary ajenti-panel and initscript/job/unit ajenti. You can ensure the service is running:

service ajenti restart


/etc/init.d/ajenti restart


systemctl restart ajenti

The panel will be available on HTTPS port 8000 by default. The default username is root, and the password is your system’s root password.

Ajenti can also be run in a verbose debug mode:

ajenti-panel -v

Commandline options

  • -c, --config <file> - Use given config file instead of default
  • -v - Debug/verbose logging
  • --dev - Enables automatic resources build on each request
  • -d, --daemon - Run in background (daemon mode)
  • --autologin - Will automatically log in the user under which the panel runs. This is a security issue if your system is public.


Ajenti logs into /var/log/ajenti/ajenti.log.

Running ajenti with -v enables additional logging.
