F28 server cockpit not working


Recommended Posts

So I have a fresh install of Fedora 28 Server Edition and the first thing I tried to do was start cockpit, and I got this massege:


Failed to start cockpit.service: Unit cockpit.service not found.

Google gives me no results over this error (?)

Is cockpit installed by default? If yes,You want a service and a socket:

systemctl enable cockpit.socket
systemctl enable cockpit
systemctl start cockpit

systemctl defaults to service, if "extension" isn't provided. More details are here: https://cockpit-project.org/running#fedora

Next You'll have to add rules to your firewall. If You are using iptables, I strongly encourage to specify ip, or ip range of permitted clients. If You prefer firewalld, specify zone when opening ports.
