    I’ve installed Zentyal on VPS, but I can not login on the web portal (image above in the middle) using the password I typed during the installation. I tried the users root and admin too. Is there another password?

      In this case you need add “ebox” as group “adm”
      sudo usermod -a -G adm ebox
