Server checks

To get an overview of the state of your server you can either click the Check Server button for all checks or you can run each check individually by clicking on the Check now button:

Server checks

When you run the checks Ops Center shows you for each check what it was doing, what the result was and what you should do to fix the problem:

Checking server

You might be surprised that some checks have been performed already. This is because Ops Center runs periodically in the background all the jobs. So it might have happened Ops Center was faster than you checking the server...

Information: Ops Center uses ssh to access the database servers. To allow this your web server user (apache or www-data) must have a valid shell. To allow Ops Center to connect to the database servers without a password prompt the public key of the Ops Center user has to be copied manually the first time to the database server.
