Portal Login Explained
If you login to the portal website using your email address and account level password you can administer all your VPSs, change account details, place new orders etc.
If you login to the portal website using your VPS username and VPS password you will only have access to manage a single VPS, no mention of VPSBlocks is made, and no ability to modify your account or order services.
To add the backup service to your VPS
1. Go to https://portal.controlmyvps.com.au
2. Login using your email address and password
3. Click on 'Virtual Machines'
4. Click on 'Manage' next to the VPS in question
5. Click on the 'Backups' tab
6. Your current backups and the files sizes will be displayed
If you have only just added the backup service or only recently setup the VPS it may display a message telling you that you do not have managed backups. Please wait for up to three days for the first backup to occur. Once it has been taken the control panel will display your backups correctly.
