Ok I installed web2py on my webfaction account following the instructions here: is-there-going-to-be-a-one-click-installer-for-web2py-anytime-soon

Now how do I access the admin? I see that I can setup the site as https but I'm thinking it might be more secure to access it through ssh as described here: How to remotely administer Web2Py

I tried following those directions but my browser just says: Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at localhost:8001.

How can I get this working?

Did you open a connection to the post assigned to your app or to 8000 as listed on the above page?

You can follow: http://docs.webfaction.com/user-guide/databases.html#starting-an-ssh-tunnel-with-putty

to set this up both for your app and the database.

Also, we do serve a default certificate over HTTPS, so aside from a certificate warning which you would get, the HTTPS connection would be just as secure.

Hope that helps!

ah thanks I guess I was thinking ssh would be more secure (mostly because it's less publicly exposed). But I think I'll try the https way
