ZPanel will be available on HTTP port 80 by default. Open your favourite browser and navigate to http://yourdomain.com or http://server-ip and use zadmin as username and use generated password to log in. Once logged in, you can then change default generated password to something easier to remember but make sure it still uses a strong combination.
