Problems with ebox web IU
Hi all,

My install of Ebox into intrepid Server went smoothly. I followed the first three chapters of the perfect server for 8.10 install. I had to use "deb intrepid main" for my repository.

My problems are with the interface. First off looks like I need php setup as no background is anywhere. Next I have this error that comes up between selectionson the ebox interface:


Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to

SSL received an unexpected Change Cipher Spec record.

(Error code: ssl_error_rx_unexpected_change_cipher)

The page you are trying to view can not be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.

    * Please contact the web site owners to inform them of this problem

Any Ideas?

This is small bug in client part of openssl and now is often visible in new Firefox 3
Simply disable TLS v1 in your server (SSHv2 too because of better security)

Insert this line into httpd.conf

SSLProtocol all -TLSv1 -SSHv2

Thanks for your response petter5,

But I am not running apache, therefore I have no httpd.conf.

This is a straight up file server I am setting up. Unless I need to setup apache/php to go with ebox.

The eBox interface is running on Apache2, so you must insert that code in the Apache2 configuration (should be in the /etc/apache2 directory).

Hi Falko,

If I understand you correctly, Ebox installs Apache2? Or do I have to install apache?

Yes, that's right.

I am trying to fiure out where the httpd.conf file is.

I open /etc/apache2/httpd.conf with nano and there is nothing existing in there.

I am trying to add the line into my httpd.conf file.

On Ubuntu, the main Apache configuration is in /etc/ apache2/apache2.conf. httpd.conf is there for backwards compliance and empty, but you add stuff to it (e.g. load modules, etc. - but you can as well do that in apache2.conf).

Hi Falko, Thanks for your response.

So I entered that line posted above to the bottom of the apache2.conf file,
and now apache won't restart.

It says that maybe a module is missing.
