http to https..for dummies..
can someone explain this in simpleton speak for me.. let me explain.. number 1 says.. Copy file httpd.conf_https from the Tarball? uh.. that step would be great..lets start with where do I get the httpd.conf_https and with what command? and then.. whats a tarball?.. follow how much i need this explained? I just have no idea.. if someone could explain each step.. and thanks so much.. I gotta say I have learned A TON! here.. I would just reinstall it but I cant access it the https way on install because it wont take the ip only.. the name .. boon-whatever only works after i set the a records.. anyway if someone could give me a step by step that would be great.

1) Copy file httpd.conf_https from the Tarball to filefolder /root/ispconfig/httpd/conf

2) Make a copy of the existing httpd.conf file !

3) Rename httpd.conf_https to httpd.conf

4) Open the new httpd.conf and replace {SERVER_NAME} with the server name
(have a look at the backed-up httpd.conf to find out the correct value)

5) Open /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/lib/ and change the ISPConfig URL from http to https.

6) Finally restart ISPConfig: /etc/init.d/ispconfig_server restart

A Tarball is another name for a Tar file, which is an archive, like a Zip file but for Linux.

You would have needed to download a tar file, then extract it, then find the file inside it and copy it.

use the wget command to download the tar file. I forget how to extract the tar file, if you already downloaded the tar file and you cant find it, use the command "find -name nameoftarfile.tar.gz"

I suggest you look up the commands so you can learn how to copy, move and rename

It's in the ISPConfig sources. For example, when you download ISPConfig-2.2.5.tar.gz, this file is a tarball. You can unpack it like this:

tar xvfz ISPConfig-2.2.5.tar.gz
Then, in install_ispconfig/compile_aps, you find the file httpd.conf_https.

Have a look here to get started on the command line:
