Cool Can't get control panel in browser

Firstly, congrats on a superb project and a superb "perfect guide for FC4".

I have successfully installed ISPConfig with no problems (using http:// for ISPConfig)
I have installed twice since, selecting the option to use the control panel through SSL (https://) and encountered the same problem.

Incidentally, the domain I have used is a FQDN but I am behind a router, as such I have a line in my hosts file which is: www.mydomain.com www mydomain.com

This line appears both on my FC4/ISPconfig server and my local client machine.

When I put http://mydomain.com:81/ into my browser, I get as expected:
Bad Request
Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand.
Reason: You're speaking plain HTTP to an SSL-enabled server port.
Instead use the HTTPS scheme to access this URL, please.

Hint: https://mydomain.com:81/

When I put https://mydomain.com:81 I get:

The page cannot be displayed

Any ideas ?

Just checked the logs and also tried to access the page using lynx on the server.
The logs show no requests from my machine using SSL, but shows http:// requests.
When using lynx it does the certificate thing and then goes to login.php, so obviously a network problem ?
Not sure what though !

Edit your host file and try the fallowing.

Code: www.mydomain.com mydomain.com
Also sometime, I have had to restart the compuer (where you edited the HOSTS file) to get https working.

I didn't manage to solve this but it was obviously a local dns prob in some way.
I have since installed ispconfig on a fresh server in a data centre and so far it's almost 100% fine !
Thanks for the reply though
