Default Restarted Perfect System and Lost ISPConfig!

I had everything up and running, set up a domain and a site with db and got that up and running (had ispconfig setup on https). When I restarted the system, the address I was accessing ispconfig at was no longer there.

What might be the cause? Is there a service started in the installation that didn't get into init.d that I need to start manually. How is ISPConfig run. If this question is answered elsewhere, just point me where to look.

P.S. The FAQ is not accessible by anyone.

Lightbulb HTTPS Requires Manual Start?

Did locate ispconfig and found an entry in init.d


sudo /etc/init.d/ispconfig_server restart

And had to enter certificate passphrase to start the server.

This error means that you encrypted your keys. To fix this, create new SSL certificates as described here:


and make sure you select "n" in step 7 and 8 when you are asked if the keys shall be encrypted as described in the ISPConfig installation manual:

In step 7 ("Encrypting RSA private key of CA with a pass phrase for security [ca.key]")and step 8 ("Encrypting RSA private key of SERVER with a pass phrase for security [server.key]") of the certificate creation process you are asked if you want to encrypt the respective key now. Choose n there because otherwise you will always be asked for a password whenever you want to restart the ISPConfig system which means it cannot be restarted without human interaction!

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.
