    I am new to this forum, but it helped me a lot with my own server configuration.
    But I haven't found a solution to my problem:

    I bought an SSL Cert (AlpiroSSL) for my domain, successfully installed it and it is working on my domain e.g.
    But now I am not able to access my ISPConfig Admin on I have to change ispconfig.vhost from <VirtualHost *:8080> to <VirtualHost *:443> - then I can access ISP Admin ( , however, my website "goes down" with "NET::ERR_CERT_AUTHORITY_INVALID"
    I am not sure how to config apache to access both sites, the best option will be like: = ISPConfig Admin (or something similar, I think additional Len's Crypt SLL will be necessary...) = my website

    //Also I am using HSTS - maybe this is the issue?

    I understand that with port change (8080→443) I am "stealing" HTTPS traffic from my main website ( and therefore is not accessible. I hope there is a proper solution to this.

    Could you help me, please? :)

    Did you add the cert to the ispconfig-vhost? You can store the cert and key into the files in /usr/local/ispconfig/interface/ssl

    Hi, now I did. Rebooted apache2. But with no result.
    Which port should I use to access ISPConfig Admin now? Should I change IP/port settings in isp-config.vhost?

    w/o https I got ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT, which is understandable

    Thank you :)

    //I did it like:

    # SSL Configuration
    SSLEngine On
    SSLCertificateFile /usr/local/ispconfig/interface/ssl/myPurchasedCert.crt
    SSLCertificateKeyFile /usr/local/ispconfig/interface/ssl/myGenerated.key
    ## must be re-added after an ISPConfig update!!!
    SSLCertificateChainFile /usr/local/ispconfig/interface/ssl/myPurchasedIntermediate.crt

    You have to set a servername in the ispconfig vhost when you want to use it beside your website on the same port.
