    Can't get cgi-bin to work with https!

    This is a bit of an emergency for me. I have a site with cgi enabled, but when I try to access any of the scripts with https, I get back a 404 not found error. They show up correctly if I access with http. Please advise.

    1) Which ISPConfig version?
    2) Do other pages of this site show up correctly with https?

    Also.. Are you pointing to the correct cgi-bin directory?

    On ISPconfig 2x you will need to point it to /cgi-bin/ , and not cgi-bin/
    The cgi-bin directory is NOT within the "web" directory!

    No, other pages did not. I've actually just (literally the same time Thunderbird popped up to notify me of a reply) got it to work ... half way. I seem to have used the SSL feature incorrectly ...

    We are moving a domain from one host to another, and we need to take the certificate with us (or is that not possible?), so I had originally copied the Request and Certificate texts and pasted them into ISPConfig, also carefully inputing the same info for country, province, company name, etc. Then I chose Action "Save Certificate" and clicked save. Obviously, that didn't work.

    However, just now, I tried inputing only the Request from the old server, company name, etc, but not the Certificate. I then chose "Create Certficate" and it generated a certficate. I then replaced that Certificate with the original from our old server, and now I can access the files via https, however, it states that the certificate is not valid. I am confused about all this, and wondering what I might be doing wrong?

    Edit: I'm not really sure what version it is. I'm not sure where that information is displayed. It should be rather recent, as it was just installed by our host.
