    When I type /etc/init.d/apache2 restart in the shell as root I get
    Code:

    Clearly apache2 is indeed running. So why is it lieing to me? Why does it say it's not running? Is it looking at the wrong pid? Why would it do that? Should I try restarting the whole system?

    Which distribution do you use?

    Did you try
    Code:
    /etc/init.d/apache2 stop
    to stop it? If it doesn't help, try
    Code:
    kill -9 [I]pid[/I]
    where pid is the process ID that you see in the netstat output. Also check Apache's error log for errors.

    Hmm, these errors are all non critical:

    Please try:

    /etc/init.d/apache restart
    /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
    /etc/init.d/httpd restart

    Only one of the lines is correct, but this depends on your linux distribution. But it does not hurt if you execute all three lines, for 2 of them you will get file not found errors.

    will try this again although i have tried several times...

    notice this in the SSL log...

    [Tue Feb 27 02:08:26 2007] [warn] RSA server certificate CommonName (CN) `localhost.localdomain' does NOT match server name!?


    makes http:// work properly... but https:// login doesnt work

    however,

    makes SSL login work properly on https:// and http:// works, but instead of showing the website, it redirects to a login.php file...

    !??!

    always results in [FAILED]

    It seems as if ISPConfig is listening on port 81 instead of 80. Did you modify anything in /root/ispconfig/httpd/conf/httpd.conf?
