    Dear Staff,

    I just installed ISPConfig and I'm very happy with it; only one question, please: during installation I selected to access panel via HTTP.

    Is there a way to change this setting and choose HTTPS, please ?

    Thanks,
    Best Regards
    Mark

    You can change this, but its a bit complicated as you have to install an other httpd.conf that is in the installer tar.gz package and change several config files. The easier way will be (if you have not setup some sites yet) to uninstall ISPConfig and reinstall it with https.

    From http to https:


    1) Copy file httpd.conf_https from the Tarball to filefolder /root/ispconfig/httpd/conf

    2) Make a copy of the existing httpd.conf file !

    3) Rename httpd.conf_https to httpd.conf

    4) Open the new httpd.conf and replace {SERVER_NAME} with the server name
    (have a look at the backed-up httpd.conf to find out the correct value)

    5) Open /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/lib/config.inc.php and change the ISPConfig URL from http to https.

    6) Finally restart ISPConfig: /etc/init.d/ispconfig_server restart

    6) Finally restart ISPConfig: /etc/init.d/ispconfig_server restart

    But be careful !
