    As @till said. Though you should be able to test your web server (e.g. nginx -t for nginx web server) and delete the web sites vhost that caused error for your web server to restart from sites-enabled folder.

    He removed the ISPConfig cert, so he would remove ISPConfig vhost by doing this. I wonder why he did not got a new cert by using the ispconfig update. @comsupany What you can try is to remove the symlinks to the SSL cert in /usr/local/ispconfig/interface/ssl/ and rerun the ISPConfig update.
