    I'm using Ubuntu 8.10 and ISPConfig 2.2.30. It's already my second time install but I still can't open the ISPConfig in secure mode (HTTPS).
    The error is /root/ispconfig/httpd/bin/apachectl startssl: httpd could not be started
    I can start /root/ispconfig/httpd/bin/apachectl start: httpd started
    Can someone help me to point me how can I run the secure web ?

    To start ISPConfig run:

    /etc/init.d/ispconfig_server start

    do not use the apachectl script in /root/ispconfig/httpd/bin/ directly.

    Thanks for your reply.

    That's what I did
    and I got
    I choose HTTPS during setup

    I can run
    and successfully open, but some links are still pointing to HTTPS :confused:

    I believe if I run setup again and choose HTTP, there should be no problem. But I'd like to run in secure mode HTTPS.
    Please help me.

    Problem solved :)
    I follow instruction to re-generate the certificate.

    Btw, browser said the certificate is not trusted.
    Is there anyway I could make it certified without subscribe ?
    I just want to use only for local network only.

    In firefox you can import the certificate and the warning will go away then. Not sure if this is supported by Internet Explorer too.

    I am looking for these instructions and can not find them.
    Could you post the link?
