    No, it does not seem to be so. I have no problem accessing my control panel at https://example.com:8080. Also, I do not have any problems that I know of, I just don't even know what this warning even means, or how to go about seeing if I need to fix it. And I am not hosting this server at home, it's in a data center.

    If you can access your server from outside, I think you can safely ignore this warning, it just means your server is connected to the network in an unusual way

    What is the output of the command ifconfig
    And do you have the hostname entered in the hostfile etc?

    nothing to worry about here.
    I guess the htf-common-issues.php script should be updated to take virtual environments into account as they are quite common these days
