    Using cloudflare so 8080 is not supported via https.

    only others like 8443
    changed in config then ran update again just to be sure..
    now Panel is not loading - even regenerated the SSL just in case
    inside the firewall local to server unable to load https://IP:8443
    reloaded apache but is it actually an nginx? doesn't look like it:
    considering just doing a NAT Translation at the firewall to convert 8443 > 8080.
    Change vhosts back to 8080 works - just checking why 8443 acts like its already in use?!?

    --- Side bar ---
    is there a way / script / addon that will proxy admin/panel url to the correct port from an http request?

    another panel i'm using does this via a proxy - type and it redirects via proxy to correct path and port - while still showing only
    just a thought - but I have no idea how they did that - know its a plugin though.

    used the network firewall to proxy/translate 8443 > 8080
    works but odd that something else is using 8443?
    didn't check netstat but figured I'd post my config with cloudflare incase others ran across it.

    other panel I use is
    specifically the panel redirect plugin:
    really both packages are well maintained and both are awesome!
    thx for all the work that goes into the testing / development!

    It probably is, you can try `lsof -i :8443` to see what process has that port open.

    You can do that in the web server; I could send an apache example (or you could find it by searching past posts here), but if I understood your first post correctly you're using nginx, so that won't help.

    nginx - that was the other panel not ispconfig31 (got confused)
    I thought ispconfig also used nginx - which it doesn't - so Un-related.

    lsof -i :8443 - shows nothing - so not sure what I did wrong...

    editing /etc/apache2/sites-available/ispconfig.vhost
    didn't help either...
    Not sure what I messed up!
    beyond that its running fine doing a firewall listen on 8443 and translating to 8080 internally. just odd I couldn't change.
