    Well i remembered that i was playing around with ssl certificates yesterday so i deleted the certificate and now everything seems to work!!!

    But why does that happened? it completely messed up the entire Ispconfig hosts! :confused:

    What exactly did you do before this happened?

    I was trying one of those free web certificates for one domain i host. I tried a couple of certificates, and by mistake has i wanted to delete the certificate, i end up deleting the complete site with the delete tab.

    I recovered the entire site from recycle bin, changed file permissions to its defaults and went to bed forgetting the ssl certificate installed.

    The next day i did a backup image from the entire server with Acronis True Image Linux Agent(sorry about the advertisement) , like always before i update Ispconfig. I rebooted the server and kabummmm!!!!

    I first thought that the image was corrupted since i use 2 different hdds, and tried to boot from the original one, and same error. Then i remembered about the ssl certificates from last night, deleted them and light was made!

    Thats what i did!

    So you install a cert, and then accidentally deleted the site? How did you install the cert?

    Through Ispconfig ssl create certificate. Created a request uploaded it to Startcom Free SSl, and copied/pasted the certificate into Ispconfig SSL certificate tab. Terminated with save action.

    Or do you mean how did i install the certificate after i deleted the site? If so, I didn't.
    happy carnival... sorry, easter!

    And did it work then (before you deleted the site)?
