    Hello sports,
    need help:( I insalled ISPConfig on SUSE 9.3. Done some configuration work and server was running for couple of days. I did install some other software (which doesn't interfere with ISPConfig) and rebooted the server. After that web interface is unreachable - https://xxxx:81 doesn't answer. What did i do wrong? I did install web calendar on the server and still can reach it under https://xxxx:81/webcalendar. SSH works as well...

    Check if ISPConfig is running (with
    ps aux
    netstat -tap
    ). If it does not, start it manually:

    /etc/init.d/ispconfig start
    You might want to run
    chkconfig --add ispconfig_server
    so that the system startup links for ISPconfig are created.

    I did what you said:
    1. ps aux showed that there was something ispconfig like running (sorry didn't remember the name properly)
    2. netstat -tap didn't show anything with ispconfig
    After I did start the service manually i dit this as well
    chkconfig --add ispconfig_server
    and restarted the server just for the sake of test. It did work... I could see that the service was running but I couldn't get the web interface again. IE doesn't show any error just shows the normal server not found page. Though Firefox gives the following message:
    No secure connection could be established because server.name.org sends not valid or broken certificate. Error-Code is: -8182
    I remember doing this
    chkconfig --add ispconfig_server
    during the installation. It is weird that it didn't started automatically after the first reboot.
    the server.

    case of using https access with DSA certificates

    spent a lot of time figuring out how to cure this. During setup I chose the DSA certificate options, gave the proper local name (domainname.com format without www.) and setup concluded successfully; however port 81 gave no response.
    Cure: modify //root/ispconfig/httpd/conf/httpd.conf such that the line
    SSLCertificateFile points at .../ssl.crt/snakeoil-dsa.crt and
    SSLCertificateKeyFile points at .../ssl.key/snakeoil-dsa.key and
    SSLCertificateChainFile points at .../ssl.crt/snakeoil-ca-dsa.crt

    Then restart ispconfig: service ispconfig_server restart

    Apparently the setup script does not perform these adaptations automatically and/or properly in reaction to the DSA encryption choice.
