Thanks for all your responses guys ... I really appreciate it,
It seemed that the Web Server was stopped, so after manually starting it, my default website was working again.
This time with a secure connection as you can see in the picture.
I still need to recreate the certificate to make sure that when someone types www, it still works.
Can someone please advice on what other things I need to prepare for when doing this, so I don't have to redo this several times ... ?!?
I would additionally like to ask how to setup my Web Server so that it always goes to https ... even when not typed by the user.
Closing port 80 is not enough ... or is that a bad idea ... ?!?
For the rest I could not really understand the stuff you where talking about ... not sure if it's a good idea to start fooling around with the command line if I don't understand what I am doing.
Please don't be offended, but especially when you guys contradict each other.
I will have to delete and recreate the certificate, because I don't know how to edit it.
Yesterday I was still able to access the default web page from my LAN ... I don't know what changed that could have affected that.
I am also new to Serviio, so I will ask around on their forum if they can enlighten me about certificates, but I doubt that they know anything about it.
I was able to partially use my new certificate for the webconfig.
With Tor I have a green lock, but with FireFox I get a grey lock (both report a secure connection).
This happens when I use https://<domain.com>:81 (see pictures)
When I type www.<domain.com>:81" target="_blank">https://www.<domain.com>:81 I still get a warning from my browser.
I don't know why this happens, because I have an A & AAAA record for <domain.com>, www.<domain.com> and for *.<domain.com>
For unknown reasons I was unable to access the default website at http:// & https://.
I closed port 80, because it does not seem to work at all.
Yesterday i was able to access the default web page.
The Media Browser from Serviio works (not the certificate), but I do not know where to start adding the certificate to it.
The only place in the webconfig that I could find it is for the Web Flexshare that I use for the Serviio Media Browser, but that does not work.
I tried reading your HowTo, but that was way too complicated for it to make any sense to me.
I successfully created a certificate with Let's Encrypt.
This is for a new domain, so I first had to change the AAAA records by adding the IPv6 value to it.
I generated this with an IPv4 to IPv6 conversion tool.
After this, no errors where reported by Let's Encrypt.
When I view the details of this certificate I see that it is deployed, but not in use (see picture).
I was unable to find how to start using it with the Certificate Manager.
I searched clearos.com for the howto's, but I was unable to find them.
All I found was this link, but that's way too complicated for me.
When I view the Default Certificate in the Certificate Manager, I see that it's deployed (see picture).
I can only add External Certificates, but AFAIK that is something different.
The reason I would like a self signed certificate is, because I want to remove the warning message from my COS box (website & webconfig), including for the mediabrowser for Serviio.
I don't know where to start, but this is a problem that I really want to fix.
I have 2 Plex servers running ... one on my Win10 media-center and one on my COS box (Gateway).
I used to be able to connect to both of them from my LAN, but since I reinstalled my COS box I am unable to connect to it.
The COS box server does not even appear after showing an error about that it is currently unavailable.
The Plex service on my COS box is running and I only opened a port for it so I can attempt to access it from outside of my network.
I am afraid to remove the media-center Plex server, because at least that one is still working.
When I attempt to follow these instructions, I get stuck at the first option.
Ps. please don't tell me to check the logs or something, because I would not know how to do that.
I did not know where to post this, so I posted it here.
This problem started a while back with my previous setup running COS 7.8.1 and I hoped that with upgrading my hard disks and a clean install that it would be solved, but it didn't.
Sometimes I have too repeatedly reboot, because it gives me the following error when I boot up with the latest default kernel:
Because of this I cannot reboot my box remotely or when I need to go somewhere, I don't always have the time to boot it at all.
I usually shutdown my COS box when I go to sleep, but because of this I leave it running all night, so I don't have to bother booting it up several times in the morning.
Because I use a fake RAID1, I was required to install COS 7.1, because that's the latest version (that I have) that still supports my fake RAID1.
The only older kernel that I can choose from is from 7.1, but this kernel has the same problem and I do not like to use kernels this old.
Ps. Or do I have to install another kernel and set it as default ... ?!?
If this is the case, can someone please tell me how to do that ... and where to find the latest kernel that does not have this problem ... ?!?
I just reinstalled my gateway COS box (7.1), but whenever I try to register from a client, nothing happens.
After I attempted to register, when I attempt to connect to the webconfig I get a white screen ... also on my COS box and I only see a mouse, but no Interface or login screen.
Rebooting the COS box does not solve the problem ... also when choosing an older kernel.
I can ping my COS box and I do have Internet access from my clients, but I cannot update or do anything.
Earlier I was able to register, upgrade, install etc, but now I attempted reinstalling for the 5th time ... without success.
After I reinstalled ClearOS 7.8.1 and restored the settings, I encountered the following problem:
Before I even started the Serviio service I attempted to update it to 2.1.
During the install the service started without me doing anything.
It stopped again by itself and it won't start again.
I uninstalled Serviio with the webconfig and reinstalled the original 1.8 version.
When I attempt to start it stops automatically.
