I have a need to add a SSL cert to one of the sites I am hosting.
So, I took a look around and tried to follow the Step by Step Tutorials “How to add an SSL certificate” (https://www.virtualmin.com/documentation/tutorial/how-to-add-an-ssl-certificate) and failed miserably.
I have a second IP number supplied and I assumed that it would be added in step 5 of the tutorial but step 4 says “Click the radio button next to Virtual interface labeled Create now with IP” but I can’t find that.
Does the IP number have to be added somewhere else before this option becomes available or am I missing somethng?
Please feel free to tell me I am being dumb, I am accustomed to it.
Thanks for any help you can offer.
Operating system CentOS Linux 5.5, Webmin version 1.520 , Virtualmin version 3.81 Pro
I think the function that the tutorial refers to is the one that has been moved to a different location with the VMin update 3.81. Changing IP addresses is now done under “Server Configuration / Change IP address”.
So, no, you are not dumb (if at all, then you didn’t read through the release notes of the 3.81 version ), but the tutorial is not yet up-to-date.
I just tried it. You can enter the desired new IP address in the “Use private IP address” field. If it belongs to a virtual eth that is already created (e.g. using the Networking Webmin module), you need to check “Already active”.
If you leave that unchecked, VMin will auto-create the virtual eth for you (and auto-delete it when you change the IP address back later).
Many thanks Locutus, that worked a treat, and so easy. Thanks also to VM for making it so easy.
Now to get the cert under way.
You’re welcome! And I agree about VM!
