Admin website will not go to https

**OS type and version:Ubuntu 20.4
**Webmin version:1.981
**Virtualmin version: 6.17-3 Pro

I have a LE Cert and it works for all the websites but I can’t seem to get rid of this error on the primary domain:


This web server is running in SSL mode. Try the URL instead.

That’s not an error you want to get rid of. You’re trying to connect to http instead of https. You should connect to https.

If you get an error when connecting to https, tell us that error.

Isn’t it suppose to auto redirect to https? I guess I used the wrong terminology in the title,
I can’t seem to get the auto redirect to work on my paid version. It works fine on a different server with the free version

Nope. It gives a link to the right URL. If that link isn’t right, then it needs to be configured to know the right hostname.

Hm…it doesn’t default to auto-redirecting. Maybe there is a config option for it, if you’ve seen it behave that way elsewhere. I’ll look around…

Yep, it’s configurable: Webmin->Webmin->Webmin Configuration->SSL Configuration->Redirect non-SSL requests to SSL mode?

Thanks Joe, I knew there was a second place to check mark it. I had done so for the website configurations but couldn’t find the one you mentioned.

Thanks again!!
