Every few minutes one particular error message is written out to /var/webmin/miniserv.error. The message is:
[31/Jan/2013:00:47:24 +0000] [126.96.36.199] Bad Request : This web server is running in SSL mode. Try the URL https://fqdn:10000/ instead.
(The error message actually shows my fqdn in full but it seemed like a good idea not to leave that visible in this post.)
I have tried the suggestion in the error message, which means I can access my Virtualmin setup with either of the following:
Whichever I use has no effect on stopping the errors; the log file continues to get swamped with the same message over and over. In less than a week the log file has accumulated 2,023 entries and over 98% of them comprise this message.
The only option I can remember when first installing Virtualmin was a choice to use https or not to access my installation. I chose yes. Is there something else I should have done besides?
Or in short, what can I do to stop the generation of these messages (I think created by miniserv.pl)?
