Creating default server from post installation wizard fails

I have just installed the latest version of Virtualmin (using install sh) on a new Ubuntu 18.04 server and was going through the post-installation wizard but when I reached the part where I have to create a default server, lets encrypt can’t seem to request the certificate (a self-signed certificate is added to the domain instead).

However, when I delete this default server and manually create a new virtual default server, it worked fine and the lets encrypt certificate was added successfully.

What could be the reason for this?

P.S. when I run the “re-check configuration”, everything passes.


I installed Virtualmin on another test server (Ubuntu 18.04) that I have just now and the default server set-up works fine on the post-installation wizard but the let’s encrypt certificate only works when i access DOMAIN:10000 but shows an ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR instead of the default Virtualmin Under Construction page when I try to go to the DOMAIN directly though. I then tried removing the default server created by the post-installation wizard and manually creating it like I did above and the default server is using the let’s encrypt certificate and working fine now.
