External Connectivity Check

When doing this External Connectivity Check, it comes with:
Website request failed,
500 Can’t connect to www.domain.com:80,
Make sure your system’s web server is running, that port 80 is not blocked by a firewall, and that the domain has a valid index page.

I wonder why that happens, port 80 is open, I can browse to my website, and when stopping the firewall CSF it still comes up with this Website request failed.

Kind regards


I suspect the issue is with the connectivity check moreso than with your sites. I’ll have Joe look into that.


Do you think moving the port from 10000 to another one is causing this issue?
Kind regards

I really need some help with this as I am having at same time trouble with my Let’s encrypt check, looking in the Apache error log I find this: - - [24/Nov/2018:16:03:59 +0000] “GET / HTTP/1.1” 301 235 “-” “Webmin” - - [24/Nov/2018:16:03:59 +0000] “\x16\x03\x01\x02” 400 226 “-” “-” - - [24/Nov/2018:16:04:00 +0000] “GET / HTTP/1.1” 301 236 “-” “Webmin” - - [24/Nov/2018:16:04:01 +0000] “GET / HTTP/1.1” 200 24096 “-” “Webmin”

What is your connectivity check expecting to find and at what location?

The Let’s encrypt error is this one, but I have no index.html, only the index.php file.

[Sat Nov 24 15:47:14.854011 2018] [negotiation:error] [pid 1462] [client] AH00687: Negotiation: discovered file(s) matching request: /home/user/public_html/index.html (None could be negotiated).


Well, let’s ignore the connectivity check ATM, as it can report false positives.

What problem is it that you’re experiencing exactly? What made you want to run that in the first place?

And no, changing the Webmin port shouldn’t cause an issue.

Note though that this is a holiday weekend in the US, so responses from us and other folks in the community may be slower.


Hi Eric,
sorry, didn’t know that as I live at the other side of the ocean :slight_smile:
The SSL issue let me do this connectivity check, I am searching high and low and only thing I found is something about MultiViews and since I have no index.html Multives might be the cause, but not sure if I break something as soon as I start to peek and poke around, enjoy your weekend.

Is this working for anyone else, don’t wanna spend another $60 to find out it’s a bug.
