HI, am coming from cPanel and someone suggested I switch to VM…
moved 2 cpanel-backups so far (websites
I cannot make any of them work
seems I cannot activate SSL, get this error message:
" Error ### Invalid SSL certificate : Certificate is for *.myXXXX.is, not XXXthefield.com. Certificate is for myXXX.is, not XXXthefield.com."
It looks like it treies to use another certificate for this website?? I have no idea how to solve this, has somebody an idea??
website shows " Service Unavailable - The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later."
Hello @skywalker89 and welcome to the community. Please proceed in the order outlined below:
The ‘maintenance downtime or capacity problems’ issue can often be addressed by a two step procedure. First step: Virtualmin -> Server Configuration -> Website Options and in ‘PHP script execution mode’ change to an option other than the one that is selected and hit Save. Second step: change it back again. Visit your website now, it should work!
For the SSL issue with the two websites that you have migrated over to Virtualmin from cPanel, you could work around these by regenerating the SSL certificate for the respective domains. You must use Virtualmin to generate the SSL certificates via Let’s Encrypt. This is done via Virtualmin -> Server Configuration -> SSL Certificate; then under the Let’s Encrypt tab, Generate Certificate.
If you don’t see the SSL Certificate option under Server Configuration then read on: in Virtualmin -> Edit Virtual Server under Enabled Features check the box next to ‘Apache SSL website enabled’. Hit Save and then read this para again. By getting Virtualmin to generate a free SSL certificate from Letsencrypt, you have overwritten whatever certificates that you were using on cPanel with working SSL certificates generated via Virtualmin that you could use temporarily or even permanently.
about my second issue above, tried your instructions, I have 2 php versions /7.3 and 7.4) installed but cannot switch between these (should I be able to?), so I switched to “allow server side includes”, but whenever I hit “SAVE” a new browser tab opens with the known
" Service Unavailable
The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later."
BUT: with FTP I found that Virtualmin has given strange Username to many files on Virtual server!
I chowned them to owner of that virtual server, then reset permissions as you have shown me above and then reedited server woth check to “SSL” and saved . and voila!!! it seems to have no issues anymore about SSL … I found a new issue with wordpress and mysql, but will open another thread for that!
