Problem updating SSL-certs "system wide"

Hi. Just updated my certificate on my webserver (“”), but I’m not able to update the ceritificates for postfix, dovecot, usermin and webmin, “system wide”, as earlier. Before there was buttons, that did this process so I didnt have to copy/paste anything manually.

The buttons are exchanged with the text: This SSL certificate is already being used by : Postfix, Usermin, Webmin, Dovecot, but I know for sure that the new certificate isn’t the same as in either of the four mentioned. Have opened them and compared the contents.

How can I solve this? Is there a .cgi-script that I can run, or a command, through SSH.

Tried to activate SSL on another domain, and create a self-signed certificate. But the same happens; Virutalmin tells me that all four modules is using this certificate as well. How’s that possible?

See attached screenshot. (

Same problem here - couldn’t find any earlier reference so maybe this is recently broken?


Yeah, that could be a bug that you’re seeing. You may want to file a bug report using the Support link above. Jamie will then be able to work with you, and sort out what’s going on with the SSL copying.


Thx. Link to bug-rep.:

Copy cert and key to:

  • /etc/usermin/
  • /etc/webmin/
  • /etc/usermin/miniserv.conf
  • /etc/webmin/miniserv.conf
Look for:
  • keyfile=
  • certfile=
Change edit path and filenames

Restart usermin and webmin
