First Rule: Virtualmin is always right
Second Rule: If (you think that) Virtualmin is wrong read First Rule.
Virtualmin was ok; it was my sister who modified miniserv.conf port from 10000 to 443

I’m glad you figured that out! That would have been a tricky one to troubleshoot :slight_smile:

Have a good weekend!


Believing in Virtualmins’ professionalism saves newbie’s time and pain, early.
