I dont know if thats related, but while I was taking snapshot I accidentally navigated away from page, but I went back and pressed take snapshot, it said another task in process. I have SSL too (common name: but it was working fine before reboot my environment: ubuntu 14.04 apache2 thanks,

Check your apache error log to see what is happing :)
ok now it works!

for future reference, my mistake was not saving iptables after making a rule that open port https.

on reboot https rule was gone.. and we can never stop learning :)
