Hi Everyone,
I was able to login into webadmin with domain(domain-name:10000) and created user, changed the root password, and obtained a self-signed certificate(cert and key). I followed the path (/home/user/ssl.key/) fto the certificate and the instruction in this link,
https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-an-ssl-certificate-from-a-commercial-certificate-authority to install it (my certificate) on my server but it turned out that the installation did not work and I am unable to login into webadmin. Apache is running smoothly but my domain is not encrypted. When I try connecting to webadmin, I get htis error ’ We are having trouble finding that site’.
I also get this error when restarting webadmin
‘Failed to open SSL key /home/user/devparticle.key at /usr/share/webmin/miniserv.pl line 4434’.
Unfortunately, there’s no file in the user directory with name devparticle.key
I am a newbie and your help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Hey friend,

It sounds like you may be using a pre-made stack, which would not work well with steps that were designed for a custom built stack. When you say webadmin, what software are you referring to? Are you using a hosting control panel like cPanel, Plesk, or VestaCP?
