www and http not working


I have installed iRedmail successfully using the above tutorial. The SSL that InstantSSL provides is a 90 days free trial. After that we have to pay. So I avoided “Step 4 - Add SSL Certificate” in the above tutorial.

Now I have 2 weird problems:

  1. I am not able to use www with my domain name in the browser or in the ping. shows “Server not found”. Ping works only without www.

  2. I am not able to use http, but https works. works fine, but shows “Not Found” page.

Could you please help me to understand what went wrong ?

To help others with the similar issue with www not working: <br> <br>I have resolved this issue by adding a CNAME Record alias. <br>Name: www <br>Hostname: @ <br> <br>I think the is fine. Secure connection, Better that http. So I will temporarily stick with that. But I didn’t buy an SSL certificate though and currently using a self-generated certificate.

I’m having a similar problem. iRedmail is installed and working, but only accessible on the IP address of the server via https:// if I try and access it via the domain on https:// I get 500 error.
