SSL as per Wiki not working on Ubuntu, my solution provided
RE: SSL as per Wiki not working on Ubuntu, my solution provided
In few lines the best solution is:

1. create a new conf file that contain your SSL host that will look like this

Quote:<virtualhost *:443>
DocumentRoot "/var/zpanel/hostdata/zadmin/public_html/"
php_admin_value open_basedir "/var/zpanel/hostdata/zadmin/public_html/"
php_admin_value suhosin.executor.func.blacklist "passthru, show_source, shell_exec, system, pcntl_exec, popen, pclose, proc_open, proc_nice, proc_terminate, proc_get_status, proc_close, leak, apache_child_terminate, posix_kill, posix_mkfifo, posix_setpgid, posix_setsid, posix_setuid, escapeshellcmd, escapeshellarg, exec"
ErrorLog "/var/zpanel/logs/domains/zadmin/"
CustomLog "/var/zpanel/logs/domains/zadmin/" combined
CustomLog "/var/zpanel/logs/domains/zadmin/" common

DirectoryIndex index.html index.htm index.php index.asp index.aspx index.jsp index.jspa index.shtml index.shtm
SSLEngine On
SSLCertificateFile /var/zpanel/logs/domains/zadmin/ssl/secure1.pem
SSLCertificateKeyFile /var/zpanel/logs/domains/zadmin/ssl/secure1.key

All zpanel path's should be replaced by sentora.

You will need first to create a normal ( sub domain) could a be domain so replace with the correct URL you will use.

Notice the path for the SSL certificates that you can change.

Once you create this config file as place it in
/etc/zpanel/config/apache/ ( or /etc/sentora/ )

Then check your apache main config file & add include the new conf file you created.

Restart apache. If your SSL certficate is ok ( take care to remove the password or apache will request it after each restart), you should now have working & both pointing same root.

Then add a .htaccess to enforce https only if you need that or you can keep both working.

I think the old way in the wiki should not be used & hope in next release we auto generate the ssl host instead of having this manual setup. The wiki how to fail to explain the need for override. As once you enable ssl the default domain/subdomain with SSL will no longer work on HTTP & this is why you will be required to add a vhost port override to avoid nasty errors. My way will allow both SSL & non SSL working but require a lot more manual admin off panel.
