GUI over HTTPS with hiccups & errors

  • Hi all,

    I can’t get to the GUI over HTTPS.

    Tried some browsers and even with add-ons (https-everywhere etc.) they won’t create a secure connection.

    OMV doesn’t seem to provide it.

    What I did:

    Activated: „enable SSL/TLS“ and it requires to name a certificate so...

    Created a SSL certificate under system->certificates->SSL;

    Back to system->general settings->secure connection: named the just created certificate, save, apply.

    Left out „force SSL/TLS“ because I assume that this locked me out last time and I went for a re-install (which was faster);

    So tried port 443 (left unchanged) and don’t get a connection. It jumps back to HTTP on port 80

    Happy to try to activate the force option again but then... where can I find the config file to reverse this via command line?

    nmap returns (amongst others):


    443/tcp open https


    Did I miss something?

  • Update on this:

    Yes I can get the GUI via https now. But with two "hiccups":

    1. One can still use https on port 80 for a plain user, not for admin login.

    2. I cannot force a secure connection. If I activate this option, I get a long error message. The one that I filtered out were the ones listed below.

    Could anyone interpret these perhaps?
