Hi,

 

I am currently having an issue with my Linux Server. I have installed webmin so I can create samba shares and everything but when I try to navigate to webmin via my browser it says:

 

"There is a problem with this website's security certificate.

The security certificate presented by this website is not secure.

Security certificate problems may indicate an attempt to fool you or intercept any data you send to the server."

 

I am unable to log in to finish configuring everything for my media server.

 

I have tried reinstalling webmin to the most updated version and rebooting the server with no avail.

I have also tried navigating to it via IP rather than hostname and get the same message.

 

Any suggestions?

 

EDIT: Also, if I try to navigate to the webmin panel using http instead of https it just gives a "Server not Found" or "Page cannot be Displayed" error.

Usually with certificate errors you have the choice of proceeding at your own risk.  Is this not a option?

Server not found indicates no web server is loaded.

Yes I am unable to take the option to proceed at my own risk. If it helps any I'm using firefox and IE to test it. I installed webmin and have it working in the past..

What flavor of Linux are you talking about? And have you looked in the Linux section of the forums for an answer? Because it seems to be a networking problem, it is in fact a problem on your server not giving the proper cert out.

I am using Ubuntu Server 14.04 LTS 64 bit. I haven't tried in the Linux section yet as it seemed to be more related to the web as you mentioned unless I'm missing something.

Looking at installing webmin it says "The first time you launch Webmin your browser will likely complain about the certificate for this site so just add the site as an exception, or choose "Continue to this website (not recommended)" to continue." For reference

Yeah but for some reason it hasn't been giving me that option. I will try again though and update you.

So after hooking it back up and trying again, I still was having the same issue and recalled that normally I get the option to continue in Chrome, and I was using firefox and Edge currently. I installed chrome and was able to log into Webmin fine. Thanks for the suggestions.
