Fresh install core 170 error no server.crt so cannot access webui

My IPFire went wonky today so I performed a fresh install.

After a fresh install I am now getting the error AH00526: Syntax error on line 18 of /etc/httpd/conf/vhosts.d/ipfire-interface-ssl.conf: SSLCertificateFile: file ‘/etc/httpd/server.crt’ does not exist or is empty

I cannot access the web interface now. It appears to be working well otherwise. How can I fix this?

If you are really sure that nothing else went wrong when installing then you can create a new SSL certificate for IPFire see wiki link below.

However something serious must have gone wrong during the installation to not have the server.crt file present so my preference would be to re-try the installation again.

The above link will remake all the required files for the SSL certificate. Was it just the server.crt file that is missing from /etc/httpd/ or are the server./key, server.csr, server-ecdsa.crt, server-ecdsa.key and server-ecdsa.csr also missing because that would indicate a whole section of the installation routine either didn’t happen or went wrong for some reason.


I’ll re-download the img file and re-install again. It appears to be missing everything so a bad install.
