    you can manually empty the fields in config xml for the time being. admin cp will be updated to allow reset in a bit.

    I have a new install running on Ubuntu 10.10.
    I accepted defaults during install.

    When I try to set up my first SSL listener it sees the cert file but on the key file it returns "*file /etc/ssl/private/server.key does not exist. Please create manually".

    In the server log it has the error:
    0#_AdminVHost] [STDERR] PHP Warning: is_file() [<a href=''></a>]: Stat failed for /etc/ssl/private/server.key (errno=13 - Permission denied) in /usr/local/lsws/admin/html.4.1.2/classes/ConfValidation.php on line 627

    I have not been able to figure out what/who access is getting denied.
    I compared permissions to the file to another server we have running and they look the same. I even added lsadm user to the root group (not sure that is a good idea).

    sudo ls -l /etc/ssl/private/server.key
    -rwxrwxr-- 1 root root 963 2011-07-28 16:49 /etc/ssl/private/server.key

    any thoughts?

    Well, I did a "chown -R lsadm:lsadm /etc/ssl/private" and that let me apply the key.

    But now I am getting:
    "[SSL] Config SSL Context with Certificate File: /etc/ssl/certs/server.crt and Key File:/etc/ssl/private/server.key get SSL error: error:0906406D:pEM routines:pEM_def_callback: problems getting password"


    "[config:server:listener:SSL] failed to start SSL listener on address!"

    You can make /etc/ssl/private/ world readable temporarily, after save the configuration, then lock down the permission.
    This issue will be addressed in next release 4.1.3 .

    You have to remove the passcode of the private key.
