Failed to open SSL Key

Hi there. I have just installed a lot of updates and part of this must have restarted webmin.

Now I can't connect via a browser.

Also, if I try to start via SSH I get the following:

Failed to Open SSL Key /home/virtualserver/ssl.key at /usr/libexec/webmin/ line 4405.

How can I solve this?

Thanks in advance! Craig

Just a quick update, I think this is some bad config somewhere.

The directory name where I've put virtualserver doesn't actually exist. The domain was updated and I changed the home folder, so I need to update this somewhere I think.

Can anyone help?

Thanks, Craig

I'm also getting this error on CentOS 7 after performing the latest update. It tells me that the file /home/user/ssl.cert is missing.

I have checked the directory and the file is not there although there are some new files such as ssl.combined and ssl.everything.

I got around this by restoring a backup from earlier and this allows webmin to restart. However there appear to be other problems now (Dovecot not starting, Apache not starting) that I assume stem from this issue.

Running apachectl configtest tell me that "SuexecUserGroup configured, but suEXEC is disabled: Invalid owner or file mode for /usr/sbin/suexec".

Totally confused here, hoping I'm affected by the same issue and there's a fix.
