Virtualmin on regulat SSL port 443 - how


I want to be able to administer my virtualmin GPL (in emergencies) from a mobile phone browser. Snag is (at least here in NZ) that the variuous browsers wont accept a port number at all when using https. I have not yet tried a phone with opera or an Iphone.

Is there a way I can force Virtualmin to expose its interface on 443 (and remove the corresponding catchall in apache) so that this will work?

Is there any glaring disadvantage to this other than it being easier to find.

Is there another way to spoof this easily with the firewall/proxy

in Centos?

Well, if it's just that the browser doesn't allow you to enter the port -- you can always go to, and it would redirect to an address that uses the port.

If it won't work at all using a port other than 443 -- I believe that's what the Proxy Paths setting will help you accomplish.

In Services -> Proxy Paths, if you enter a local path, such as /admin/, and a remote URL, such as, I believe that will proxy your requests without showing the port. -Eric
