Change host name gets you self signed
« on: August 06, 2021, 02:17:07 PM »
So I installed a fresh version of cwp.  Everything went ok. 

I created a new hostname and got a good ssl cert.   At some point, for whatever reason, I clicked on change hostname, but left the hostname unchanged.  Got the usual hostname successfully changed message.   But the server created a self signed cert.  This was maddening to figure out.   So I have learned not to change the hostname to the same host name.
Listen to everything Pixelpadre says.

Ah... don't feel bad, I did the same thing a while back... what a nightmare!!! I tried so many things, I am going to be honest with I am not sure exactly what actually works, but if I remember correctly, I changed the host name to something else, then waited a day or so and then changed it back.

I believe I also had to go through and rebuild each and every domain that I had installed! 

Not good times, wish I could forget that little episode! But on the bright side, once I got the server all ironed out, my server is just working beautifully now, email server is perfect, and websites are crazy fast.
