Webmin - SSL received a record that exceeded the maximum permissible length.


I have a vps located remote and setup by others where I access webmin using https://myVPS.com:10000.

I assume that I am accessing port 10000 on my server which webmin listens to, but at the same time use ssl (which is port 443). Does this make any sense?

If it doesn't make sense, quit reading and tell me it doesn't make sense. If it does make sense, I have a physical server which I am trying to replicate.

I have Webmin working with http://192.168.0.100:10000/

I have https working at https://192.168.0.100/index.php

But https://192.168.0.100:10000 (or :80 or any port I think other than :443) gives me the following error:
Code:
Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to 192.168.0.100:10000.
SSL received a record that exceeded the maximum permissible length.
(Error code: ssl_error_rx_record_too_long)

The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem. Alternatively, use the command found in the help menu to report this broken site.
I am running CentOS 6.4, and installed Webmin, openssl, and apace using yum. I am not using a virtual Apache server.

Any recommendations? Thanks

Webmin runs as its own listening server on port 10000.

Ports 80 and 443 I would guess are being handled by apache.

A quick google shows these instructions for using SSL with webmin: http://www.webmin.com/ssl.html

Thanks TenTenths.

Your referenced link installs by source. While it is fun to do, the following will work as well. yum install openssl openssl-devel perl perl-Net-SSLeay perl-Crypt-SSLeay

Thanks again.
