I can no longer access Smoothwall admin GUI (https port 441, or http port81)

Hi. After a power cut (caused by a fairly substantial earthquake over here in little 'ol NewZealand) I needed to restart my Smoothwall 3 box. Things are working fine, except I can no longer access the GUI to open ports etc. I get a "(111) Connection refused". I would just reinstall, except my kids have opened up a number of ports over the last few months for games but without keeping a record, and would struggle to have to start from scratch again.

Any ideas how I can solve the "refused connection" issue,
or alternatively, do you know which file on the box stores the port config info so I can take a copy of it before reinstalling.

I have looked at /var/log/dmesg and notice I get a "segmentation fault" for the line /usr/apache2/sbin/httpd -DSSL and am guessing this is significant to the problem, but I don't really know what it means or how to fix it. I have rebooted several times, over several days.

All solved (phew). Turns out the power cut was irrelevant. Problem actually due to applying update7. Found solution at community.smoothwall. It is, delete the ssl_cache.* files in /var/log/httpd, and reboot.
