    Since i have WHM 11.42.1 (build 5) version, https://webmail.domain.com gives me ssl error :
    Codice di errore: ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR

    Try domain.com/webmail instead.

    I do get the same error you do at webmail.domain.com FWIW.

    SSL Webmail stopped redirecting from non-SSL url

    Something really odd is happening this morning on one of our mail server.
    Till yesterday, when we entered in the URL address: webmail.domainname.com we where correctly being redirected to https://webmail.domainname.com:2096

    But this is not the case anymore this morning.

    It gets redirected to: https://webmail.domainname.com WITHOUT the port and so gives an SSL error

    We didn't tweak any setting. I checked all the "redirect" related settings in WHM and they are identical to our other server where redirecting still occurs.
    I deleted browser cache and everything but this was not the problem.

    Any hint will be much appreciated! Thanks

    Thank you mate. Do I have to open a ticket or is there already any "common" solution for this issue? Thanks

    Hello.

    Just to shed some light here:

    The apache error_log has lots of "Invalid method in request \x16\x03\x01" related to this problem and it's tracked back to "ssl request on unencrypted port".

    Apparently Apache is listening on port 443 but unencrypted: if you telnet webmail.domain.dom 443 and do a GET / <enter><enter>, you'll have a "plain" response and that shouldn't happen with SSL:

    ~$ telnet webmail.domain.dom 443
    Trying xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx ...
    Connected to webmail.domain.dom.
    Escape character is '^]'.
    GET /
    <html><head><META HTTP-EQUIV="refresh" CONTENT="0;URL=/cgi-sys/defaultwebpage.cgi"></head><body></body></html>
    Connection closed by foreign host.

    Does this help narrowing it down ?

    I think our issue is more that the Rewrite is not happening correctly in apache
    This is the same for all the subdomain proxies (cpanel, whm, webmai, webdisk and autoconfig)

    Hello :)

    We have a few internal cases open regarding this issue. Please note the following entries in the change logs:

    11.42.1.7
    Fixed case 82597: CPanel proxy subdomains use the configured cPanel service cert.
    Fixed case 97245: Corrected SSL redirect behavior for subdomain proxies.


    11.42.1.1
    Fixed case 46364: Updated cpanel proxy configuration to work with SSL properly.


    Could you verify if the issue continues after upgrading to cPanel version 11.42.1.7?

    Thank you.

    SSL connection error on certain domains

    Hi There,

    Until recently i could access webmail.domain.com and access the webmail.

    But now it gives an error:

    Secure Connection Failed

    An error occurred during a connection to webmail.domain.co.uk. SSL received a record that exceeded the maximum permissible length. (Error code: ssl_error_rx_record_too_long)

    I know i can visit the webmail by going to domain.com/webmail but i would like to fix the problem if possible.

    So does anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks

    May be you could try upgrading WHM to 11.42.1.7 from 5 and see whether it solves the issue. It may if these issues reported and yours are related.

    Hi, I've tried a /scripts/upcp --force but it is still saying i'm running 11.42.1.5 .. is this due to the mirror I am using, if so how can I change it to one that has the latest updates.

    Thank you!

    Never mind, I found it is not the RELEASE version but the EDGE version.

    I've updated to EDGE build 11.42.1.7 and after doing a "/scripts/rebuildhttpdconf" and restarting httpd, SSL is now working properly again. No more "SSL Connection Error" due to sending un-encrypted html on port 443.

    Good. But dont forget to set it back to release once it is pushed to release from edge.
