SSL on ISPConfig itself

I would recommend the following procedure: Create a website in ISPConfig that has the hostname that the ISPConfig panel uses and activate LE for this site. Then symlink the cert, bundle and key files to the /usr/local/ispconfig/interface/ssl/ files.

Greylisting in ISPConfig

For ispconfig 3.1, you just install postgrey before you install ispconfig. If you installed it afterwards, then you have to run an update and choose “reconfigure services = yes” during update.

Renew all Certificates in ISPConfig

Even in ISPConfig, you can easily renew all certificates that need renewal with

sudo certbot renew

Even better - just test if it will work, but do not do anything actually.

sudo certbot renew --dry-run

Fixing “502 Bad Gateway” error on ISPConfig3 app

After an upgrade, the ISPConfig3 Control Panel is displaying a “502 Bad Gateway” error, but other hosted sites are working normally.

The error message in /var/log/nginx/error.log is:

...connect() to unix:/var/lib/php8.1-fpm/ispconfig.sock failed (13: Permission denied) while connecting to upstream,

To fix this issue, make sure to check permissions not only on the file, but also on the parent folders of that file. The easiest way to do this is to type ll /var/lib/php* -d and, if any discrepancies are found, set them to chmod 755 /var/lib/php8*.
