Err_ssl_server_cert_bad_format

After installing the panel on a clean Ubuntu 18.04 (hetzner), I can’t access the panel either by IP address or by domain.

Chrome Error: ERR_SSL_SERVER_CERT_BAD_FORMAT
Chrome does not offer any alternatives to open the site.

https://78.46.216.208:8083
https://srv.freedome.pro:8083

(I dont see any errors in hestia or nginx logs)

I do not know if it is a correct fix, but it works:

  1. v-add-letsencrypt-domain admin srv.freedome.pro
  2. make a link of generated certificates (.key & .crt) to /usr/local/hestia/ssl/
  3. systemctl restart hestia

Now it can be open https://srv.freedome.pro:8083

Just run v-add-letsencrypt-host, it will generate you the cert for hestia backend.
