Toastman's webinterface dies when I switch to https

    I just did a 30-30-30 reset on my asus RT-N16 running tomato-K26USB-1.28.7502.1MIPSR2Toastman-RT-VLAN-Ext.trx

    I want to switch the default http to https under Administration>Admin Access, and then commit the changes, the web interface doesn't come back on.

    When I make this change:
    Local Access: HTTP
    to
    Local Access: HTTPS (then hit ok)

    https://192.168.1.1
    nor is it present on http://192.168.1.1

    I can restart the router, but again, no web interface. What I do get if I ssh into the box and look at /var/log/message:
    Code:
    Dec 31 22:00:51 unknown daemon.info httpd[505]: Generating SSL certificate...
    Dec 31 22:00:51 unknown daemon.warn httpd[505]: Unable to start SSL
    Dec 31 22:00:51 unknown daemon.info httpd[505]: Generating SSL certificate...

    Dec 31 22:00:51 unknown user.notice kernel: sd 0:0:0:0: [sda] 3947016 512-byte hardware sectors (2021 MB)
    Dec 31 22:00:51 unknown daemon.err httpd[505]: Unable to start SSL
    
    Here is the complete /tmp/var/log/messages: http://pastebin.com/QJ9mDT32

    The only way I can recover is to do another 30-30-30 reset.

    1) Why is this happening?
    2) Can I modify the webserver's config file once I am sshd'ed into the box somehow?

    I flashed it to tomato-K26USB-1.28.RT-MIPSR2-110-VPN.trx from shibby and the problem is gone :/

    Https bug is fixed in Victek build. I reported this bug to Victek and now it is fixed (about 3months ago).... Try Shibby or Victek and tell us if problem persists

    It's fixed in my builds, too.

    @Toastman - Is it fixed in tomato-K26USB-1.28.7502.1MIPSR2Toastman-RT-VLAN-Ext? This is the one giving me the issue.

    @Toastman, I can confirm this bug is present in tomato-K26USB-1.28.7502.1MIPSR2Toastman-RT-Ext

    Yes, the bug in 7502 and 7502.1 was fixed, so you have to try a newer build.

    @Toastman, OK. I will wait for you to call one of the subsequent ones 'stable' before flashing again. Just wanted to be sure you were aware of it. Keep up the great work!

    It probably should be explicitly mentioned that the bug in question was introduced in 7502, you can use older builds to avoid this bug too.

    The latest builds are very stable. The main difference is that we are experimenting with different method of using ipv6. That is why it is labelled "BETA". A BETA label does not mean "unstable". For instance, all RT builds that I publish I use myself on networks with a great many users and I have not seen a single crash for a year or two now.

    TIP: I would strongly encourage anyone not to take too much notice of the word "BETA" in any of our builds. Generally speaking they are pretty stable or we will not release them. If we have questionable TEST updates we need testing we will usually ask for feedback.

    I believe this bug is present in Build No. Tomato Firmware v1.28.0502 MIPSR2Toastman-RT-N K26 USB Ext.

    Please confirm.

    Thx.

    Probably I little bit off topic but when I use OpenVPN and switch to HTTPS then my OpenVPN stops working. I didn't do a lot of testing but I've had that problem with Shibby firmware.

    Make sure you don't run the OpenVPN server on the same port as the HTTPS server.
