Fresh Install - No access

Problem Description
I did a fresh install on a Hetzner VM, following the commands here:

I checked the secrets file and it was generated.

Expected Results
Fresh install should give a web interface to continue setup. :slight_smile:

Actual results
Can’t access on either port

running netstat -plantu shows that there is nothing running on the http / https ports.


  • FreedomBox version: latest
  • Hardware: Hetzner CX21 (2 CPU, 4 GB Ram)
  • How did you install FreedomBox?: ‘apt install freedombox’

The error I get in my browser is “ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED”, which is reasonable considering the ports are not being listened to.

It seems the issue is that Hetzner’s cloud configure script removes this default cert and it needs to be regenerated manually.

sudo make-ssl-cert generate-default-snakeoil --force-overwrite

Perhaps this could be checked for after the FreedomBox install script is ran?

I opened this issue:
It will add a check if the certificate is missing.
