Changing IP via GUI or CLI breaks webgui access

Title says it all. If you change the static ip of the VE after installation, webaccess is no longer available. Changing the hosts file doesn't fix it. Changing it back to its original IP fixes it. Is there another file somewhere that needs editing?

New install of proxmox 6.1-3

Simple network setup I have:

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

iface enp8s0 inet manual

auto vmbr0
iface vmbr0 inet static
netmask 24
bridge-ports enp8s0
bridge-stp off
bridge-fd 0
