SSl certificate added, broke Web GUI


Apr 5, 2019
Hello guys,
Yesterday i added an SSL certificate which seemed to work, but resulted in my web gui being unaccessable :(. I then tried searching online for people with similar problems, and ended up deleting two files:

/etc/pve/local/pveproxy-ssl.pem and /etc/pve/local/pveproxy-ssl.key...which i now think was a bad move.

I then proceeded to read the wiki (,_5.0_and_5.1), which had a section titled revert to default configuration. This didnt seem to work either :(.

What should i do? I dont care if SSL is removed, added og whatever, i just want to acces my web gui.
- Thank you in advance!
