I am running Server 4.0.3 on a Mac Mini running Yosemite 10.10.2 and am having trouble with setting up a secure website.

In my DNS, I have a primary zone with a machine record for my website,e.g. www.abccompany.com. In the website settings on Server, in addition to the default website of Server Website and Server Website (SSL), I have my website, www.abccompany.com for all addresses on port 80. I can access this from both within my lan and from the wan.

I have added an additional site for www.abccompany.com but as a secure website on port 443. If I try and go to this website securely using https://www.abccompany.com, I get shown my routers log in page which happens to be The server's IP address is

Does anyone know why Server is forwarding requests to the secure site of www.abccompany.com to my router's IP address and how to fix it.

Many Thanks

Check the DNS to make sure the server's DNS entry is set correctly. Also check whether you are using NAT, i.e., whether you connect to the Internet via NAT (check whether your router is configured to use NAT). If you are, you will either need to configure port forwarding in the router, or find hosting for your website that is externally accessible from the Internet.

  • Thank you. I had forgotten that I needed to forward https to my server.
