The problem is that webmin doesn't know the external hostname at install time, so this cant be done by default..

Another fix you can try is to edit /etc/webmin/miniserv.conf and add the line :

host=your.external.hostname

And then run /etc/webmin/restart . This will force that hostname to be used in the http to https redirect..

that's the first thing we do. /etc/hostname is up to date..

Hey, I have the same issue with new EC2 instances, you need to update your hostname permanently (Google your linux OS followed by "hostname") for example in Ubuntu you need to edit /etc/hostname then run "/etc/init.d/hostname.sh start"

Then you need to reboot the server, a restart of webmin for some reason doesn't do it. You also need to clear your browsers cache.
