Webinterface SSL hangs spinning on Ubuntu 18.04


Hi everyone,
thank you for creating UrBackup, very useful. I use it on local network on http, and it works nicely. Now i would like to switch to SSL, but can’t make it work. I followed the official instructions, then other different guides and forums on the net, including all tickets in this forum regarding webinterface, but still can’t make webinterface appear on screen through ssl. Can you please help? I am running Ubuntu 18.04, i did compile UrBackup from sources. What other information would you need? Please see picture on what is happening. Thank you very much for hints and help.

I am getting this error: [Sun Oct 14 22:58:38.017294 2018] [fastcgi:error] [pid 14140] [client] FastCGI: incomplete headers (0 bytes) received from server “/var/www/urbackup/x”, referer:

I just found out a way how to make UrBackup work perfectly on Ubuntu 18.04 Server. I will test on 18.04 Desktop and send you the correct procedure in a few days for those, who wish to have easier life and just follow a guide.



Hallo Libor,

i have the same issue on Ubuntu 18.04 with urbackup 2.3.7… Can you give me your solution?
But i have no Failure with fastcgi in apache.log!?



I installed libapache2-mod-fastcgi after and it works. Unfortunately, the package is not offered in ubuntu 18.04, I had to take the 16.04, one should note in the future that this package is apparently EoL.

thx Sinux


@Sinux Sorry for late answer, i was not notified of your question. You already got the most difficult part. Complete procedure is here: https://bednarik.it/jak-nainstalovat-urbackup-server-na-ssl-https-ubuntu-18-04/


Thanks Libor, I could solve it myself.
