Unable to log into web GUI (works for a short time after option 16)

  • Web GUI works temporary when i use option 16  (restart PHP-FPM) but after a short time it stops working again. The connections remain active and everything works fine even though the web GUI not accessible.

  • Wireshark giving me this when trying to connect to pfsense

    29536 881.826223 TCP 66 [TCP Retransmission] 58058 → 443 [SYN] Seq=0 Win=64240 Len=0 MSS=1460 WS=256 SACK_PERM=1

  • I have followed the pfsense guide to resolving web gui login issues and still unable to resolve this problem.

    I can access the web gui BUT only for a few minutes after option 16 RESTART PHP-FPM.  Then it doesn't allow connection and i must use option 16 again.

    Anyone help me please?

  • The SYN retransmit looks like there is nothing accepting the connection.. Would think nginx aint running then..
    Can you try when the problem occurs?:

    sockstat -4L | grep nginx

    Then while trying to access the webgui:

    pfctl -ss | grep 443

    Anything special configured/installed? bridge/HA/squid/snort/suricata/other? Any portforwards that might be preventing traffic reaching the webgui?
