When configuring SSL it is important that your hostname is in DNS, you can 
unfortunately not just invent a hostname here. The name attribute in <Host> 
(and defaultHost in <Engine>) must point to a real hostname in DNS.  If 
“” is not in DNS try using your IP address instead. You must 
then access mmonit using https://<your-ip-address>/ The manual and the chapter 
about setting up M/Monit with SSL has more information,
