Web configurator silently fails when "Private key does not match the certificate public key"
After choosing a particular certificate for the web administrator under System -> Advanced, the web server fails to restart. lighttpd.error.log doesn't show any error. Running /usr/local/sbin/lighttpd -f /var/etc/lighty-webConfigurator.conf manually shows,
(network.c.608) SSL: Private key does not match the certificate public key, reason: error:0D07207B:asn1 encoding routines:ASN1_get_object:header too long /var/etc/cert.pem
I must have some bad combination of certificates installed. It would be nice if the Web administrator could check for the condition that would cause this error before switching to the other certificate.

In the meantime you can get back in by resetting the LAN IP from the console, entering the same information again. During that process, it will offer to change the GUI back to HTTP mode, so you can regain access.
