Yes, this has been seen before.
You are using a self-signed Apache SSL certificate with LWP 6.X, which causes LWP requests to fail.

Until such time as you have installed an Apache SSL certificate signed by a recognized Certificate Authority (e.g., InCommon or letsencrypt.org), and have verified your certificate chain (e.g., with whatsmychaincert.com), I would recommend changing the protocol from https to http in the entry for uiuclibraryexam in your /home/httpd/lonTabs/hosts.tab file.

Then do:

/etc/init.d/loncontrol restart
service httpd restart

Subject: [LON-CAPA-admin] Failed course creation on new server

Hello Everyone,

I’m working on setting up a standalone library, but I’m pretty sure I have a configuration wrong somewhere.  When I create a new course it seems to go well until I attempt to enter the course.  That results in a “Problems during Course Initialization” error with “Invalid Map: /home/httdp/html/adm/notfound.html.”  The cause is pretty obvious as I am seeing the following in lonnet.log.

Fri Mar  8 12:36:35 2019 (37959): Failed to transfer uiuc/7m3795933b6825c22uiuclibraryexam/default.sequence to host uiuclibraryexam: failed

That path is missing the first three character folders.  The course folder does not appear to have a default.sequence in it either, as would be expected if the sequence creation failed.

Has anyone run into this type of configuration issue?  Any thoughts on what I should tweak to allow courses to generate default sequences upon creation?
