Using my SSL cert

Post by dcol » Sat Aug 28, 2021 11:17 am

How do I use my wildcard cert. Lets say I want to use magicspam.mydomain.com to login to the web console.
I have a valid mydomain.pem wildcard cert containing private and public keys.
I know I need to make changes in the c:\magicspam\conf\httpd.conf and place my cert in that folder and add a DNS A record for magicspam.mydomain.com
I changed these lines in httpd.conf
ServerName magicspam.mydomain.com:6244
SSLCertificateFile c:/magicspam/conf/mydomain.pem
SSLCertificateKeyFile c:/magicspam/conf/mydomain.pem

After restarting the magicspam services, https://magicspam.mydomain.com:6244 does not work.
I also tried renaming mydomain.pem to magicspam.pem
Do I need to add the site to IIS? I will only use this locally.
What else do I need to do?

Hello dcol,

Thank you for contacting us.

If you are only looking to connect to your server locally using the "https:/magicspam.mydomain.tld:6244" adding the host entry in your host file in the form of:

127.0.0.1 magicspam.mydomain.tld

should be sufficient.

Alternatively, if you have already configured an 'A' DNS record for 'magicspam' host on your domain (we believe you are using a different domain than "mydomain.com") to point to your public server IP address, just ensure that your firewall allows connections to your server on port 6244.

Otherwise, based on the provided information, your SSL certificate should be properly installed in MagicSpam, pending you have reverted the httpd.conf information to default and installed your private key and the certificate in .pem format to c:/magicspam/conf/magicspam.pem.

We hope this information helps.
