Adding SSL certificate to Site
Can anyone help me with setting up an SSL certificate for a site on ISPconfig 3?
I have web site that was running perfectly fine on a separate custom debian system (not ISPconfig), with an SSL cert.
And we moved this site to a new ISPconfig3 server.
In the ISPconfig3 interface I pasted the SSL cert into the "SSL Certificate" field on the SSL tab of Web Domain.
And ticked the box for SSL.
However site does not work.
Firefox reports error:
SSL received a record that exceeded the maximum permissible length.
(Error code: ssl_error_rx_record_too_long)
I cannot find anything in ispconfig logs.
When I view the apache config file (e.g. /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/abc.domain.com) I cannot see any reference of SSL.
On our previous custom server, we had these entries:
The SSL tab in ISPconfig has 3 fields:
- SSL Request
- SSL Certificate
- SSL Bundle
Which one does the SSL key file go in?
Which one does the SSL CSR file go in?
And does the SSL cert (*.crt) go in the SSL Certificate box?
Thanks in advance.
So the steps to enable ssl for a website are:
1) Check the ssl checkbox in the site settings.
2) Create a new self signed ssl cert in ispconfig on the ssl tab.
3) Let the csr sign from a ssl authority and paste the cert into the sl cert field and choose save.
All ssl authorities lat you resign a cert, so you could reissue your cert based on the ispconfig csr.
Thats also described in detail in the ispconfig 3 manual.
I managed to get the SSL working using the current SSL key/crt files.
As I had no option to re-create a new CSR/CRT, as this would have cost.
I put the current *.crt and *.key files into the sites /ssl/ directory on the ISPconfig server.
And enabled 'ssl' in the site options.
This worked, and ispconfig created the following entries in the apache2 site file:
