https admin login 2031 2087 port
« on: October 10, 2018, 09:30:50 PM »
I have never understood how to login to admin using https.  When I attempt to login i get the old red lock and a message stating that website is not secure.

How do I get https on admin login.?

Server Settings > Change Hostname
You can see a list of all the links to use.

when I checked the hostname cert on line it failed. 

So I renamed the hostname to the old hostname (no change).  And a certificate was issued.  Pass the test for ssl.  But if I navigate to the hostname:2087 it says insecure connection.  Even though SSL is A Rated

See IE certificate info attached.

A very simple solution for this issue.

1 - Change hostname through "Change Hostname" option so that you get autoSSL installed


2. Reload cwpsrv service from console
service cwpsrv reload


and you will get green padlock on hostname page

I did change the hostname to the same hostname and got a valid certificate but despite sslllabs reporting the cert as valid, browser said that site was insecure.

How do I restart cwp? Console = shell  I get it now

okay reloading cwp worked.  So the question is, how do I renew? in January?  Same thing all over again...chainge hostname...reload cwp?  Seems rather cumbersome

If you look at the photo above it says valid until 2027  but SSLlabs says 90 days.  Which is it?

Was the 2027 certificate a self signed certificate.  Is there anything wrong with using a self signed certificate for admin panel?

OK I am glad to hear that it worked for you.

Hostname SSL is autorenewed after 90 days and thus you need not to worry about it. Nothing needed to be done at your end.
