Installing A Valid Web Certificate

Provide a valid web certificate for your Access Server admin and client portals

In this tutorial

Access Server comes with a self-signed certificate for access immediately after launch, but this will bring up a security warning in your browser. This tutorial steps through how to replace it with your own, valid web certificate.

What you’ll need:

  1. A certificate (we used one from Let’s Encrypt)
  2. A DNS record created
  3. A valid hostname set with your Admin Web UI

Configure your Web Server certificate:

  1. Login to your Access Server Admin Web UI
  2. Go to Configuration > Web Server
  3. Get three necessary files from your certificate provider: CA Bundle, Certificate, Private Key
  4. Add each file to the Admin Web UI in the corresponding field
  5. Click on Validate
  6. You’re secured
