Plesk 11.x / Windows :: Enable SSL With A Self-signed Certificate?
Feb 1, 2013
I want to enable SSL in one of my domains. I've checked old topics about how to do this, but I can't get it done.
I want to use a self-signed certificate. I'm gonna use the SSL to receive and send data from/to an Android device, not to access it using a web browser.
I created my own certificate in SSL certificates (I used the self-signed option instead of Request). I didn't add anything else after that, I didn't add Certificate or anything else.
Once it's been created, I enable SSL on the domain I want. I just enabled the checkbox, there's no combobox to select a certain certificate, but I changed the default certificate on SSL certificates. I thought that was enough, but it wasn't working so I went to IP Addresses, I clicked in my dedicated IP (shared) and selected my new certificate in there, but it's still not working.
I've just seen that Apache Tomcat might not be installed, I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it. If I go to Server->Service Management I can find Apache Tomcat 5.4.4 in the Java tab (it's the only Apache entrance), but it says it's not active since it hasn't been installed or it's not correctly configurated. If I go to Applications->Installed applications Apache Tomcat is not there.
I got a plesk VPS and purchased SSL from GoDaddy. After I installed it, I was getting an error message from firefox about “SSL is self signed”. I obviously did something wrong, but what?I first logged into the SSL certificate section and created a new one...
i have just bought a SSL certificate. it has been succesfully installed on the dedicated server.. but when i enter to the addres firefox tells that its an insecure site because the SSL ceriticate is not signed...
I want to secure the webmail access (webmail.mydomain.com) with an SSL certificate. In this case, a self signed certificate should be enough because the users using the webmail will trust it.
Latest Plesk 12 and Windows Server 2012 R2, MailEnable WebMail as shipped with Plesk. Horde Webmail.
How would I set this up? I found no setting to enable SSL for the webmail subdomain. And I can not add it as subdomain and assign the self-signed certificate on it (Plesk panel does not allow webmail.mydomain.com as subdomain as it is already in use).
I found these links but they did not really answer my question as the information is mostly outdated (Windows 200):
PRODUCT, VERSION, VERSION OF MICROUPDATE, OPERATING SYSTEM, ARCHITECTURE Windows Web Server 2008 SP2 + Plesk 11.0 x86
PROBLEM DESCRIPTION I've created an self-signing SSL-Certificate an set it up to my server-ip. Then, I got kicked from the server and now, on every site hosted on the server, even the Plesk Panel(https://xxxxxx:8443 is not reacheable. Server-Timeout.
One of the pages is this one: [URL] ....
STEPS TO REPRODUCE Created self-signing Certificate, only filled in my full Name, Country and Domain. Got kicked from the server, and now I have no possibility to access my server.
ACTUAL RESULT Nothing. Got File Access with a recovery system, but this isn't really working.
EXPECTED RESULT A working Plesk Panel would be nice.
how to enable AWStats for the domains on my server. In our old Panel (v9.5), I could go Domains > DOMAIN.TLD > Web Hosting Settings, and on that page there was an option to choose between Webalizer/AWStats/None. In version 11.5, I don't see that option.
When I look on the actual Windows server, I do see an AWStats directory along with a Webalizer directory in "C:Program Files (x86)ParallelsPleskAdditional", so I think it's installed...? AWStats comes along as part of the Plesk Panel license, right?
I can see the Webalizer stats when I browse to [URL] ...., but I'd much rather see AWStats.
I noticed that IETF had not been enabled initially in the DNS template. This has been corrected but we now have numerous domains without that enabled. I would like to enable this on all those domains. Doing so from the GUI would be too time consuming for that number of domains.
So is there a cli switch that will turn this on for all domains or that I can run against all the domains?
I have a Windows Mobile 6 (Blackjack II) phone that I am connecting to my cpanel VPS via Pop3.
I have a number of pop3 accounts setup to check for email every 30 minutes. However, every couple days the phone stops downloading mail and if I do a manual send and receive I get a "The Server Certificate is not valid. Continue Anyway?" with a yes/no. If I click yes, the email downloads and then the automated emails will work for several days and then the process is repeated.
Does anyone know how to either disable this check on the phone (no luck finding that yet), or to install the certificate from the cpanel mail server to the phone?
I use Plesk 8 and one of my site's SSL certificate will expire at July 5. So I need to renew it now. The SSL certificate was ordered from Godaddy and I've already got two new cert files form Godaddy: my-domain.crt and gd_bundle.crt. What should I do now?
I have issue with qmail server. I want to update ssl certificate and for this i have replaced older servercert.pem with new servercert.pem file in /var / qmail/ control/. and restart service of qmail using qmailctl restart.But after updating this certificate my web browser still showing older certificate details.
I installed a new ssl certificate, changed it to be default and secure Plesk, switched the IP to use it. Now I wanted to remove the old one but it shows me that there is still one usage of this cert and I can't remove it. But how can I find what is using it?
I tried to remove the ssl certificate but although I have removed it from the IP I'm getting an error that it is still assigned to it. The solution in [URL] .... didn't work cause the Certificate field is grey out in my case.
i have installed Plesk in my VPS, Created Domain and tried to upload my files , All Ok but when upload .htaccess file , it disaper's .. i use filzilla ftp and there opition to force see hidden file , when do that , the file shows up .. but how to disable it from been hidden each time i upload it
I am replacing the default certificate in Plesk so that customers do not get a certificate warning when visiting the panel login page.
I've created the certificate in the "SSL Certificates" section made it default and used it to secure Plesk. However I've still got all the existing domains using the old default certificate, how can I do a mass changeover so that all existing domains are now using the new certificate?
I've updated the IP's to use the new certificate. When I go to "SSL Certificates" in "Tools and Settings", it seems that there are some domains now using the new certificate but quite a lot of the other are still not, how can I get these over too?
Iâ€™ve read the documentations of (PBAS, Plesk, and Securing Websites).how to add SSL Certificate to our Webmail? In addition, I need to know, how to request CSR key and install SSL for our mail server in order for us to protect our emails and to use the SSL Protocol in mail softwares such as Outlook? I will explain the scenario in details:
1- We have (www.example.com) which is our "Plesk Server hostname" and a subscription in our "Plesk Server". 2- We have (pbas.example.com) which is our "PBAS Server hostname" and it's not a subscription in our "Plesk Server". 3- We have (account.example.com) which is a "Subscription" in our "Plesk Server".
Here are the DNS records of our domain and subdomains: Host-Type-Data -A-192.168.1.30 www-A-192.168.1.30 mail-A-192.168.1.30 pbas-A-192.168.1.31 account-A-192.168.1.32 -MX-example.com.
how to generate CSR key for each domain/subdomain and how to install the SSL for it? Our "Plesk" is 11.5 and installed on CentOS 6.4.
When using `plesk bin --update domain.example.com -certificate-name 'certificate'`, Plesk always returns `Unable to find certificate`, I have verified the certificate exists using `plesk bin certificate -l -admin` and the spelling of the certificate name is correct. I can use the WebUI to associate the certificate to the site and have verified it works, however I need to automate this task.
Also, the online documentation for the `plesk bin site` command does not mention the `-certificate-name` option, however it is listed when running `plesk bin site -h`.
The documentation missing the information is found here: [URL] ....
My System: Ubuntu 12.04 Plesk 12.0.18 Update #18 Only Webserver no mail
What I want: I have an old sha1 certificate and I would change this for the whole server.
What I have done so far: I have already uploaded the new sha256 certificate with a new private key to plesk (I can not simply replace the old one, plesk does not allow me to upload a new private key).
Then I set the new certificate as standard certificate and pressed the "secure pannel" button.
After that the panel uses the new certificate.
Then I set in "Tools & Settings -> IP Addresses" on both IP addresses the new certificate.
But now the "Tools & Settings -> SSL Certificates" shows me that the old certificate is still used 2 times somewhere. But the Interface does not show where it is used. How can I find out where this certificate is used? I want to remove the old certificate from the server.
