The SnapServer web server uses a default, self-signed SSL certificate generated using the server name. A custom SSL certificate signed by a certificate authority can be installed instead to properly validate the server's identity and prevent browser warnings or other potential security concerns when connecting over HTTPS.
The following must be satisfied before installing a custom SSL certificate to a SnapServer:
- A startup script supporting custom SSL certificates must be downloaded.
- An SSL certificate (FQDN or wildcard domain) must be issued.
- The x509 SSL certificate and any required intermediate certificates must be in PEM-formatted text files.
- An SSH client supporting SSH v2 must be installed on a remote workstation.
