SSL setup for CMS on Fedora/CentOS/RHEL
NOTE : Instructions tested on CentOS/RHEL 5.4
To use SSL for CMS, we need to setup stunnel.
- Login as root user.
- Install stunnel
yum install stunnel
- Generate a certificate
cd /etc/stunnel wget http://www.convirture.com/downloads/stunnel/RHEL/stunnel.cnf (umask 077; \ /usr/bin/openssl req -new -x509 -days 365 -nodes \ -config /etc/stunnel/stunnel.cnf \ -out /etc/stunnel/stunnel.pem -keyout /etc/stunnel/stunnel.pem)
- Download configuration file.
cd /etc/stunnel wget --no-cache http://www.convirture.com/downloads/stunnel/RHEL/RHEL_stunnel.conf -O stunnel.conf
- By default the SSL port is set to 8082, feel free to change it by changing stunnel.conf
[convirt] accept = 8082 connect = 8081
- start the stunnel
- Point the browser to the login page.
NOTE This assumes that ConVirt is already started using ./convirt-ctl start
