Question

How do I use my own SSL certificate for HTTPS with Enterprise 7.4.2

 

Prerequisites

Certificate archive, in password-protected PFX format, whose "Issued To" name either matches the base URL of the Enterprise server or has a domain wildcard.

Note: The password cannot contain certain characters, such as quotes, for it to work in the XML config file.

 

Answer

  1. Copy your PFX file into the Quin-C bin folder (typically "[drive]:\Program Files\AccessData\Forensic Tools\[version]\bin\")
  2. From the bin folder, open ADG.WeblabSelfHost.exe.config in a text editor
  3. Find and change the value of the certificateFileName key to the full path to your PFX file, as shown below:
    <add key="certificateFileName" value="C:\Program Files\AccessData\Forensic Tools\7.2\bin\myCertificate.pfx" />
  4. Find and change the value of the certificatePassword key to the password for your PFX file, as shown below:
    <add key="certificatePassword" value="myPassword" />
  5. Save and close ADG.WeblabSelfHost.exe.config
  6. Restart the AccessData Quin-C Self Host Service service

 

Note

The value in the "certificatePassword" will automatically encrypt itself when the service is restarted.
