Regenerating Self-Signed SSL Certificate (Apache)

When you initially set up Faspex on your system a pregenerated, self-signed SSL certificate is also installed. If you have changed your Apache hostname, regenerate the self-signed certificate by following the instructions below.

  1. Open a Command prompt window and run the asctl command.

    In a command prompt window (Start menu > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt), run the following command to generate a new, self-signed SSL certificate for your installation of Faspex (where you will replace the HOSTNAME with your Apache server's IP address or host name):

    > asctl apache:make_ssl_cert HOSTNAME

    Answer yes when prompted to overwrite the existing certificate.

  2. Confirm that your certificates are updated.

    Check the following location to confirm your self-signed SSL certificates have been updated:
