Existing domain SSL cert for new crushftp setup

Hi There,

Need some help here. Appreciate any. Thanks.

We have existing domain published with certificate. We setup a crushftp on a windows box and are trying to use a certificate that is part of our existing domain certificate. Example below. certificate is valid. is created. How do we get this cert to be recognized on Crushftp?

Now each time we hit the public page, we are hit with cert warnings. Hope someone could help.

Hi, antlim.

You can import the certificate into CrushFTP at the admin>> preferences>> encryption>> ssl tab.
After you import the certificate test it, if it's successful save the changes you made then go to the admin>> ServerAdmin>>status and there at the https port hover the mouse over and it will appear the restart, and restart the CrushFTP https service.
After that you can test on a browser chrome works best on this, but for the certificate to work properly the sub domain you use to log in needs to be the one you used for the certificate: .
On a IE you might need to empty the browser cache to see the changes.

Let us know if you have issues.

Hi Arpad,

I have got my pfx certificate. However when I tried to import, it gives an error. I checked out the site that you provided, it seems that only CRT can be imported?

Hi Arpad,

I have successfully imported our cert. Just to share. I used Portecle to create a new keystone and imported our existing PFX and set an alias to our requirement. Thereafter I set crushftp to use the keystone. Tested working. Prior to all these, I installed Java unlimited JCE Policy.

Thanks so much for the guidance.

The PFX is a complete keystore, it needs no import. Its the equivalent of the JKS file. So you have improved its contents into the JKS, and that works too.
