  • Updating SSL certs in DNAS

    Summary: Is there a way to get SC_SERV to use an updated SSL cert without restarting and dropping all listeners?

    Several months ago, I started using SSL certificates to support the rapidly increasing use of HTTPS even if I use HTTP on my web pages. That has been working will. However, there is a problem: the certificates from Lets Encrypt expire 3 months from issuance. That is not adjustable. It is easy enough to renew the certificate, but so far, I have not found a way to get SC_SERV to use the updated cert without being restarted and thus dropping all current listeners. Here is what I have tried:

    First, I update the certs in the config file. SC_SERV. Example:

    Not surprisingly, SC_SERV does not pick up the change.

    On the admin web page, I run update. However, the file name shown in view does not change, and the new cert is not used.
    I also tried Force, but that too did not change the files shown in view nor active the new cert.

    Restarting SC_SERV picked up the new cert.

    For completeness, I also tried overwriting the cert files with the new certs, but SC_SERVED did not start using it, even with update or force.

        Step 1: Purchase an SSL Certificate.
        Step 2: Configure your SSL Certificate.
        Step 3: Generate and upload a CSR.
        Step 4: Verify certificate details and click “Proceed.”
        Step 5: Allow time for the certificate to validate.
