20.6.1. Knowledge Base Article: kb-00005

20.6.2. Description

The generated self signed certificate doesn’t appear to be working. Is it possible to generate a new certificate for the system?

20.6.3. Solution

Sometimes the cert/key pair in the github tree is corrupt or not sufficient for the environment. The following command can be used to rebuild a local cert/key pair.

sudo openssl req -new -x509 -keyout server.key -out server.crt -days 365 -nodes

It may be necessary to install the openssl tools.
