Since my domain name is in HTTPS, the application no longer works

Post by Maxo42 »

My application works really well when I use it in HTTP with my domain name pointing to my IP address.

On the other hand since it is in HTTPS. I am only able to get to the login box and when I login to enter the app, my app opens but I automatically get a message as you can see below.

I click OK and everything shuts down. I am unable to enter the application. On the other hand, when I put my site back in HTTP it works. Could it be that for my connection box it works in HTTPS, because the SSL certificate secures my Windows VPS but that I am unable to enter my Aware IM application, because I must also configure an SSL certificate for the TOMCAT server to integrate Aware IM.
And if so, how to make it all work.

Thanks for your help.

I can just add this:
When you’re running a reverse proxy server in front of the aware tomcat server, you will get a secure SSL connection to the first server.
Then it does not require a secure connection to the aware server.
In this scenario, tomcat runs only on port 80 with no SSL certificate installed.

To be able to integrate my Aware IM application so that it works with the reverse proxy server, is it the eclipse file that I must choose as we can see on the screenshot.

Then I made a URL Rewrite to be able to enter the IP address of my Windows VPS which hosts the Aware IM application.

Finally I added a Farms server with all the necessary configurations to have my application in HTTPS.

Not to mention either that I also added an SSL certificate in the Server certificate section but unfortunately it still does not work.

Is there something I forgot to do or something I did wrong.

Thanks for your help.
