Add SSL Support¶
Highly recommended for a production OnDemand Server. The SSL protocol provides for a secure channel of communication between the user’s browser and the Open OnDemand portal.
The following prerequisites need to be satisfied:
- The OnDemand Server will need a public facing host name, e.g.,
- An SSL certificate associated with this host name
Then you can modify your ood-portal-generator configuration file as such:
servername: ondemand.my-center.edu ssl: - "SSLCertificateFile \"/path/to/public.crt\"" - "SSLCertificateKeyFile \"/path/to/private.key\""
Each array item is treated as a line in the Apache configuration file. You can add more Apache SSL directives as separate array items.
Build the Apache configuration file and install it.
