Switching to HTTPS using Control Panel

Community Server/Control Panel version: last
Type of installation of Workspace (docker, deb/rpm, exe): docker
OS: Ubuntu server 22.04LTS
Browser version: Firefox 11x


I followed this tutorial : Switching to HTTPS using Control Panel - ONLYOFFICE

I’m using auto-signed certificats. Onlyoffice workspace community is on https mode but my web browser say to me that my connection to the portal and the server is not secure (error code : MOZILLA_PKIX_ERROR_SELF_SIGNED_CERT). I tried with another browser and I received the same message : NET::ERR_CERT_AUTHORITY_INVALID. I don’t know how to solve this problem.

Have you got an idea ?


Hey @Bob :handshake:

A self-signed certificate is signed by the same person who creates it. Such a certificate can be created using the OpenSSL toolkit, for example.

Although self-signed certificates ensure a sufficient security level, they may cause some issues. E.g., when you access your portal, a security warning appears in a browser informing you that the certificate cannot be verified.

They are also considered more vulnerable to the man-in-the-middle attacks. It’s better to use self-signed certificates for testing purposes or on a server that can only be accessed from your local network.

  • You can add your certificate to the browser or choose “Accept the Risk and Continue.”
