Configure HTTPS

Daniele asked on June 29, 2021

I tried to configure HTTPS following this article, but the admin panel gets stuck on the server restart:
I also tried to start manually flexmonster-data-server.exe with these settings, but does not start and returns the error below.
“HTTPS”: {
“Enabled”: true,
“Protocols”: “Http1”,
“Certificate”: {“Path”: “file.pfx”, “Password”: “…”}
2021-06-29 10: 12: 40.5756 | FATAL | Flexmonster.DataServer.Program | HTTP configuration failed. Details: The specified network password is incorrect.
My data server version is 2.9.1
What’s wrong? Do I need any other prerequisites or configurations?

Now I can run manually flexmonster-data-server.exe with this config (using store instead of path),  but I can’t run Data Server as a service configuring same settings from Admin Panel.
Where does Admin Panel saves its configuration? How can I see differences between the two configurations?

Hi Daniele,
Thank you for giving us some time to take a deeper look at this.
This seems like an issue with the Data Server, so our team will investigate this behavior further. We’ll return to you with the research results on ETA Jul 27th.
Answering your next question, the Admin Panel configurations are stored in “C:/ProgramData/FlexmonsterDataServer/” on Windows and in “~/.local/share/FlexmonsterDataServer/” on macOS and Ubuntu/Linux. 
Please let us know if there is anything else we can help you with in the meantime.
Best regards,

Hello, Daniele,
We are happy to inform you that the issue with loading an HTTPS certificate with a password was fixed.
Also, our team fixed the issue with Admin Panel displaying an infinite loading screen if a server error occurs.
This is available in the latest (2.9.4) version of Flexmonster:
You are welcome to update the component. Here is our updating to the latest version guide for assistance.
Please let us know if the fix works fine for you.
Kind regards,
