Hello,

I need to install the SSL/HTTPS on my Redmine server.

But I don’t succeed to find how I can do that. Can you help me please?

Hi @audranmala,

Thanks for using Bitnami. We don’t have any specific guides for Windows, but you can use the steps in the next link with the Windows binary for Lego and your installation directory instead of /opt/bitnami

There is a similar thread in this forum at https://community.bitnami.com/t/how-to-install-aws-ssl-certificate-in-bitnami-wp-stack-installled-in-windows/58408/7

Hello, sorry because I forgot to give details, I would like to install HTTPS mode of Redmine on Ubuntu 18 or 20 (I have both). Note : I already succeed to install Redmine bitnami. I also would like to install several instances of bitnami on a same server.

I thank you for your reply.

Hi @audranmala,

Thanks for the info. In the Linux case, you can follow the steps in the guide I shared with you.

I also would like to install several instances of bitnami on a same server.

This is possible, but take into account every stack will have its own Apache, Ruby and database services using different ports. Alternatively, I think you can use the next guide to install a custom Rails application on top of your current Bitnami installation

Hi again @audranmala,

We recommend you to create a server backup before doing any modification to avoid losing your current data in case of errors.

Hi,

Thank you to advise me. I installed bitnami Redmine.

I tryed to open the Bitnami HTTPS Configuration Tool but I don’t find the bitnami folder on my Ubuntu 20…

I am wondering if there is a guide to install HTTPS on Windows ? Or it is in the first link you gave me (Windows binary for Lego) ? Please

Hi @audranmala,

For local installations you can’t install a Let’s Encrypt certificate unless your instance is publicly accessible. But you can install a self signed certificate:

Thank you for your reply, I don’t find the folder bitnami to run the Bitnami HTTPS Configuration Tool, is there another way to run it please?

By the way, my instance is publicly accessible, so I follow the guide that you gave me (https://docs.bitnami.com/installer/apps/redmine/administration/create-ssl-certificate-apache/#windows)? I am so sorry because I am a beginner…

Hi @audranmala,

Thanks for your message. I understand your question is solved, is that correct?
