SSL certificates

To use an SSL certificate with the platform, it must be:

  • Accessible on the EclecticIQ Platform host.

  • Placed in a location that can be accessed by the eclecticiq user.

  • Owned by eclecticiq:eclecticiq.

To make sure that the platform can access the SSL certificate:

  1. Upload the SSL certificate to a location on the platform host.

  2. On the platform host, open the terminal.

  3. Change ownership of the SSL certificate by running as root in the terminal:

    chown eclecticiq:eclecticiq /path/to/cert.pem

    Where /path/to/cert.pem is the location of the SSL certificate the platform needs to access.
