Thanks Ric for the detailed explanation in the other topic. I tested it locally and works like a charm.

 

Would the same apply for using SSL?

 

I have Coral 8.6.8 running in a production setting using SSL (with the cert from a CA - GoDaddy). Yes I know it's "out of date", but it just keeps chugging along with no issues :)

 

Of course, this version has the OpenSSL vulnerability and I am looking into how I can fix this in the most efficient manner. I am not an SSL "expert" as this is my one and only install using it. 

 

Using the steps in your previous explanation, would it "work" if I just moved the files from the Coral 8.6.8 SSL folder to the SSL folder in Zero 11.1.3 (along with the database export/import of course) or are there additional specific steps to take with the SSL portion? Any other considerations?

 

Thanks in advance :)

I assume you are referring to this page:  http://forum.uniform...wtopic=2905&hl=

The above steps are applicable.
 Regarding SSL first enable this using UniController.
Copy your certificates from folder \UniServer\usr\local\apache2\server_certs into folder UniServerZ\core\apache2\server_certs

Make sure any changes you made to file UniServer\usr\local\apache2\conf\extra\httpd-ssl.conf are reflected in file UniServerZ\core\apache2\conf\extra\httpd-ssl.conf

To run the servers as a service download the latest module (ZeroXI_uniservice_1_0_3.exe).

All the best
Ric

Thanks for the quick response Ric :)

 

Sorry for not specifying the post, but yes, that was the one.

 

Will give this a go and report back.

 

Cheers!

Update:

 

Did the upgrade overnight as per the excellent instructions and all is up and running smoothly (and noticeably quicker) :)

 

The only "issue" I had was forgetting to un-comment the SSLCertificateChainFile line and rename the default entry to the one obtained from the CA ... I thought I had had enough coffee :)

 

Thanks again!

 

Cheers!
