How to set up SSL connection on Windows?

on 4/3/13, 1:19 PM 4,570 views

My .conf has the following lines:

xmlrpcs = True

xmlrpcs_interface =

xmlrpcs_port = 8071

Do they refer to the https interface? Where do I set up a certificate/specify domain name etc? When I go to https://localhost:8071, nothing is there, and indeed, netstat shows nothig listening on that port.


I also note these lines: secure_pkey_file = server.pkey secure_cert_file = server.cert but those files don't exist. What format do they need to be in?

For anyone else that comes across this, it appears these configs are misleading. I can't find any evidence SSL mode works (in Windows, don't know about linux) and the community doesn't seem to know either. So I'm resorting to a reverse proxy SSL offload to try make it happen.

SSL needs to be done with another server. I think these values are left overs from OE6.

On Linux, there are various examples to install another webserver (like Apache or NGINX) to do HTTPS and connect it locally to openERP.

NGINX is available for Windows, so try the following guide.
