The Verba Recording System comes with a preconfigured HTTPS port for web access and HTTP access can be turned off.
In order to avoid HTTPS related security warnings when your end-users access the Verba web application you need to install an SSL certificate.
Here are the steps to import your SSL certificate (the steps below assume that you have installed the product in the default folder):
Step 1 - Copy the new .key and .crt files to the Verba Media Repository server.
Step 2 - Create a backup of C:\Program Files\Verba\tomcat\conf\server.xml
Step 3 - Open the server.xml file with an editor
The SSL configuration is around the 100th line and looks something like this:
Change the SSLCertificateFile="c:\Verba.crt" to the new .crt file
Change the SSLCertificateKeyFile="c:\Verba.key" to the new .key file
Change SSLPassword="Verba123456" to the private key's encrypted password.
Optionally add an SSLCertificateChainFile setting, and specify the intermediate certificate file.
Step 4 - Restart Verba Web Application Service
Creating .key and .crt files from .p12 or .pfx file
Step 1 - Download the OpenSSL from here: https://indy.fulgan.com/SSL/openssl-1.0.2q-i386-win32.zip
Step 2 - Extract the downloaded .zip file and start the openssl.exe
Step 3 - Execute the following commands:
When it asks for a password enter the password of the certificate
Step 4 - Change the created privateKey.pem to .key and publicCert.pem to .crt
Encrypt the private key's password
AVAILABLE IN 9.6.17 AND LATER
In the webserver's configuration file the private key's password is stored in an encrypted form. During the software installation, the installer handles the password encryption. However, if the private key's password is changed without upgrading the system, the following process can be used to encrypt the password.
Step 1 - Open a command prompt in the Verba Media Repository server and execute the following command
Step 2 - Copy the output result and insert it in the server.xml file as SSLPassword attribute value like above
