Configuring HTTPS

You can enable or disable Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) support in OpsCenter.

To enable HTTPS:

  1. Open the OpsCenter configuration file, opscenterd.conf, located in one of these directories:

    • Package installations: /etc/opscenter/opscenterd.conf
    • Binary tarball installations (Linux and Mac OSX): <install_location>/conf/opscenterd.conf
    • Windows installations: Program Files (x86)\DataStax Community\opscenter\conf\opscenterd.conf
  2. Scroll to the [webserver] section.

    This snippet from opscenterd.conf shows the [webserver] section that you change:

    # opscenterd.conf
    port = 8888
    interface =
    # The following settings can be used to enable ssl support for the opscenter
    # web application. Change these values to point to the ssl certificate and key
    # that you wish to use for your OpsCenter install, as well as the port you would like
    # to serve ssl traffic from.
    #ssl_keyfile = /var/lib/opscenter/ssl/opscenter.key
    #ssl_certfile = /var/lib/opscenter/ssl/opscenter.pem
    #ssl_port = 8443
  3. Remove the comment markers (#) in front of ssl_keyfile, ssl_certfile, and ssl_port.

    You can use the default values for the ssl_keyfile and ssl_certfile or replace them with the path to your own private and public certificates.

  4. Save opscenterd.conf and restart OpsCenter.
