I’m not sure this is the right place to put this(Feel free to move it), it’s is not a support issue. More a guide to Setup HTTPS for Windows Server 2016+. I struggled a few hours to get this to work.
I used Setting up secure HTTP with AMP · CubeCoders/AMP Wiki · GitHub, but i couldn’t get this to work with the serial number from the certificate, so i did it in another way
My AMP Installation is not exposed to the web, but i couldn’t change to a static RCON password for my rust server, therefore i had to set the SSL.
- Create Self-Signed Certificate:
New-SelfSignedCertificate -CertStoreLocation Cert:\LocalMachine\My -DnsName "mylocalsite.local" -FriendlyName "MyLocalSiteCert" -NotAfter (Get-Date).AddYears(10)
This creates a self-signed certificate which will expire after 10 years
- Go to windows certificate manager and export the certificate as .pfx
Run > mmc.exe > File > Add/Remove Snap in > Certificates Go to Personal > Certificates > Right-Click on the new certificate > Export
I copied my certificate.pfx file inside the AMP-Datastore folder
- Shutdown all AMP Instances and ADS
- Edit the AMPConfig for the ADSInstance
Webserver.CertificatePath=C:\AMP-Datastore\MyNewCertificate.pfx Webserver.CertificateSerial= Webserver.CertificateDomain= Webserver.CertificatePassword=VerySecretPasswordIUsedForExport
- Edit the AMPConfig for instance(s) to use https to the backend auth server
Start up ADS Again
Access the new url with https : https://127.0.0.1:8080/
This is not a trusted certificate due to unknown RootCA, so it will appear as “Not Secure”.
But it’s still SSL and now i could change to a static RCON password for my rust server
