Many things that were available for configuration over CLI we have put to the Splynx GUI configuration. One of such examples is HTTLS activation and SSL certificate installation.
You should always protect the Splynx server with HTTPS, even if it’s used inside the ISP network. HTTPS and SSL provide critical security and data integrity to your server and your user’s personal information.
From Splynx release 2.1, the HTTPS/SSL option can be found under Config → Main → HTTPS / SSL:
Splynx allows you to import your existing certificate, which was verified by the official authority. In this case, administrator should upload the SSL private key and Certificate.
In case you don’t have a certificate, you can request the Let’s Encrypt free certificate via Splynx configuration. Click on the Let’s Encrypt and save. Important is to enter the domain name or subdomain name that is linked to your Splynx server (point A entry in domain settings to Splynx server IP address)
Now you are two steps far from getting SSL ready and running – click Validate to obtain an SSL certificate and then Activate to run the HTTPS. As a result, you should see all status messages with green highlighting:
From now, Splynx runs on a secure connection. Let’s Encrypt is a trusted free, automated, and open Certificate Authority.
Let’s imagine you want to receive an email in your inbox when the administrator makes some changes to a service plan.
