SSL Setup Using XAMMP

Hi has anyone got a step by step guide on how to create and install then test a SSL Cert using the SSL options supplied with XAMMP

Thanks

Hi,
I'm looking for the same thing. I'm going to give it a try with the apache instructions, about halfway through in:
http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/ssl/ssl_faq.html
The openssl command is in apache/bin/

I tried it a couple of times following different instructions and got:

unable to find 'distinguished_name' in config
problems making Certificate Request
4294192761:error:0E06D06A:configuration file routines:NCONF_get_string:no conf or environment variable:.\crypto\conf\conf_lib.c:325:

when trying to create the .csr Certificate Request. Anybody got an idea?

i'm getting ready to do this again with another domain.

I'm reading these again to help:
http://www.openssl.org/docs/HOWTO/certificates.txt
http://www.openssl.org/docs/HOWTO/keys.txt

Your problem is addressed here

http://www.openssl.org/support/faq.html#USER4

You will want to define the config file for openssl
openssl.exe req -config openssl.cnf -new -out ..\conf\ssl.csr\server.csr

You want to have your SSL vhost configured to answer port 443, you can test it with snakeoil.crt. I believe the default installation includes ssl.conf pre configured with snakeoil

Then it's basically: for a self signed certificate in RSA from apache/bin

to create key --> openssl.exe rsa -in privkey.pem -out ..\conf\ssl.key\server.key

to create --> openssl.exe x509 -in ..\conf\ssl.csr\server.csr -out ..\conf\ssl.crt\server.crt -req -signkey ..\conf\ssl.key\server.key -days 365

update ssl.conf and restart

Here is a bat file for windows that worked for me, edit filenames and run.

make_certificate.bat

edited link should work better. I found that bat on the german side after much translation it's been around for a while now. Good to hear you got it working.

Testing it is easy, https://yourdomain.net. Getting your ssl.conf working may get tricky depending on your config. Check docs and search forum lot's of good info there.

or take following batch for keygeneration


put the following as generate_key.cmd in apache\bin directory
and open a console there.

"generate_key server 2000" generates a key named server valid for 2000 days after asking some questions about your config.


Code: Select all
@echo off
rem generate_key.cmd ServerName

if "%1"=="" goto anzeige

cd \xampp\apache\conf\ssl.key
\xampp\apache\bin\openssl genrsa 1024 > %1.key

rem MakeCertifikate ServerName days


cd \xampp\apache\conf\ssl.key
\xampp\apache\bin\openssl.exe req -config \xampp\apache\bin\openssl.cnf -new -x509 -days %2 -key %1.key -out \xampp\apache\conf\ssl.crt\%1.crt


rem ServerName steht bei mir immer für den Namen unter den ich das System im Browser später
rem erreichen möchte ( im Verzeichniss Server sind alle Virtuelles Server). Days steht
rem für den Gültigkeitszeitraum.
goto exit

:anzeige
echo.
echo              generate_key Keyname 2000
echo.
echo generates a key valid for 2000 Days
echo.
:exit
echo %1.key is located in \xampp\apache\conf\ssl.key\
echo %1.crt is located in  \xampp\apache\conf\ssl.crt\
echo openssl.conf may be to be tuned before
echo the actual key has the name server

cd \xampp\apache\bin

is it possible to run multiple domains with SSL and each have their own SSL CERT?

yes .. look into ssl.conf (in xampp/apache/conf) .. You have to create an own Section for each domain with an own domain doc_root and an own Key

BUT You can only assign 1 domain to the ssl-standard-port 443 .. further domains have further ssl-ports..
