    I had previously loaded an SSL cert for the portal and it worked fine.  That cert was coming up to expiration and was replaced, however I had issues getting the new one to load.  The cert has now expired and the portal is all but unusable.  The System Setup tab within Portal Administration loads up a blank page.

    Does anyone know if the cert can be manually swapped on the backend?

    Thanks

    Have you tested opening the WMS portal directly on the server?

    The System Setup page loaded from the local server, however when I tried to load the cert, I get the alert to save / save & restart and anything I click, I get no response.  Could it be that my cert doesn’t have a password?

    Perhaps, can you re-create it with a password and test?

    I’ve done this by changing the server.xml. You can look for the line pointing to a java key store. I’ve pointed this to a PFX file instead in the same folder and changed the PW to my PFX password. Restart tomcat and all is good. Can provide more details if needed.

    Re-issued our wildcard cert with a password, but it didn’t like it.  Ended up generating a cert from our domain CA following directions I found on another site to setup the template.  The settings page worked when I logged into the console of the WMS server.  Got it updated to 3.8 and working perfectly now.
