Setting up SSL
Setting up SSL
Fri, 21 May 2004 12:52:48 +0100
I want my Monit server to be open to the whole company (so service
checks can be carried out wherever I happen to be) but also secured by
password, and also SSL so the password cannot be sniffed.
I've followed the instructions for creating a certificate file, both
- which walks you through setting up your own CA to sign the new
certificate with, and here:
which just creates a self-signed certificate.
That last one you might have to get via the google cache, search for
openssl create self signed certificate and it's the top result.
Both techniques end up by doing this:
cat host.cert host.key > host.pem
to create a file that contains both the key and the certificate.
monit -I -v starts up OK, but when I browse to it it spits out this
monit: check_preverify(): SSL connection rejected because certificate
verification has failed -- Error 20
monit: embed_accepted_ssl_socket(): Openssl engine error:
a brief google search tells me that func(137) is
ENGINE_R_INVALID_CMD_NAME and reason(178) is ENGINE_F_ENGINE_CTRL_CMD
but apart from that I'm out of my depth.
My test config file starts with:
set httpd port 2812
and I'm using monit 4.3.
I also have a feature request: it would be useful if there was a
command line flag to tell monit to NOT do service stops / starts /
restarts, so config files can be tested. I can't run my fully featured
config file as an unprivileged user because of the ICMP checks.
