VMmanager 6: Administrator guide

Connecting the SSL certificate


To make the server with VMmanager available via HTTPS protocol, you will need an SSL certificate. You can purchase an SSL certificate in any certificate issuing service or issue a free certificate of Let's Encrypt.  

Connection process

  1. Go to SettingsSystem information Connect the certificate.
  2. Enter any SSL certificate name. The certificate will be displayed in the VMmanager interface under this name.
  3. Copy the contents of the SSL certificate public key in pem, crt or cer format.
  4. Copy the contents of the SSL certificate chain file. If the chain consists of two files, enter the intermediate certificate first and then the root certificate from the new paragraph and without a space.
  5. Copy the contents of Private key in key format.
  6. Press Add.

After entering the data, VMmanager checks if the private key corresponds to the certificate. If the check is successful, the certificate is connected to the server.

To change the connected certificate, go to Settings System information Re-connect the certificate and enter the new certificate details.

Viewing certificate details

To view details of the connected certificate, go to SettingsSystem information → SSL certificate and press the certificate name.
