    No hosted files visible after importing an SSL certificate

      Summary

      No hosted files visible after importing an SSL certificate

      Product

      FileMaker Server

      Version

      13.0.5.520

      Operating system version

      Win2012

      Description of the issue

      I created a request for a certificate (as per the command-line instructions). I got a COMODO PositiveSSL certificate.

      I imported the certificate (as per the command-line instructions) with out any problems or error messages.

      I turned on 'require secure connections' on the admin console, then restarted the server.

      On restart, the server started as normal, and the admin console reported that all databases were open and hosted normally.

      However, filemaker clients could see the host, but no hosted files. Similarly the WebD homepage opened as normal, but did not list any files.

      Turning off 'require secure connections' and restarting returned the hosting to normal. Eventually, I removed the 'serverCustom.pem' file from the server's Cstore folder, turned on 'require secure connections' on the admin console, then restarted the server—this is now back to using 'secure' connections using the server's default certificate.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      As above

      Expected result

      Databases are hosted using my own encryption certificate.

      Actual result

      The server appears to be serving the databases, but none are visible in the host list of any FM client, or on the WebD homepage.

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      None.

      Workaround

      Use insecure connections.
