    Server 16 does not start with SSL Certificate Installed

    fishtech

      I have FileMaker Server version 16.0.2 running on Mac OSX 10.12.6.

       

      I have a wildcard certificate from GoDaddy. The certificate installs fine and I see a green padlock in FileMaker connections and webirect connections are secure.

       

      However with the certificate installed the server does not boot correctly on restart. The FileMaker logs show:

       

      Server Events  Error  701  Database Server process has terminated abnormally

       

       

      I can get the server to start by running the following 2 commands in Terminal:

       

      sudo launchctl unload /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.filemaker.fms.plist

      sudo launchctl load /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.filemaker.fms.plist

       

       

      I see the same behavior on 2 different servers at my location.

       

      Any suggestions?

       

      Thanks,
