Server 16 does not start with SSL Certificate Installed

Question asked by fishtech on Aug 4, 2017

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?
