Information Enabling SSL Please


#1

Hi All,

Please excuse this naive request for some additional information regarding the use of SSL. I have read through the instructions to enable this but I am unsure regarding the DNS records.

I have a website: https://www.uasimagery.com
Do I have to create a subdomain? Something like: webodm.uasimagery.com
What sort of DNS record do I need to add? A, CNAME, INFO, @ ??? Does this record need to point to the https??

Then I understand I need to open ports 443 and 80.

Sorry my experience with this is somewhat limited. Any direction would be much appreciated.

Tim

You most likely need a subdomain.

You need an A record pointing to the IP address of the server running WebODM. Both port 443 and 80 should be open on that server.

Then follow https://github.com/OpenDroneMap/WebODM#enable-ssl to enable SSL.

Thanks for the information. I have tried to get the subdomain working but to no avail… If I didnt already have a website, how and where would I set up the DNS record?

Depends on the provider you registered your domain with. Check with their tech support / documentation.
