Plone SSL Cert install


I have Plone 4.3.1 x64 installed on a Windows 10 Pro PC on port 8080, it is accessed from a internet domain via port forward and works fine. I would like to install a SSL cert /connection.

Can someone please tell me how to get this working if it is possible.

Many Thanks


Use a reverse proxy (Apache, Nginx, Caddy etc.) doing the SSL part in front of Plone.

Thanks I'll have to google that as not sure how LOL

Will try cloudflare

Something like this (I dont use Windows, but it should be similar to Linux)

  1. Install apache in front (on the PC or another).
  2. get/install the certificate. I recommend certbot
  3. in Apache, add a rewrite rule from port 443 to 'your site' (or 81?).

Maybe similar to this (google 'the same for Windows'):

The apache rewrite rules would be something similar to this:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^/(.*)$$1 [L,P]
SSLCertificateFile /etc/letsencrypt/live/
SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/letsencrypt/live/
Include /etc/letsencrypt/options-ssl-apache.conf

Ok thanks for your help
