[Solved] Install a SSL Certificate on MediaBrowser?

My work restricts web connections to be SSL only; and must be a signed certificate. Is there a solution that I can configure a certificate into the httpd of MediaBrowser *or* setup another httpd server that redirects/tunnels locally with my machine in order to make my connection to the outside internet have TLS.

Does anyone have any idea how to do this?

Re: Install a SSL Certificate on MediaBrowser?

There are ways to do it, but it's not a simple process. There's threads here that cover it, but unfortunately the search function of the forum seems to be broken. Searching for SSL returned no posts (which is bogus, since it's in this thread). But I did find this thread when searching for certificate. It might be of assistance.

Re: Install a SSL Certificate on MediaBrowser?

There are several ways to do it, depending on the way you wish to do so...

What OS does the Serviio server you are running have installed? (Linux/Windows/MacOS/etc.)

The easiest way way I found to do it is via "Reverse Proxy with SSL offloading" under Windows 10 Pro with IIS, as described in a previous post here: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=30267

(The reason I find it easiest is because the Let's Encrypt certificate lasts a mere 90 days, but certificate rebinding can be automated through the "CertifyTheWeb" application on Windows. Removes the need for manual certificate renewal.)

There are ways to do it with other programs and OSs as well... NGINX, for example, is available for Linux, Windows, and Mac.

Re: Install a SSL Certificate on MediaBrowser?

Thank you! I was using Win 10 Pro and I did the instructions using IIS and the Reverse Proxy and successfully got MediaBrowser to use SSL from the outside internet to my server. Windows ACME Simple (WACS) is what I used for certificate generation which imported everything into IIS automatically.
