Configuring SSL between load balancer and web app nodes

Configuring SSL encryption between your load balancer and each web application node is not required, but if you plan to do it, you need to acquire an SSL certificate for each node.

To set up SSL encryption to each node:
  1. On each webapp node, enable SSL by assigning the following startup properties:
    jive set httpd.ssl_enabled True
    jive set httpd.ssl_certificate_file /path/to/your/crt/file
    jive set httpd.ssl_certificate_key_file /path/to/your/key/file
  2. Change your load balancer pool's members to reflect the new SSL port. For example:
  3. Restart httpd on all the web application nodes.
