I have a wildcard SSL certificate that I’d like to add to my Wowza install. I followed the guide here: https://www.wowza.com/docs/how-to-request-an-ssl-certificate-from-a-certificate-authority, but only the parts about importing certificates and configuring VHOST.xml. I ran the following commands:
keytool -import -alias root -trustcacerts -file intermediate.crt -keystore ssl.mydomain.com.cert keytool -import -alias wowza -trustcacerts -file mydomain.crt -keystore ssl.mydomain.com.cert
The first to add the CA’s certificate, and the second to add the certificate specific to my domain name.
In VHost.xml, I removed the comment tags from the SSL vhost. It was pretty much all ready to go, I just changed the KeyStorePath to reflect the same name I used above, and added my password to KeyStorePassword. I also changed the port from 443 to 4433.
Wowza starts up fine, but when I try to access the sever in the browser to simply return the version number I get nothing. I enabled DEBUG logging and am seeing “SSL handshake failed messages.” So something went wrong, I’m guessing in the import part. Can anyone give me any clues here?
