WebUI SSL Certificate

Postby MoZz » Thu Jun 22, 2017 5:07 pm

Hello Forum.

I have installed Deluge 1.3.15 on my server, and i have activated WebUI from the Plugin list, and both "Web Interface" and "SSL" is active.
When i have SSL active, it gives me an error, that says the connection is not safe, and i can choose to continue if i would like.

On my server its the same with crome or if i use IE browser.

I have tryed reinstalling Deluge couple of times, i read that this error means my certificates is old? - so i had to renew them (reinstall)
That did nothing.

- In the end, i just want a secure line, is it secure without SSL?
- Should i leave it on, and just accept these errors, does they matter?
- Is there an way to create my own certificates for windows server 2016, without paying big bucks or getting scammed?

Hope there is a person here, who is willing to help me out.

Best regards
M.

What you are seeing is normal.

They are used everywhere, almost everything that has a ssl web interface (home routers, switches, etc), uses one.
If you want to use a certificate, that is signed by a root certificate authority, try finding them online, they are not that expensive.

Using letsencrypt is not worth it just for deluge web interface.

So i can calm down and remove my tin foil hat, and just keep it as it is?
Its not like someone can see what im downloading, even tho it says "not safe"..
