create_ssl_cert — create a self-signed SSL certificate


/opt/msys/ecelerity/bin/create_ssl_cert { service } { hostname } { prefix } [ user ]


During installation, self-signed SSL certificates valid for one year are created. Use this command to create a new certificate when the original expires. When a certificate expires, you will get an error message.

To create a new certificate, first stop the appropriate service and remove the old certificate. Then issue the create_ssl_cert command:

shell> /opt/msys/ecelerity/bin/create_ssl_cert service hostname
prefix user

The parameters passed to this command are as follows:


Currently, only this service can be specified with this command:

  • msyspg - Postgresql Server

    During installation, you can choose to use SSL for PostgreSQL.


Specify the hostname of the machine that hosts the service for which you are creating a certificate.


For the msyspg service, use /opt/msys/3rdParty/share/postgresql.


For the msyspg service, use msyspg. If you do not specify a user, the user defaults to ecuser.
