Password Server v2.5 install fails with no HTTPS binding


Password Server v2.5 fails if not configured with an HTTPS binding displaying the following error.





As of Password Server v2.5 the use of SSL is now a requirement. You need a valid SSL certificate and HTTPS binding in IIS.

Configure an HTTPS Binding in IIS using your SSL certificate.

  1. On the computer hosting your CA, on the Windows desktop, click Start, point to Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.

  2. In the Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager dialog box, in the Connections pane, expand your computer name, expand Sites, and then click the Site where the AuthAnvil Password Server will be installed.

  3. In the Actions pane, click Bindings.

  4. In the Site Bindings dialog box, click Add.

  5. In the Add Site Binding dialog box, on the Type menu, select https.

  6. In the SSL Certificate list, select the entry that matches the name of your computer, and then click OK.

  7. In the Site Bindings dialog box, click Close. 

Once the HTTPS Binding is setup you will be able to proceed with the installation of Password Server v2.5.



Password Server v2.5 and newer unless otherwise posted.
