I've done a search in this forum for "SSL" and it returns no result. So I'll start this thread:
Has anyone posted a step by step guideline on how to implement SSL for FileMaker Server? If not, it would be very helpful, at least for me.
I am familiar with generating the request from the FileMaker Server Admin Console. I am familiar with submitting the generated pem key to the GoDaddy service, who then generates a certificate for a price. I am familiar with placing said certificate in the correct folder on the server. However, that's where I leave off. There's some final steps missing, I don't know what they are. But we need to somehow "connect" the domain name we submitted when buying the certificate (www.something.com) , to the actual server we are using (it only has a static IP address), somehow. No idea what those steps would be. Any insight would be appreciated.

I've written a PowerShell script to allow you to get a free SSL certificate from Let's Encrypt to use with FileMaker Server. You can schedule this to run every few months and renew your certificate automatically. Now there's no reason to keep using that default certificate. Check out the post for instructions!

EDIT: One compatibility note for everyone - While it looks like it's all compatible with FileMaker Pro 13-15, only FileMaker Go 15 is compatible. FileMaker Go 14 is unable to connect with these certificates installed. I'd recommend using FM Go 15 anyway, but it's something to be aware of if you're still using FM Go 14.

We have discovered a possible issue with the Admin/Config app. We'd appreciate your thoughts.
We turned on SSL by checking the SSL box in the enclosed screenshot. When attempting a sync the client received "The MirrorSync URL returned an unexpected response. Check your URL, verify that the server is running properly, and try again. Address: https://mirrorsync3.oda.state.or.us/MirrorSync/sync". So we went thru the config again and found the SSL box unchecked. We cannot get the SSL checkbox to stay checked.
We did modify the MirrorSync Customization script to set the $$MIRRORSYNC_URL with https and that worked. We are however, wondering if there is something awry with our install or this specific Configuration.
We are running MirrorSync 3.1.

I just installed FMS 15 on a Windows 2008 R2 machine - everything checked out and the install went smooth. I then purchased a Wildcard SSL certificate from Go Daddy. I generated a CSR from the FMS Admin Console and pasted the encrypted text into Go Daddy's text box to setup my SSL. Here is the problem:
The CSR generated from the FMS Console set the domain as mydomain.com instead of fmpserver.mydomain.com
Where does Filemaker Server Console get the information used to generate the CSR?
How do I get FMS to generate a CSR with the correct sub-domain? It is a FQDN (sub) that resolves directly to the Public IP on my server.
Thanks in advance for your help!
