Configuring WebEA to Trust Your Own Certificate Authority (CA)

An SSL certificate can be signed with your own Certificate Authority (CA). This allows trust to be added to clients to avoid security warnings. The instructions for adding a CA to a client vary by operating system or browser used.

See Using Your Own Certificate Authority (CA) for instructions on generating a CA and using it to sign server certificates.

WebEA uses PHP and cURL to communicate with a Pro Cloud Server. To enable PHP/curl to trust a new CA:

  • Add/edit 'curl.cainfo' in php.ini to point to either a single root CA certificate or a CA bundle file (this is multiple concatenated crt files)

    ; A default value for the CURLOPT_CAINFO option. This is required to be an
    ; absolute path.
  • Restart Apache/PHP


  • This does not configure the website itself for HTTPS access. For details on doing this, please refer to the documentation for your web server.
