By default, OpenMediaVault web administration console can be accessed through standard, insecure connection. But, with a little tweak we can enable the SSL/TLS secure connection on OpenMediaVault. This tutorial will show you how to enable the SSL/TLS Secure Connection on OpenMediaVault server.
Step 1. Create a self sign certificate.
Open the web administration page and go to certificates section under System menu. Just in case you need it, the default username is admin and the password is openmediavault.
Click SSL and then click Add and select create. Enter the required information displayed there.
Click Save to save the new self-signed ssl certificate. Now you have a new certificate to be used for the next step.
Step 2. Enable Secure Connection
Go to General Settings under System menu and click Web administration. Now enable the SSL/TLS and you may also force the SSL connection if you like.
Now your settings will look like this
Don’t forget to select the newly created certificate on the certificate section. Now save the configuration.
Once you save your configuration, now you must change the way you connect to OpenMediaVault. Make sure you use “https” in front of the address bar.
