SSL Certificate Error


  • Hi,

    Please help me on SSL Certificate for a Web Application.

    Issue: I am unable to open the site with Https, even after complete configuration of SSL certificate.


    I have created and configured the SSL certificate by following the steps in the below URL, but still I am not able to open the site with https.

    I have added the web application to the local host and tried to access the site using Https, it is working.

    Please let me know if I am making any mistake here



    Thanks & Regards, Sudheer

  • Do you change the hostname of Web App, if yes, please modify the regedit to disable the look backcheck.

  • Hi Liu,

    Below are the action points done till now

    1)I have generated Certificate and next licensed the certificate by  client.

    2)Added the certificate to SharePoint Certificate store.

    3)Added the certificate to trust management in Central Administration

    4)Configure IIS Binding

    5)Configure AAM

    We have hosted the web application in local host and tried to access using https, it works and opening with https protocol.

    But, here I need without hosting the web application in the local host, it should open with https protocol.



    Thanks & Regards, Sudheer

  • .In Step5, you change the URL Protocol, Host and Port, and it is different with the default of Web Application. After that, please go to IIS and add the bind in the related Web Sites. 

    If you change the Hostname during AAM Configuration, you need to modify the regedit.

  • Hi Naga,

    Please make sure you have created host (which you wan to use) on DNS. 

    Make the IP address same with SharePoint server.
