  • Hi Vejovis,

    Maybe it existed a bug that failed to automatically bing the SSL in your app controller. In order to resolve the issue. you can try to uninstall the existed app controller in ARP, then re-bing the SSL during install the product. Below steps maybe can help you.

    1. Uninstall the exited app controller.

    2. Ensure fully drop the app controller, try to delete its database in SQL. then reboot your machine.

    3. Re-install your program. if it existed a default port on configure the website page, you need change another one, such as 8443.

    4. Configure SSL in IIS after completed the installation. Open your IIS, find the app controller website => right-click to change "Edit Bingding..." => choose the "Edit..." =>

    choose a invalid SSL in dropdown list "SSL certificate". => tthen choose "Browse" your product after you successfully configured the SSL.
