3. Testing the SSL Configuration

  • After uploading the SSL certificates, it’s important to test the configuration to ensure everything works properly.
  • Follow these steps to test the SSL setup:
  • Wait for the servers in your environment to automatically restart.
  • Once the servers have restarted, open your web browser.
  • Enter the bound custom domain name (or the attached external IP address) into the browser’s address bar.
  • Instead of using the default “http://” protocol, make sure to specify “https://” for a secure connection.
  • Press Enter or click Go to load the web application.
  • If everything is configured correctly, your web application should open without any problems, indicating that the SSL setup is successful.
