Trouble w cert on 1st ucp login

(Jbottum) #1

On step 6 of UCP install and I can’t login into UCP using safari. I get “the website did not accept the certificate unknown”. I have 2 cert options and neither works. I had some trouble with my install. I was thinking about starting over. Can I erase my current nodes and start again?

Hi jbottum,

You certainly have the option of of erasing the nodes and starting again; just use the “–fresh-install” option when using the ucp install command. There should be no issues with that for the license (trial or paid).

In terms of figuring out the cert issue, how are you going about installing your current cert options? Are you following the basic instructions for adding a cert ( )? You will have to create a volume called ucp-server-certs with the 3 ca.pem/cert.pem/key.pem files specified, and then use the “–external-ucp-ca” option when using the ucp install command.
