Hello,

I am running Hudson as a service on my ubuntu install, it is using an
LDAP server to allow everyone to login with their windows credentials.
As a result we want our hudson server to run under HTTPS to make sure
that logins using these windows logins are lovely and secure.

What would be the easiest way to get the hudson service to use https?

Cheers

Nord, James

Create a self signed cert using the java keytool and

Java -jar hudson.war --httpsPort=443 --httpsKeyStore=/path/to/keystore --httpsKeyStorePassword=myPassowrd

Do you mean your browser gives you an SSL error or Hudson does?

If its a self-signed certificate, you'll need to install it on your PC
to avoid the SSL error on browsers...

Note that if you are OK with a self-signed certificate, you can just let
Jenkins generate one:

$ java -jar hudson.war --httpsPort=443

No need to do the messy keytool stuff or anything.

Happens that hudson anyway respond only at http request, if I do an
https request, hudson doesnt answers.
In any case: if I put only --httpsPort=8443 or i put --httpsKeyStore=/
path/to/keystore --httpsKeyStorePassword=myPassowrd in my HUDSON_ARGS

Does this require restarting Hudson afterward for the settings to take affect?
