We have been running confluence 5.6.3 over http. Now we find that we have issues with the Office connector when not running over SSL.
I wanted to test this on our sandbox instance, which has no DNS name, I followed the instructions here: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CONF56/Running+Confluence+Over+SSL+or+HTTPS
If I enter the URL like this "https://<IP ADDRESS>:8090 I get an SSL connection error: ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR
When I generated the self signed cert I entered the IP Address when asked for "first and last name".
Could this be the problem?
I generated my keypair/cert like this:
keytool -genkeypair -alias tomcat -keyalg RSA -keystore /var/atlassian/atlassian.keystore
Enter keystore password:
Re-enter new password:
What is your first and last name?
What is the name of your organizational unit?
What is the name of your organization?
What is the name of your City or Locality?
What is the name of your State or Province?
What is the two-letter country code for this unit?
Is CN=<REPLACED>:8090, OU=Unknown, O=Unknown, L=Unknown, ST=Unknown, C=Unknown correct? (type "yes" or "no")
Enter key password for <tomcat>:
(RETURN if same as keystore password):
In the above I have replaced my actual IP with "<REPLACED>".
My server.xml looks like this:
<Connector port="8443" maxHttpHeaderSize="8192" maxThreads="150" minSpareThreads="25" enableLookups="false" disableUploadTimeout="true" acceptCount="100" scheme="https" secure="true" clientAuth="false" sslProtocol="TLS" SSLEnabled="true" URIEncoding="UTF-8" keystorePass="MY_PASSWORD_USED_WHEN_GENERATING_KEYPAIR" keystoreFile="/var/atlassian/atlassian.keystore"/>
HTTPS connection goes to port 8443 and not to 8090. In the document you mentioned look at step 4:
Did you try to connect to https://<MY_BASE_URL>:8443 ?
