The WebServer in IP-Symcon is used to make the WebFront available through the browser. The default configuration is as follows:
Optionally, it is possible to active the basic authentication and achieve an additional protection. Authentication takes place before the login page is displayed on the WebFront. If you want to give each WebFront configurator a password, you can do this in the configuration of the respective WebFront configurator.
The option "Create log files" creates in the "logs" directory of IP Symcon for each WebServer a file named access_12345.log. The number 12345 stands for the InstanzID of your WebServer. The created log files are compatible to the Webalizer and can be analyzed graphically.
To use SSL two files are required, that provide the certificates. The WebServer reads the certificate paths only at the start of IP-Symcon so that any changes to the options A/B, require a restart. There are two possible places where the SSL certificates are sought.
Option A: /cert/ssl.cer; /cert/ssl.key
Option B: /cert/12345.cer; /cert/12345.key; /cert/12345.pem
Under Option A, the existing standard certificates are used. These are always updated via LiveUpdate and should therefore not be changed by users. When user certificates should be used, option B must be chosen. To do so the certificate (id.cer), the key file (id.key) and optionally the root certificate (id.pem) must be created. "id" in this case indicates the InstanzID of the appropriate WebServer instance.
