If necessary, you can disable HTTP or HTTPS support. If disabling HTTP, you must first configure a self-signed or custom certificate in Address Manager.

To disable HTTP or HTTPS support:

  1. Select the Administration tab. Tabs remember the page you last worked on, so select the tab again to ensure you're on the Administration page.
  2. Under User Management, click Secure Access.
  3. Under General, complete the following:
    • Select Server—by default, this is the IP address of a standalone Address Manager server. If running Address Manager in replication, use the drop-down menu to select the IP address of Primary or Standby Address Manager servers.
    • HTTP—from the drop-down menu, select Disable and continue with step 4. If disabling HTTPS, you must select Enable. You cannot disable HTTPS if HTTP is configured to redirect to HTTPS.
    • HTTPS—from the drop-down menu, select Disable and continue with step 5.
  4. Under Server Certificate Settings, complete the following:
    • If using a self-signed certificate, select Self-Signed. Under Self-Signed Certificate, ensure the fields are populated with the correct values. Add a comment if necessary.
    • If using a custom certificate, select Custom, then select Reapply.
  5. Click Update. The Confirm Web Access Configuration opens.
  6. Under Confirm Configuration, verify your changes.
    Listed changes will include the IP address of the Address Manager server, HTTPS or HTTPS status (enable/disable), and certificate type.
  7. Click Yes. The Address Manager server will be temporarily unavailable as the changes are committed and the server restarts.
Result:
  1. Log in to Address Manager once the configuration is compete.
    Note: After modifying HTTP or HTTPS, your browser might warn you about an unknown or invalid certificate. This warning will cease once you accept the certificate and log in to Address Manager.
  2. From the certificate warning, proceed to the site. Depending on your browser, this might entail clicking a button or creating an exception.
Resetting HTTP service
Note: If you are unable to reach your Address Manager server via HTTP or HTTPS, you can restore HTTP service from the Address Manager Administration Console. For details, refer to Resetting HTTP service.
