https access

Hello,

is it possible to run Volumio in secure https mode ?

What settings in which files need to be changed ?

Thanks

Ralf

Thanks to willy-tech.de/https-in-nginx-einrichten/
I managed to change it.

Volumio can be accessed now by http and https

  1. ssh to volumio and change
sudo mkdir /etc/nginx/ssl
sudo openssl req -x509 -nodes -days 365 -newkey rsa:2048 -keyout /etc/nginx/ssl/nginx.key -out /etc/nginx/ssl/nginx.crt
chmod 0600 /etc/nginx/ssl/*

2.change nginx.conf to

user root users;
worker_processes  1;

#error_log  logs/error.log;
error_log  /var/log/nginx/error.log  notice;
#error_log  logs/error.log  info;

#pid        logs/nginx.pid;


events {
    worker_connections  1024;
}


http {
    include       mime.types;
    default_type  application/octet-stream;


    #access_log  logs/access.log  main;
access_log off;
    sendfile        on;
    #keepalive_timeout  0;
    keepalive_timeout  65;

    gzip  off;
    proxy_buffering off;
    fastcgi_keep_conn on;
    
    #start server1 section
    server {
        listen       80;
 	listen 443 ssl;
        ssl_certificate /etc/nginx/ssl/nginx.crt; 
        ssl_certificate_key /etc/nginx/ssl/nginx.key; 
        ssl_protocols       TLSv1 TLSv1.1 TLSv1.2; 
        ssl_ciphers         HIGH:!aNULL:!MD5; 

        access_log  /var/log/nginx/access.log;
        location / {
            root   /var/www;

How did you manage to get a working certificate?

See #1 and reference link

Hi Rasti
I’ve been trying to get this working for the last couple of days with no success.
Are you still active on this forum? Do you mind if I post my attempts so far and hopefully you could reveiw them and advise where I am getting unstuck?
Thanks!

While this approach has its technical validity, it has some shortcomings (you are using a self signed certificate, which will result in a browser warning).
I would like to remind that we worked 2 years on making https connection possible with MyVolumio. While there are other ways of reaching this result, using MyVolumio remote connection (via myvolumio.org) is the most user friendly way (and secure, since all traffic is encrypted)

Hey Michelangelo
I have ended up subscribing to MyVolumio. But I am having a little trouble justifying the financial committment. Maybe I can offer my reason for wanting a https connection. I also run the very popular iot platiform homeassistant, which you probably know integrates nicely with Volumio as a media player. A nicer user experience via hass is running Volumio inside of an iframe. An iframe card is hass’ ability to run a website within a window within hass’ ui. Unfortunately if Hass is running on an https connection; an embedded iframe’s content must also be served up as https. Thus my desire for Volumio to run on https. So my particular traffic would only ever be within my home network. MyVolumio offers a suite of solutions but my requirement is very targetted. I wish there was a slightly cheaper subscription that would let me achieve my objective.
Congratulations on Volumio - its wonderful!!
Best

Hi @michelangelo. Are you able to send me a private message, so I can ask something of you please? Thanks! Milster
