Configuring the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)

You must enable SSL to start your instance properly.


  1. Review the security information in Enabling SSL for outbound web services.
  2. Assign a certificate to your HTTP server in Digital Certificate Manager (DCM) on the IBM i Web server machine. Without assigning a certificate, your WebSphere Commerce instance will not start. For more information, see Digital Certificate Manager.
