The HTTPS protocol is a network protocol built based on the SSL and HTTP protocols for encrypted transfer and authentication, which is more secure than the HTTP protocol. If you want to enable HTTPS acceleration, you can do so by enabling the HTTPS feature for the playback domain name and configuring a correct and valid certificate. You can purchase a certificate from Tencent Cloud SSL Certificate Service. If you already have one, you can upload it to the LVB Console for configuration. Currently, LVB only supports the PEM format. If your certificate is in another format, you need to convert it to PEM format first. The format requirements and configuration method for the certificate are as follows:
If your certificate is issued by an intermediate CA and contains multiple certificates, the certificate content should be spliced as follows:
The HTTPS configuration will take effect in about 2 hours. Please visit the domain name about 2 hours after the certificate is submitted. If HTTPS is displayed in the address bar of the browser, the configuration is successful.
The HTTPS feature can be enabled and disabled. Once it is disabled, LVB will no longer provide HTTPS service for the domain name. If the certificate has expired, it should be replaced with a new valid one.
