Create New Self Signed Certificate - Powershell

Recommended Posts


Updates to the Chrome browser in the first half of 2017 has generated security warnings, if using the Self Signed certificate supplied with your original install of Passwordstate.  This process generates and binds a new Self-Signed certificate that overcomes these new security warnings.  



- Windows 8.1 or higher, Server 2012 or higher

- Powershell 4.0 must be installed on your web server, preferably Powershell 5.0.  To check which version you are running, open Powershell and type in $host.  


If you need to upgrade Powershell, you can do so via these links: 

Powershell 4.0 - https://www.microsoft.com/en-au/download/details.aspx?id=40855

Powershell 5.0 - https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=50395


Step 1:

On your Passwordstate web server, download and extract the CreateCertificate.zip file from https://www.clickstudios.com.au/downloads/CreateCertificate.zip to a folder of your choice


Step 2:

On your Passwordstate web server, open Powershell ISE "as Administrator" and load the CreateCertificate.ps1 file you extracted in Step 1


Step 3:

On lines 2 and 3 of the script, change the $PortNumber and $URL variables as appropriate.  These values can be found in IIS on your web server.  





You should now be able to execute the script and then check your Passwordstate website is now functioning correctly.  if you have any issues, please email Click Studios on support@clickstudios.com.au
