How to configure VP Server’s Content Repository accept HTTPS connection

Starting from v16.0 the on-premises VP Server comes with a new module called Content Repository, which is responsible to support the new VP Form features. By default the Content Repository is configured for HTTP connection only. To make the Content Repository works with HTTPS connection you will need to adjust the configuration in the following way:

  1. Shutdown VP Server.
  2. Go to %VP Server%/webserver/webapps/ROOT/WEB-INF/node folder.
  3. Edit the content-repository.conf by adding the https section with your security key and certificate. Also modify the vpserver.url by changing the protocol to https.
    {
        "https": {
            "key": "/ssl/abc.com.key",
            "cert": "/ssl/abc.com.crt"
        },
        "vpserver": {
            "url": "https://server.abc.com:1999/"
        },
        "database": {
            "type": "nedb",
            "path": "db/"
        }
    }
  4. Save the change and close the file.
  5. Startup VP Server.

After that your on-premises VP Server support VP Form under HTTPS connection.
