Disabling SSL in Zoomdata

You can disable the SSL Certificate in Zoomdata by adding a parameter to the zoomdata.properties file located in the /etc/zoomdata directory. The purpose of the parameter is to disable a redirect by Spring Boot to SSL and enable you to use the HTTP port. Take the following steps to disable the SSL Certificate:

  1. From your terminal, SSH to your Zoomdata Server.
  2. Stop the Zoomdata Server service:
    sudo service zoomdata stop
  3. Use the following command to access and open the zoomdata.properties file:
    vi /etc/zoomdata/zoomdata.properties
    If the .properties file does not exist, this command will create the file.
  4. Add the following parameters into the file as new lines:
    server.port=8080
    server.ssl.enabled=false
  5. Save and exit the .properties file.
  6. Start the Zoomdata Server:
    sudo service zoomdata start

Once the Zoomdata Server has successfully restarted, you can open a new browser window and log in. You should no longer be redirected to an SSL connection.

If you have configured your firewall (bottom) then use the following URL format:

http://{IP Address of Zoomdata Server}/zoomdata

Otherwise, use the following URL format:
http://{IP Address of Zoomdata Server}:8080/zoomdata

Configuring the Firewall (for Centos)

Configure 'iptables' to accept port 8080 and to forward incoming HTTP requests on port 80 to the zoomdata server port 8080.

sudo iptables -I INPUT 1 -i eth0 -p tcp --dport 8080 -j ACCEPT
sudo iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i eth0 -p tcp --dport 80 -j DNAT --to-destination :8080
sudo service iptables save
