How can I securely manage Plone remotely over SSL?
« Back to Table of Contents
One way is to set your plone installation to run behind apache (over SSL), secure the plone install so that it only listens on non-routable interfaces, and never log in to plone over a non secure connection. So for instance, if you're running linux, you could log into your server using SSH and:
- install plone using the universal installer (which has one server and two clients)
- change the client1 and client2 configuration to only listen on the localhost (check the .conf files for how to set this up)
- set up apache with SSL, mod_rewrite and mod_proxy, see http://plone.org/documentation/how-to/apache-ssl
