SSL and Domain Names

After successful installation, File/Folder Shares can be tested without domain name and SSL certificates but however for production, you will require one.

Domain Names

NirvaShare requires two domains, one for admin console app and the other one for user facing share service app or user app. It would be better to have two sub domains something like below. You can use any name of your choice.

  • https://admin.yourdomain.com
  • https://share.yourdomain.com

Note: NirvaShare services of Admin console uses port 8080 and user app uses port 8081

SSL Certificates

For a certificate, make sure to pick one of the below approach.

  • Obtain CA certificate for your domain from external authority.
  • Use certbot with LetsEncrypt for free certificate.
