    Using 3CX 14 with Abyss: where / how do I add or replace an SSL certificate after installation? Public SSL certs expire every year or two. Am I back to the manual method here?

    For the time being the only official way of doing this is by backing up everything, uninstalling, reinstalling, inserting the new certificate during the installation, restore the backup.

    Thanks. I managed to convert from a self-signed certificate to a certificate from a public certification authority using the v11 instructions from the above link and some guessing about how Abyss prioritizes certificates. The tricky part is extracting the private and public keys from a Windows .pfx file. I blogged how to do that: http://www.mcbsys.com/blog/2016/03/extr ... -pfx-file/. Be sure to test with an SSL checker (e.g. https://sslanalyzer.comodoca.com/) to make sure the correct certificate is provided by Abyss. Not for the faint of heart--the uninstall/reinstall may be easier.

    Would be nice to see certificate management available in the UI or at least as well-documented batch scripts.
