Running Odoo with nginx in https mode

Default Odoo starts in http mode, not secure. To run Odoo with nginx and secure HTTPS mode, we would guide you for some steps:

    • Step -1
Please install Nginx and odoo if you already have nothing to worry about it. Kindly check that you have installed Nginx and it’s working perfectly.
1
sudo apt-get install nginx
    • Step -2
Now we are going to create SSL certificate for help us in https.for that now go to /etc/nginx/sit-available this location .
1
sudo openssl genrsa -des3 -passout pass:odoo -out server.temp.key 2048
OpenSSL is used to generate an RSA private key and Certificate Signing Request(CSR). Here we use 2048 bit RSA key which is encypted using Triple DES(Data Encryption Standard).
 
1
sudo openssl req -new -passin pass:odoo -key server.temp.key -out server.csr
Now we are going to add some details so our key will be used for a certificate authority like Verisign or Thawte. Now we are remove stored key. Using this command:
1
sudo openssl rsa -in server.temp.key -out server.key
Now we remove server.temp.key

1
sudo rm server.temp.key
1
sudo openssl x509 -req -days 365 -in server.csr -signkey server.key -out server.crt
Now we are going to create key validation for 365 days.
    • Step -3
Now we are going to add this certificate in to default file on Nginx site-available. Please copy server.csr and server.key file and past into site-available location.
1
sudo cp server.key ../sites-available/
1
sudo cp server.csr ../sites-available/
Now please take backup of your default file.
1
sudo tar -cvf backup.tar default
Now open default file into Geditor
1
sudo gedit default

add_header Strict-Transport-Security max-age=2592000;
rewrite ^/.*$ https://$host$request_uri? permanent;
This will always send your request on https when you type in http. Please do this kind of necessary changes after that Now restart Odoo and Nginx.
1
sudo service nginix restart

sudo service odoo-server restart
We have tested on POSBOX and Odoo perfectly working. Feel free to contact us for any queries. Thanks.

You have to pass the file path rightly.
