This doesn’t seem to work on the GL-AR750S. Particularly, I noticed that the lighthttpd.conf file gets overwritten with its original contents, post-reboot. Even before rebooting, but after restarting lighthttpd, I couldn’t access the admin portal on https. I also tried changing the default port from 80 to 443.
Sorry to drag up an old thread but I was trying to add an SSL/HTTPS access to the dashboard of one of these handy routers - mine being GL-MT300N-V2,
I followed the above steps and the files where there after reboot but I got the following error when browsing to GL-MT300N-V2 dashboard
It seems as though the certificate is not accepted because it’s generated by itself?. Is there a way to get a recognized third party cert installed? I recently upgraded the firmware to 3.102 and see some new plugins like ACME (for issuing certificates)
Can someone put a complete step by step on how to configure to access HTTPS
UI in AR750 & AR750S from scratch? I am having trouble getting it to work fine.
The “dagee71” solution doesn’t work for me.
I have 3.104 on AR-750S Firmware and 3.102 on AR750 .
So there is no easy (for non technical people) way to enable only https for the web admin panel? I mean easier than the instructions above, like maybe a toggle button in the admin panel.
By the way, is the web admin panel (192.168.8.1) accessible via wan also or only lan by default? If I am connected to the internet via ISP or VPN and access web admin panel with http, can ISP or VPN see the password I unput for the admin panel and for wifi?
I can login with https as well! I’d need lighttpd-mod-redirect, so that on attempts to login via the Web UI I’ll get redirected automatically to https, making http login impossible.
Tried to install the lighttpd-mod-redirect package from Openwrt 19.07, but that made the Web UI inaccessible, had to uninstall it via ssh - so we’d need the gl inet guys to compile it for FW 3.201 for AR750S. It IS available for Beryl…
