I have a server where it's running Apache and Tomcat. The front end app (built in angularjs) is running in Apache, there I installed the SSL cert and it is working fine, I can access with HTTPS and the browser trust on the cert. But then this app is consuming some services from another app that is in the SAME server but it's running with Tomcat 8 (as it's an app built in Java).
The issue is that the browser (chrome) is not allowing the site in https consume services from another server (actually it's running in the same server but it's a different app) that is not using SSL. So I'm trying to use the same SSL that I'm using in Apache in Tomcat. BUt I cannot make it work. As per I was reading, I neet to add the certificate to the keystore, but when I try to do that, the cert is listed as trustedCertEntry and as per the documentation is beucause I'm not using the same alias that I used to generate the private key.... But when I create the private key I didn't use a alias, so I'm not sure how to fix this...
In Summary: One server where an app in Apache (port 80) and other app in Tomcat(port 8080) are running. In Apache the setting is ok to use SSL I generate the private key with:
openssl genrsa -out mydomain.key 2048 openssl req -new -key mydomain.key -out mydomain.csr
And then I tried to add the cert to the keystore with
keytool -import -keystore mydomain -alias mydomain -file [certificate file]
But it's listed as trustedCertEntry and the tomcat is not working with HTTPS in port 8080 or 8443.
What I'm missing? Can I do this with one cert? Or do I need two even if they are on the same server?
