The following articles will walk through how to configure Cascade CMS to run over SSL:
Once the SSL connector has been enabled per those instructions, users can still access the application through the default port 8080. There are 2 options for preventing this from occurring:
Comment out the HTTP/1.1 Connector in
tomcat/conf/server.xml(thus leaving only the SSL/TLS Connector).
Force Tomcat over SSL. To do this, edit the file
<security-constraint>element just before the closing
</web-app>element. For example:
<!-- Force SSL for entire site -->
More information on configuring SSL can be found at the Apache Tomcat web site.
