Web Api Self Host with SSL

Nov 20, 2013 at 3:55 PM
Any chance someone has any idea how to setup host with SSL with Web Api 2?

Can't find ClientCredentialType ...

Ok I found this link

But still nothing works.

I just need the Owin Selft Host with support for https.

Not quite.
I have a certificate setup on port 9443, with my App GUID.
But as soon as I change my startup host adress to Https, nothing works.
I have to way of knowing why my request doesn't get to the controller.

What errors does it give you?
Nov 21, 2013 at 2:20 PM
I have no error messages, The request never hits the controller.
The response code I get is 502.

Come to and we can talk about this more.

Latest update on the subject.

I get a 503 Service unavailable response now.

Seems like the HttpListener is not "listening"

I was able to validate my certificate setup on my port (9443) with a separate project hosting a simple httplistener.
The requests are coming through.

Finally got it to work!!
My error was with the url for the Startup.
I was using "https://localhost:9443/" Instead, I need to use this: "https://+:9443/" Hope it helps someone.

Dude, you saved my afternoon! i also had this problem where it would not listen on any external hostname or even on the same machine with the external ip. setting the host as http://+:port solved everything.

it seems obvious now but i think alot of people get stuck in this situation, there are a fair few threads on SO about similar issues. Maybe this can be highlighted in the comments of documentation? :)
