I can't recall but I think if you use 8.0.3 the error would offer
more explanation. Bug 1321 was related to SSL support on windows. The
error you are getting isn't a bug. It's basically telling you it can't
find the postgresql.key and postgresql.crt.
For creating SSL certs I've always used the MySQL example at
You can ignore the last part about setting up my.cnf. Instead of doing
the "replace ./demoCA $DIR -- $DIR/openssl.cnf" as they suggest just
manually open your openssl.cnf file and change the ./demoCA to the
location of your openssl.cnf file.
Once finished rename some files:
cacert.pem => root.crt
cakey.pem => root.key
server-key.pem => server.key
server-cert.pem => server.crt
client-key.pem => postgresql.key
client-cert.pem => postgresql.crt
Place the postgresql.* files into the ~/.postgresql directory on the
So that answers a).
b) The client shouldn't be looking for root.crt
c) That should do it. If you have any more questions feel free to email
me off the list and I'll see what else ya need help with.
