EIdOSSLGetMethodError in SSL enable


Recommended Posts



I followed the steps in http://www.unigui.com/doc/online_help/configure_unigui_server.htmto configure SSL.


Also, I followed these steps from Godaddy:


cert.pem is in the zip file as a long string on letters and numbers with a .crt extension
root.pem if they need it can be downloaded directly from us using these links:
Or you could use these direct links for the GoDaddy versions:
Signing Cert



But when I start the service, It stopped and server logs says: "[initWebServer]:EIdOSSLGetMethodError : Error getting SSL method. : Addr: $0077FDEC"


Any suggestion?

If you can't find help here, you can try to find help for the Indy components being used. For example, the following post may have some clues to help: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/17348345/how-can-i-create-install-a-ssl-cert-for-a-standalone-datasnap-rest-server-on-loc. It mentions a utility for generating CRT files locally and for processing what you get back from a provider like GoDaddy.

Hi everybody


The SSL problems was solved, there are a list of issues that must to be addressed:


1) If you use Godaddy's SSL files, they sent you 2 files: one files with letters and numbers (example "a44df2336d") this is the cert.pem file,  and other file that has the word "bundle" this is the root file.

2) You must to have already the KEY file.

3) rename all the files (and extensions to the expected filenames, "cert.pem", "root.pem" and "key.pem"

4) You must to copy the DDLs files (libeay32.dll and ssleay32.dll) and the PEM files

5) (Only if you are using "service" type project), add the following lines in server module (This is an issue that Farshad will fix in next release, so this step will not be necesary in the future):

  SSL.SSLOptions.RootCertFile := Self.StartPath + SSL.SSLOptions.RootCertFile;
  SSL.SSLOptions.CertFile := Self.StartPath + SSL.SSLOptions.CertFile;
  SSL.SSLOptions.KeyFile := Self.StartPath + SSL.SSLOptions.KeyFile;
6) Unblock SSL port (403) in the server's firewall
7) Ensure that your DNS has registered your domain, is can be not enought to simply redirect
That's all!!

hi every one.

i have the same problems with ClodDNS and Sectigo (comodo)

to create all necessary file do :



How to create crt+root+key pem files

This is from CloudDNS

1. order+buy Dynamic Domain Name,

For me it was hanibaaldemos.com

And you can control what is the REAL IP that represent the Domain name.

very chip very goos srvice.


1.1 create requet file + key file.

like in http://unigui.com/doc/online_help/getting-a-ssl-certificate-from.htm

               Enter all data + in common name write the domain name (for me – hanibaaldemos.com)

               Enter The encryption method – SHA1 + RSA  + 2048 key length.

1.2 ask for pem text encode.

                Keep the request file + the key file.

                I named them    hanibaaldeomscom.txt

                                And        hanibaaldemos.key

1.3 send the request file to Certificate Authority

                You will get back zip file contain:


                hanibaalmailer_com.crt (your domain name)



1.4          rename AAACertificateServices.crt to      ---> root.pem

                Rename your domain name.crt to             ---> cert.pem

                Rename hanibaaldemos.key (what you save in 1.2) to ---> key.pem

Use it as necessary.
