Trying to set up a basic solid server following these instructions on the github. Generated certs using the openssl command shown in the README and had the same problem as in this forum regarding the fact that I’m logged in but not allowed to view the information.
Tried the intermediate step of just passing the ssl as a flag and now instead of getting the logged-in-but-no-permission, it logs in and remains on the page asking me to log in.
I will try to get a legitimate cert from Let’s Encrypt to see if the problem is just with the self issued certs but as a newcomer, this is somewhat of a barrier - I’m a Windows user so there’s no easy tool for me to grab a cert from them easily and implement it properly with the solid server. Also I’m not trying to test the Solid server for contributing purposes at the moment, so running bin/solid-test is out of scope for this particular use case.
TLDR: There should be a noob hand holding cert tutorial for Solid or at least a link to one.
