Move to SSL and the updater

Post by Spork »

The move to SSL has broken the updater if you don't make a change to your config. In ./data/mwconfig.txt, please change the UPDATEURL= line to be

UPDATEURL=https\://www.mekwars.org/update.

Additionally, if you have an older version of java, you will either need to update, or you will need to import the letsencrypt certificates to your java keystore.

Huh? I'm not a computer guru. I tried to do what you recommended and got sent to Discord. Is that where the site and players have gone??? I even see my name there but can not log in.

Update issue is fixed. You can download the new client from mekwars.org and you will not have the update loop issue.

On to other problems.

For those who (like me) may be on a computer you do not fully control and who cannot import the SSL certificate into java, please do the following:

delete data/mwconfig.bak
edit data/mwconfig.txt and change the updateurl to http\://www.mekwars.net/update

This will bypass SSL to get your updates.
