Client certificates require nginx restart

December 06, 2010 05:42AM
I have setup nginx as a ssl reverse proxy for tomcat. I am doing matching based on client DN like that:

ssl on;
ssl_certificate /etc/ssl/server.crt;
ssl_certificate_key /etc/ssl/server.key;
ssl_client_certificate /etc/ssl/certs/ca.crt;
ssl_verify_client on;

location /client2 {
if ($ssl_client_s_dn = "/C=US/ST=OH/O=TEST.US/OU=ADM/CN=client2") {

Everything works fine except that I have to restart nginx every time new certificate is imported into a client browser. I would like to make them work without restarting nginx. Is it possible or am I doing something wrong ? Thanks in advance for any help
