HTTPS Support


PSPDFKit Server has been deprecated and replaced by PSPDFKit Document Engine. All PSPDFKit Server and PSPDFKit for Web Server-Backed licenses will work as before and be supported until 15 May 2024 (we will contact you about license migration). To start using Document Engine, refer to the migration guide. With Document Engine, you’ll have access to robust new capabilities (read the blog for more information).

SSL/TLS support is not part of PSPDFKit Server. To secure connections, we recommend one of the following options.

If you’ve deployed to the cloud, we recommend using a load balancing solution provided by your cloud platform provider:

An alternative is to set up an NGINX server as a reverse proxy to PSPDFKit Server. You can configure NGINX to support SSL/TLS and then you can point this to your certificate. A guide for this can be found on the NGINX Reverse Proxy article.
