    Default http vs https vs mixed

    I am using mixed right now seems like the bare min for a secure site but would like to know if there is a large preformace hit if i switch to https. Also is there a way to make the switch without a reinstall

    ps excuse me if this is covered in the exceptional documents provided on this site.

    Default Performance depends on usage

    For a small site, using https mode probably won't be too much of an impact - depends on your hardware, mostly.

    To switch modes, as the zimbra user:

    zmtlsctl https

    This assumes you're using the self-signed cert generated during the install, in /opt/zimbra/ssl/ssl/server/server.crt. If you wish to use a different cert, include it on the command line:

    zmtlsctl https <cert_file>

    Once done, restart tomcat:

    tomcat restart
