"Error while creating certificate store: failed to load X509 key pair: tls: failed to find any PEM data

I'm having trouble launching traefik correctly. I already have multiple containers running with nginx reverse proxies and wanted to see about removing nginx and using Traefik

My traefik config file looks like this:

    address = ":80"
      to = "websecure"
      scheme = "https"

    address = ":443"

  dashboard = true

  watch = true
  network = "traefik"

  filename = "traefik_dynamic.toml"
  watch = true

I have the dynamic file looking like this:

  users = [
  rule = "Host(`my_domain.com`)"
  entrypoints = ["web"]
  middlewares = ["simpleAuth"]
  service = "api@internal"

      certFile = "/domain.cert"
      keyFile = "/domain.key"

When I launch traefik I mount the ssl crt and key to the route of the file system and have ran docker exec and can see them there. So I'm not sure what is wrong here? Even when I continue past the https error I just see 404 page not found

Hello @jonny7 ,

Welcome to the community,

From your topic title the format of the cert file is not compatible. Double check the certificate is in PEM format.

Your router is configured for entrypoint web. You configured that entrypoint to redirect to https. There is no router on the websecure entrypoint, so you get a 404.

Either change the entrypoints on the router to websecure, or remove entypoints from the router altogether.

Hi @cakiwi

Thanks for the help, so the first issue was a pesky spelling oversight :neutral_face:

I did notice after I posted that my [http.routers.api] entrypoint was web, so I updated that to websecure & I also removed the entrypoints = ["websecure"]. Both still resulted in the 404. I just today started looking at Traefik, so it's a bit to get used to :slight_smile:

So I'm not entirely sure what I've done wrong

Ah ok, so I added [http.routers.api.tls] to my [http.routers.api] block. So I get the basic auth prompt, but I always get a 401 now.

Updated, Ok, I missed the piece on basic auth requiring a SHA encryption
