Chef 12: any cher-server-ctl <command> returns connection reset by peer - ssl_connect

Hey…

Its my first time using chef. so i followed step by step too install it using this tutorial. https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-a-chef-12-configuration-management-system-on-ubuntu-14-04-servers

for some weird reason i cant seem to get past after reconfiguring command.

sudo chef-server-ctl reconfigure

i was ready to create a new user with the command below… and i keep getting the same reset error.

chef-server-ctl user-create username firstname lastname email password -f admin.pem

*ERROR: Errno::ECONNRESET: Connection reset by peer - SSL_connect*

any idea what am i missing or doing wrongly?

what am i doing wrong?

no need to reboot… if you don’t have ssl setup… run below if yum based system. the chef instructions sucks! yum install mod_ssl

I faced same issue. Just reboot your server & try. It worked for me :)
