[Openvas-discuss] gsad won't start - MHD HTTPS problem

Thank you very much. That works (I don't need HTTPS since I'm only accessing it as localhost). I was using stock Centos5 and Openvas installed from the atomicorp repository. Seems weird that centos would ship it that way.

I also tried installing on Centos6 and that worked fine.

Thanks again,

Apparently your distribution does not ship libmicrohttpd with HTTPS
support. If you want to use HTTPS, you can ask the maintainer of the
libmicrohttpd you are using for a version which supports it or build
libmicrohttpd yourself.

If you don't need HTTPS right now, you can launch gsad with the
"--http-only" parameter to use HTTP instead.
