Installing Digital Certificates

Our customized Apache Web Server makes it possible for you to install your own Digital Certificate. This provides you with additional power to customize your own Virtual Server to meet your specific needs. To install your own digital certificate, connect to your Virtual Server via Telnet or SSH and do the following.
  1. Place the signed SSL certificate on your Virtual Server in the ~/etc directory with the filename as ssl.cert.

  2. Place the proper private key for the certificate in ~/etc directory with the filename as

      NOTE: The key you need for this is the private key that is created when the CSR was generated. If we generated your CSR you'll need to Contact Our Digital Certificate Staff and request the private key for your domain. If it was generated elsewhere, you will need to get the private key there.

  3. Remove any encryption on your private key:

    % openssl rsa -in -out

  4. Restart your Apache Web Server:

    % restart_apache
