Installing an SSL Certificate in Apache 2.x

After your certificate request is approved, you can download your SSL and intermediate certificate from within the SSL application. For more information, see Downloading Your SSL Certificate. Both of these files must be installed on your Web server.

To Install Renewed SSL Certificates and the Intermediate Certificates

Before you install your renewed SSL certificate you must install our intermediate certificate bundle on your Web server. You may also download the intermediate certificate bundle from the repository.

  • 1. Copy your renewed certificate, intermediate certificate bundle and key file (generated when you created the Certificate Signing Request (CSR)) into the directory that you will be using to hold your certificates.
  • 2. Open the Apache httpd.conf file and add the following directives:

SSLCertificateFile /path to certificate file/your issued certificate

SSLCertificateKeyFile /path to key file/your key file

SSLCertificateChainFile /path to intermediate certificate/null

  • 3. Save your httpd.conf file and restart Apache.
