Installing a Digital Certificate on Your Virtual Server
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.
Place the signed digital certificate on your Virtual Server in the
~/etc directory with the filename as ssl.cert.
Place the proper private key for the certificate in ~/etc
directory with the filename as ssl.pk.
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.
Remove any encryption on your private key. Use the command that
matches your Virtual Server O/S:
FreeBSD & Solaris
% openssl rsa -in ssl.pk -out ssl.pk
% ssleay rsa -in ssl.pk -out ssl.pk
If you don't know the Virtual Server O/S, try the following:
If your certifying authority (CA) suggests
installing their root security certificate on your server, you can do it
by placing the file in your ~/etc directory with the filename ssl.ca.
