Install Godaddy ssl certificate

Postby crosero » 14. August 2007 16:48

Hi apachefriends!

I have to install a SSL certificate from godaddy, I have read some tutorials and search for related posts, but I don't feel sure of what to do!
I am looking for a xampp tutorial to follow.
Does any one know or want to guide me through it. I will really appreciate.:)

Thanks,

Carlos

Thanks, but where do I find this file, some tutorial said that they are in the httpd.conf, others in extra/httpd-ssl.conf, what about the virtual host configuration? I am looking for something more straight, since I have never work with it and I don't want to mess the server.

and sorry for my ignorance!!!

Thanks,


Installing SSL Certificate and the Intermediate Certificate

Copy your SSL certificate file and the intermediate bundle file to your Apache server. You should already have a key file on the server from when you generated your certificate request.
Edit your Apache configuration to reference these files. The exact configuration file you will edit will depend on your version of Apache, your OS platform, and/or the method used to install Apache. In Apache 1.3, you will most likely edit the main httpd.conf file. In Apache 2.x, you will most likely edit the ssl.conf file.
Locate the following directives. If one or more of them are currently commented out, uncomment them by removing the '#' character from the beginning of the line. Set the values of these directives to the absolute path and filename of the appropriate file:
SSLCertificateFile /path/to/your/certificate/file
SSLCertificateKeyFile /path/to/your/key/file
SSLCertificateChainFile /path/to/intermediate/bundle/file
Save your configuration file and restart Apache.

You mean this one?
GoDaddy wrote:In Apache 2.x, you will most likely edit the ssl.conf file.

That's the file "extra/httpd-ssl.conf" in Apache 2.2.x

what about the virtual host configuration?

The standard vhost for SSL is allready configured in this file.

I am looking for something more straight,

Just change/add the lines for SSLCertificateFile, SSLCertificateKeyFile and SSLCertificateChainFile and adjust the paths to your locations.

BTW:
IMHO you must remove the passphrase from your private key on Windows.

But GoDaddy should know all answers. As I can see, they offer a 24/7 support...

Thanks,

in case I don't find the way to remove the passphrase can I remove the csr and key and redo these files ?

Thanks again.
