ApacheSSL with NEXEN

You received your certificate by email with one or several intermediate certificates and a root certificate. Keep this email within reach.

1- Retrieve your certificate(s) on your server

Go back where the private key has been generated, for example:
cd /etc/apache-ssl
In the delivery email you'll find several links. Click on them and download the associated files:
  • A: your server certificate
  • B: the certification chain

2- Set up Apache

Edit your Apache configuration file:
In order to serve your content, edit the line as you wish: DocumentRoot and ServerName

and edit the following instructions to mahke them point to your files:
# activate the line

# your server certificate (A)
SSLCertificateFile    /etc/apache-ssl/cert-0000000000-1234.cer
# your private key (generated previously)
SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/apache-ssl/
For the certification chain (file B), add a bit higher in the file:
SSLCACertificateFile /etc/apache-ssl/chain-0000000000-1234.txt 

3- Restart Apache and run a test

Once setted up, restart the Apache server.
/etc/init.d/apache-ssl restart
If it does not restart verify the SSL log (for any syntax error): /var/log/apache-ssl/error.log .
