View Full Version : [SOLVED] SSL Certificate Installation

January 29th, 2010, 01:33 PM
I recently installed a fresh OS on my server in my classroom. It has been a couple of years since I installed my SSL certificates from godaddy. Can someone tell me or point me to an article that tells me what I need to do? I have my old OS mounted on /OLD so I can get to all of my previous configs etc... I have my .csr, .crt, .key files

So I need to re-generate anything since I have a new install? Do I simply copy the folder that has the .csr, .crt & .key files to the new install? I have /etc/apache2/ssl with these files.

Thanks in advance,

In your old /etc/apache2/sites-available/ there should be a config file with a few lines for ssl config. If you copied that file to the new sites-available then whatever ssl cert files it references you'll want to copy over.

Another thing you might need to check would be the old /etc/apache2/mods-enabled to see if you enabled any modules on the old server setup that need to be on the new server.

Thanks for the tips. Looks like it worked.
