View Full Version : [ubuntu] How do you install an SSL certificate

March 23rd, 2011, 01:15 AM
I am attempting to install an SSL certificate.

I am using the following documents.


This document tells me how to create the certificate. I did this with little problems.


These documents tell me how to install it on Apache2.

Basically I enable SSL.

sudo a2enmod ssl
sudo a2ensite default-ssl

I then modify the default-ssl for the following two lines of code

SSLCertificateFile /etc/ssl/certs/my_domain.com.crt
SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/ssl/private/my_domain.key
Then I need to enable the file and restart apache2.

sudo a2ensite default-ssl
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

This appears to be all I need to do. HOWEVER, my ssl is not installed.... or I cannot see it.

I am using the following website to test the ssl certificate.


I ran this tool and got the following error.

No certificates were found.

Output from 'openssl s_client' command:

So I am not sure what to do. Why is the openssl s_client even involved. I only used this to create the certificate.

Does anyone know of a better document to tell me step by step how to install the certificate?
