How do I install my Server Certificate using Apache with OpenSSL/ MODSSL?

Save necessary files:

    After completing the online certificate retrieval, you should have 2 files saved. One is the server certificate, and the other is the root certificate chain.

    Save these files onto the server in whatever directory is appropriate for your setup.

Modify Apache configuration:

    Modify your apache configuraton file.
    In most cases this is httpd.conf, although some setups may have ssl.conf or apache2.conf.

    Within the appropriate VirtualHost section, create or edit the following lines:
       SSLCertificateFile <full_path_/server.cer>
       SSLCertificateKeyFile <full_path_/server.key>
       SSLCACertificateFile <full_path_/root-chain.cer>

    Ensure to use the correct path and file names to the necessary files.
    (Note that <server.cer> and <root-chain.cer> are the files saved to the server from the instructions above, and <server.key> is the key file created previously when the CSR was created.)

Start or restart Apache for changes to take effect.
