[solved] comodo ssl

Hello guys I have bought a ssl cert. from comodo PositiveSSL This is an extension for another year as it was already working.

However this new cert. is not working, strangely enough I copied it to webmin and in webmin it is just fine https://dms.nl-digitaal.com:10000/ but in Apache it is not. I installed the certificate through virtualmin just as last time

any ideas? thank you ronald



Hi there Ronald -- what kind of issue are you seeing with your SSL certificate in Apache?

Are you receiving an error of some kind? If so, what error are you receiving?

I do not see any errors. I had some logical errors yesterday but only because I tried to change the certifcates to something else. The correct one is installed as webmin is using the same cert. In the browser it says that the certificate is self signed. but it should say Comodo PositiveSSL

I have another domain dms.kringloopict.com which is working fine and I installed it the same way. That is why I am confused.

i found it,

in this case I had to add the cert and key file to /etc/httpd/conf.d/ssl.conf

SSLCertificateFile /etc/pki/tls/certs/dms.crt

SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/pki/tls/private/dms.key then restart apache

which is odd as I never had to do this before.

Yeah that is a bit odd! It sounds like it's somehow using the default SSL config, rather than the one found in the Virtual Server.

However, I'm glad you figured it out, I was a bit puzzled and hadn't figured out what to suggest quite yet.
